Done with something at least

Last night I finally finished my corset.

Today I'm hoping to finish quilting Alice in Quiltland....

We'll see what happens.

Update on work done over the last 5 days...

Almost none...

I got 2 rows of blocks sewn, my corset is almost finished, & my bloomers are almost finished.

I am hoping to finish at least my corset today.

Well, so much for wishful thinking...

I didn't get ANY sewing done yesterday...

None...not a stitch!!

The day went by too fast & Nato & I are still trying to figure out where it went...

Maybe I can get some work done today before our birthday party...

Happy Birthday to me, Happy Birthday to me!!

Hey there, y'all!!
(Hehehe...I said y'all...)

Today is my 21st b-day!!!

I'm making it my own personal sew-in day, as my hubby has it off & is gonna watch our kids all day for me.

I REALLY need to catch up...

I took a break from my bloomers as they had been aggravating me, and as a result, I'm almost done w/ my corset.

I really need to get started on the actual "costume" part of my costume.

I am also hoping to get Nato's 2nd anniversary quilt sandwiched, quilted, and tied tomorrow... (Is that wishful thinking?)

I have yet to start on Tobi's costume, but hopefully over the next few days Nato has off I'll be able to make good leeway on both Tobi's & my costumes.

Keeping Up Appearances...

That was a good

Anyways, I've been keeping busy working on quilting projects & starting my White Queen costume.

Yesterday, I started making the bloomers for under the dress.

I'm continuing them today as well as trying to quilt one of my 2 donation quilts.

Just a general update...

I have approx. 1/2 to 3/4 of H&J border done, I still REALLY need to get all 4 of my donation quilts for Quilts for Kids ( quilted by Tuesday morning, which probably means I'm not going to be sleeping tomorrow night, BUT, we'll see!!

Nato is AWESOME!!!

He just ordered me a professional dressmaker's mannequin.

I should have it soon!!!

Getting quicker...

I have pinned the border on Hannah & Jason's quilt. All I have to do is stitch the border & it is done!!

Between yesterday & today, I laundered the material for Teresa's great granddaughter's quilt as well as the material for my mom's friend Rod's quilt.

This morning, I finished my mock corset, made from my favorite halter top, and I am still adjusting my skirt so it will fit.
