The Last Block
I did a little shopping over the weekend. Amy Mitten makes the most delightful little do-dads for the caskets. She calls them Casket Keepsakes and they are online classes. She has released four now and I've just been looking at them to this point. But Saturday I pulled the plug on the first release which is called Winter. It's two little designs, one a thread winder holder and the other a needle holder. The directions are amazingly complete and I can't wait to get started on them and I should have the supplies in hand by the weekend. I actually should be able to do some of it on the train because they are small in hand pieces. That would be awesome.
Most of my space time over the past week has been working on my new pirate / wench costume. I actually think the corset is going to work and I even have to take it in a tad. The medal stays I ordered should be in today or tomorrow and then I'll know for sure how much altering it really needs. Then I can start on the skirt. I picked up the silk fabric and have already cut it out. It's going to look so cute! I'm also planning on making a second costume for the cruise in October because in addition to pirate night, there is going to be a Halloween costume party! Our cruise leaves on the 31st so it will be perfect. We all plan to be a Disney character and I'm going to be Merida from Brave this time around. I have the Medieval dress pattern already and I picked out the clearance fabric now I just need to wait for a good sale. :-)
Have a great week! And thanks for stopping by. Hopefully there will be a midweek update because I won't be able to wait an entire week to show of the Marquior. :-) I love the feeling of having a huge project finished. hmmm.... but what to start on next? Something new? Or get back to something else? I just don't know at this point... :-)
