my life is green fuzz
I just finished cutting all the velvet. Whew! I am covered in green fuzz. In fact my scissors, ironing board and just about everything else in the library is covered in green fuzz. I guess I’ll have to pull out the vacuum cleaner later. I can’t wait until I start sewing the velvet and my bedroom is covered in fuzz too – what fun. *note sarcasm* Ooh, it’s going to be a pretty gown though!

I still have the lining and my slip to cut out but my feet and back needed a break. In addition to the gown, I cut out a new throw pillow. I needed a new green pillow anyway (since the old one doesn’t go with the new duvet cover I made for my bed) and I figured a little practice-sewing-on-velvet-project would be a good idea. I’m thinking of making it a “Rohan” pillow by appliquéing a horse (out of the silk perhaps?) on it. I’d take a design from one of those gorgeous banners in the Golden Hall. *sigh* I love those banners.

Ahh, velvet fuzz. I finally stopped finding fuzz from my Russian court dress, made fall 2001, in my machine a few months ago...

What joy! I remember when my Mom made a black velvet ballgown bodice - even the cats were covered in black fuzz for months! The kitties drove Mom frantic by constantly laying on the velvet pieces. They also liked playing with the fuzz balls that gathered in odd places (only area rugs in that house). *shakes head* Cats...
