Last update before the convention

Yesterday I got everything done that I was expecting to do. This means I still have the tunic to finish. I will work on that today. With any luck, it'll be wearable. I'm not 100% certain I'll get the frill on the top of the band done, but I'm sure as hell going to try. I may stop by the Bernina store and see if they ever got my ruffler foot in. I don't know. Part of me just wants to finish and drop the machine off and see WTF is going on with the tension.

So yesterday, I had to re-sew the boots many times. They aren't perfect, but they are satisfactory. I'm not 100% happy with them, but they'll work. They feel good, and I think I can walk around all day in them. I'll be bringing a lot of hello kitty bandaids in case I need to protect my heels from blisters. I also finished the quiver. It's pretty lolworthy since it's made out of a stretch of PVC pipe, but it looks pretty good. I still need to stick some foam into the bottom so when I put the short kid's arrows in there, they'll stick out a little bit. I also want the foam there so that they stay in place and don't fall out. Floral foam would be best, even though it's messy. I don't have any, though, so I'm going to hack up furniture foam. Another option would be batting, but I don't want it coming loose and getting out.

Anyway.. gotta hit the bike here in a little bit. I'll bike to Criminal Minds, get my shower in, and work on that costume. I have to run errands in the afternoon, and do a TON of packing, so my goal is finishing sooner rather than later. I also need to do the dishes, run a load of denim, and scoop cat litter. SO MUCH TO DO. I wish I had another weel :( (Though, if I had a FULL week, I'd probably be tempted to make another costume for no reason)


    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…
