  • Mood:


Simplicity stole my wedding dress.. lol (though you know.. if that pattern was available like 3 years ago, it would have made my life a lot easier)

I'm hunting down a pattern to alter for a costume, and I bumped into that. It made me giggle a little bit.
Now I'm off to the fabric store for ZIPPERS!

And I might go pick up Kung-Fu hustle, too

Back from shopping. I picked up my zippers& some patterns, as well as some of my favorite brown suede-type on SALE! (30% off) at Jo Ann's today. They didn't have the silver lace I was looking for, though. I could have sworn that they were the ones that carried the gold lace that I used to trim my EGL outfit, and I really just wanted the same stuff in silver. I started to wonder if maybe I got it at Hancock's. Jo Ann's had the blue mesh ribbon I used on the EGL outfit, so it only followed that they were the ones that had the gold lace, since I thought I'd bought them in the same place...
But I figured I'd check Hancock's anyway. Hancock's didn't have it. They DID have a very young sounding baby crying it's lungs out in the back of the store, though. I say young, because it wasnt' the peircing howl of an older baby, and it really sounded like it was just faking it. but it kept at it for a goot 5-10 min >..<
I bought some white ruffled/lace/eyelet/trim/stuff, and 2 types of silver trim at Hancock's. While they didn't have what I was looking for, they had somthing that would also look nice. I also bought a spool of horsehair braid for skirts, and 5 yards of GORGEOUS fabric. I can't really describe it, but it feels almost like taffeta, but a bit stiffer, and it's a very very pretty gunmetal color. 5 yards should be enough to do somthing nice with it.

Anyway.. now that I have closures, I should be able to finish up Norn in a few more days. I should also be able to make some decent progress on N-kun's Klein costume. But, to be completely honest, I think it's the last one of the three I'm going to finish. I think I'm going to try to get most of the work done on this commission before I finish my other costumes. I know exactly what I want to do now, so it should go really quickly.

Well.. unless I get distracted again.
When I was at Hastings, I picked up Kung-Fu Hustle, and two CS Lewis books. Mere Christianity and The Screwtape Letters. :(
Since I'm very eager to read more about C.S. Lewis' views on Christianity, it's going to be hard to stay focused.


    Yaaaay! The con is over! Time to get ready for the next one! Sometimes, twitter just cannot contain all the things I want to say about a subject.…

  • Oh wow, I haven't blogged in forever!

    I kind of forget about Livejournal now. It feels so empty that I've joined a bunch of communities, but it's not really helping! Since November,…

  • November is almost over already?!?!

    I've really enjoyed not having anything important to do for a while. I've been cleaning (a little bit), quilting (a lot, but in short bursts), and…
