Looks like we are going on a couple-of-days-mini-vacation next week. The oppurtunity to be spontaneous and to get away and relax is most welcome, especially on behalf of Dad who has been working ridiculous hours at work for a while now.
As great as a mini-vacation will be it means less opportunity to work on my Pink Venetian before the Ren Faire. Which is coming up in a scarily short amount of time - how did that happen!! So last night I laid aside the peacock beading (which is all I want to work on these days) and got my butt in gear on the Pink Italian.
The skirt is now pleated and half sewn onto the bodice. Hey it's actually looking like a dress now! Next up are the sleeves, for which I have to come up with a brilliant decorating scheme since I haven't found happy matching trim to the bodice. *ponders*
