I'm calling Steve and inviting him to the party, since I have no timetil then might as well then if Joe comes I'll meet him too...  but I have a feeling in the end of all this I will be very tired from trying to juggle people. ;p  but I really just did get a influx of people.. never before and now two.  anyways....

lets see.. I have stupid today at lunch. :( and i think I'll work on the trim at work more.. gives me something to do... then after I get all taht stuff doen I think I'll just work on the bloody picnic shawl again....  actually, I really wish I could just buy one.. but hey I'll do whatever. ;p  but if I find one.... ;p  anyways...aside from taht I'm just at work.. if I weren't working with stupid I would just call Steve today but since I have stupid....  oh well she has to learn I'm not a waitress, I will work when I get soemthing to do and I'm not stealing and paid per hour... good grief I wish she would quit.  anyways...  not much else to say....  do you know what I've been hankering to make lately? (yes soemthing else)  the breathe dress...  but too much money right now..  perhaps someother time.. I still have to finish Dorme and start on motee.. that will be alot of work with the beads and all... (yeah this is comming from me. ;p )  but I got out my mournng gown last night so it could hang for the party on the 5th, its really wrinkled, so perhasp I'll toss it in the dryer to get de wrinkled... but I worr about the trim taht took me alot of money and time... more the time then the former... but we will see next week if its still bad. hmm.. what else?  not too much else....  its kinda funny to have time in the mornings...  I never d anyhing in the morns at all...  sorry now I'm just rambleing!  I better update the timeline and then I'm off!

I am seriously thinking ofre doing all my zippers, just going out buying all the invis zips I can find ripping them all out of my costumes and seeing what happens.. however the onlything tht keeps me from doing so is the fact taht the vevlet is very fragile.....  btu my zipper sewing is appaling... :(

and lets see if my "color" for the LJ will work out...  hmmm can't find the link for inserting a pic so...  anyways...  there is the link..  hope you enjoy!  but what for the next project... ;p  perhaps I will work on motee finnally ? or should i work on gwen? ;)  also some "firend"s came by, and they made me feel better....  so I'm not so down.. but anyways...

here is where I'm at on my trim, keep in mind this is a 6" hoop and the repete pattern is about 6" its not exact since the things are mostly the same design on top of eachother but you get the point of it.... I'm slowly adding bullion to the parts as I go. so they are the first two pics here http://photobucket.com/albums/f187/lordofhaladin/mourning/?sc=1&multi=2&addtype=local&media=image&test=test or

As far as the secret goes..... I have palnned taht when i get pais I'll order the gladdy fabric, then the next week order the pearls (10-20 of them so that will be about 25 bucks, and if i need it I'll order more bullion.... but we'll see. so... but all hangs on this paycheck. then 200 bucks out for gladdy fabric. and 125 for the fabric (dye too!) and pearls. I've got to get the dye for the trim!

the headache from hell is back, but I did get the mourining trim layed out. (and I think the chenille thread hates me, and its going everywhere! (I decided I like it green..... so I'm useing the "wrong" color) but here are some pics...


since I'm lazy I'm just posting a link. the scale one is of use to me anyways b/c my hand like taht is exactly 6" from pinkey to thumb. I have a feeling this will be "fun" ;)

this makes me sleepy, (the beading, not hte typing. ;p) but anyways.. I definatly have to get some smaller pearls for the big flowers. but the pearls I have are perfect for the small flowers. so thats thire use... but I fear I still have to plot out the emb pattern on te skirts today, I think I'll be done putting the pearls on before long (I've already done 2 sides of the bodice) and I don't want to do the seeds beads till I have the pearls on so.... but anyways.... here is the link to the pearls I want


I'll probably get about 10 starnds of these too. but while I', ordering from them I might as well get a few red seed beads and some gold for the cranberry and I'll see if they have green iris... so..



http://www.firemountaingems.com/details.asp?PN=H152423SB hmm a bit too much... but still its about the same as the otehr ones and more of them..... back to beading!
