So here is an example of what I spent several hours cutting after I had the strips cut out of the hide.
This is the dress that the buckskin will go on. I had to put fringe on the sleeves and the bottom. I figured 186 inches of fringe. So about 6 yards of tedious cutting, but it is done. Hooray!
I also have a $5000.00 dress that needs to be hand hemmed with a prick stitch. and I spent most of the day on this yesterday after I got the Indian gown done. I was too fatigued last night to finish getting the edges moved up so that is my first job today is to finish this bugger. This all has to be done by hand as they want the dress to grow with the girl.
Look at the mess in the shop, I can feel a lecture coming on from Sissie. Oh by the way that is the ironing basket. Yikes it is taking over the world.
I plan on trying to kick out a couple more wedding dress today after I finish the above monster. I will feel good if I can get this done. Maybe I can take away the sick feeling I am carrying about my purse.
I keep telling myself that this is not that big a deal, I am fine and it is a pain and it is expensive, but I can live with that. Just keep on truckin this too will just be a distant memory.
The funny thing is that when I went out this morning, I took the truck as I did not want to beg Hub's for the key to the car and get yet another Sheldon Cooper lecture. I locked the truck after, and I made sure I had my purse and I hung up the key which is on a long lanyard that can be hung around my neck. Then I took my purse and put it on a hook in the family room right by the computer. See I can be taught
Yesterday I took pounded pork steaks and gravy into my friends house along with newly dug garden potatoes and a bag of frozen veggies. I whipped up a mock cheese cake with some cream cheese, a container of cool whip and a graham crust and a can of lite cherry pie filling everything came out of the storage so I purchased nothing. I love to cook like this.
Well the shop is waiting and I am hungry so I had better get to work. What are you guys doing today?
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
