a break from beading

Sorry for the radio silence lately. Last week was insane then I was in Virginia Beach this for the annual Mary Kay Career Conference - which was great fun! I came home to three days of nasty migraines. Blah. We are finally getting the storm front tonight that has probably been the source of all my troubles so hopefully my head will start behaving soon. I have things to do darn it!

On the sewing front I haven't done a blessed thing with my CosCon wardrobe *rolls eyes*, am 3/4 of the way done with the hand sewn eyelets on my Titanic Corset (got one done while saving seats at Career Conference (yes I got some funny looks but it was a fun conversation starter) and have beaded a bit more on the Peacock.

Sadly no more beading for a while - I've run out of beads! I was *so* close too, I really thought I was going to get away with not having to buy any more seed beads! But no such luck so I ordered the needed beads this morning. They should be here by next week. I still have plenty of time to make my self-imposed May 1st deadline. A break is probably a good thing anyway, frankly I'm starting to feel a little crispy around the edges on the whole beading thing.

I decided I should work on putting the beaded bodice together, by way of inspiration when the beads do arrive, only to discover my iron was DOA, no hope of life support. *grr* Beastly little thing. It did it on purpose I know it! Luckily Mom has a spare I can use until I can get a replacement. I love my Mom.

I love your mom too, 'cause that means we all get to see a pretty beaded bodice sooner rather than later!

I'm glad you had a nice time at the conference!

And boo to your iron!

Hi Jenny, OT message:

Just a quick note to say thank you very much for your kind donation to my project. It is deeply appreciated and will now go forward to help in the rebuilding of a very unstable part of the world.

If you'd like to follow the Peacock Dress filter, you'll be pleased to know that you're now added to the list - just to check, let me know if you can't see this post.

Additionally, if you would like to, I'd love it if you help spread the word - perhaps at midatlancostume?

Once again, thank you, and keep in touch!

All the best, Cathy
