Short post this time:
I have now finished all of the dance costumes! Rejoice! It is a wonderful feeling to not have to look at that fabric anymore. Now I just have to clean the living room, I made a little bit of a mess with all the fabric ^_^.
The dance production will be today in Red Square, so I am looking forward to seeing it. I will take my camera, so there should be some pictures of the final product up here soon. I am hoping against hope that everything looks okay. They hadn't given me the buttons, and were going to sew them on themselves, so...last time I saw the costumes they didn't have buttons on them. I also wasn't able to see the finished (minus the buttons) costumes on the other girls last night, because not all of them were there at the rehersal. On the plus side, I now know how to do buttonholes on a sewing machine! Woot! It was a bit interesting because I don't have a manual for my sewing machine.
In other news, I am now a fireplace, to see a picture, go here: Kim Graham Studios.
Katie also gave me some yarn. Her Mom purchased this linen print at Hill Top Yarns in Seattle. There were some other colours, but I liked this the best. I normally don't knit with frufru yarns (Give me natural fibres or give me death-to mangle a famous quote), but I will give this a try to see how it turns out. One more week and I get to spin again! I gave up spinning for lent, and let me tell you, it has been hard. Though with the costume project I haven't been able to do much else anyway... Well, off for a day of study!
