I managed to push through my day-long headache a bit to get some work done. (I'm getting tired of this ick. But then I'm always sick the week or two before CC. It's a tradition you know. It could be worse and be the coughing, congested sort of illness that makes airplane travel miserable I guess... although the current ick seems pretty miserable if you ask me.)
I traced out the master pattern for my black stripe jacket then cut it out. It took f-o-r-e-v-e-r because of the nature of the fabric (stripes!). I cut out each peice separately, instead of doubled fabric so that the stripes would match. It took me almost 4 hours, I think because my brain was not running on all cylinders. Still, I got it done.
While I was going crazy lining up stripes B called and we talked through the last tweaks of the tiara she is making me for my Pearl. Hands-free sets are the best! The tiara is looking amazing, not that I expected any less in my sister's capable hands. I sent her a box full of pearls and beads and things a few weeks ago, posted some pics of Regency tiaras I liked and gave her leave to do whatever with the initial design and she has blown me away. *sigh* My sis is the best.
And no dear ones, no pics until Gala night. 'Cause I'm mean like that!
