Sorry about the lack of updates. I've been staring at hairpins that need final filing, a pair of bodies that needs a lacing, a petticoat that is half pleated, a fan that needs some gluing, and a Dutch cloak that needs couching and then not working on anything. I'm grumpy, the kids are bored and grumpy, it is really hot, and the air is pretty thick with smoke from fires (not too close, thank goodness.)
I'm promising myself that I'll take pictures of the bodies tomorrow, even if the matching petticoat isn't complete and talk about how it somehow or another ended up too big and freaked me out. I got it fixed, but I think the panic involved in that is another reason I can't get going. Got derailed a bit and not recovering for some reason. I don't have time to be this moody. The dress isn't even started yet. Ack!
