yardage and beads
I cut out the Peacock skirt last night and I have TONS of damask left. *sigh* I always do this - freak that I won't have enough fabric, pick a design that has a very efficient use of fabric and then have tons of yardage left over I have no idea what to do with. Maybe I will have do an overskirt and a train of doom after all. *ponders*

I also worked on the beading pattern. I like it, although I have to admit I did it in pencil so I can change my mind in a few days. :> At the very least it is good enough to estimate bead needs. So I placed an order this afternoon, minus the silver Czech which they are out of stock on *moo*. Then I got an email back that they don't have all the gold Czech beads I ordered in stock. They are going to send all they have but I guess I won't know just how many that is until they arrive. Very annoying.

I've looked around some other places online but Shipwreck is almost half the cost on the Czech beads! So I'll wait a bit and see if they have them back in stock in time. *crossing fingers* I can't think of anything more frustrating than not being able to finish my frock in time for CosCol because the beads I wanted were out of stock!
