Two more motifs to go and I'll be done with the pearl! Oh and attach the sleeves of course.

I was going to try and go to bed at a descent hour tonight & tomorrow night (since I won't be sleeping at CC!) but I'm going to stay up to try and finish instead. You have no idea how low my stress level will be if I don't have to pearl at CC.

And my Mom is a brick. She not only talked me through my first good CC cry this morning, prayed with me and talked me out of hacking off my train (making much more work for myself) but she worked on finishing bits of my black stripe jacket today so I could focus on the Pearl. So I think the jacket will be done before I leave too, or just a few things left I can work on at the LJ meet-up.

I'm so excited about how close I am to finishing I can't stand it!

I can't wait either! Is it close enough for us to start counting in hours until we are at CC yet? :P

I'll stay up with you. I'm hemming my Regency dress to wear. It's my re-cycled one that I shortened the sleeves, the hem, and took it in so I could wear it again. I figure I'll be up about 2 more hours.

You are *brilliant* for staying true to your vision to end and not compromising. Can't wait to see it!

And yes - Yay mums! Mine does all the restoration work on my 20s dresses - she's an absolute anchor and very talented. Sounds like yours was there for you in so many ways - I'm sure she knows you adore her.

I am SO excited to see this in all it's glory. And so psyched to see you too - just a little over a day - whee!

p.s. I send you an email re more shoes...

Your mom is the awesome. How fabulous that she's helped! An sometimes it's really nice just to have someone to pray with :)

I'm sure your pearl dress is just gorgeous. We're all often so critical of our own work.
