Friday, still sewing...

     I think I bit off more than I can chew.  I don't think I will every catch up.  But I will have two helpers today so that will at least encourage me and keep me going!

     The Harlequin costumes are done!  I don't ever want to see black and white fabric again.  Now I am onto villager costumes and I only have 24 of them to do.  At least the colors vary.  I am just fatigued.

     Our pay check finally came, it was only 7 days late.  I have been able to snowflake money to the house account.  I am still $175.00 short, but the shop has been slow this week.  That is a good thing because I need to get costumes done and I can't have it both ways.   So I will have to hope that I can get that done next week or take it out of the very small costume profit.  Very small.  It is hard to concentrate on these two accounts when I am so busy.  I can barely remember to eat.

     I have a long rehearsal tomorrow and I have to get the music recut tonight.  The mock up of the coach is done and has to go to the artist and the man who will bend the conduit.  Details, Details.

     Out My Window:  I found a chicken sitting on 5 eggs in the yew hedge.  She was so cute.  I banded her, so we can use her as a brood hen.  We cannot have a rooster in the city limits.  But this was I don't have to worry so much about new chicks.  She will take care of them.  It has been cold and rainy yesterday and will continue today.  Good no temptation to be out in the yard.

     Well back to sewing hell!

Have a great and productive day!



  1. I admire your determination and perseverance with that much work in front/ahead/behind you. Glad to hear the Harlequin costumes are done! A little variety sure makes a difference, but remember to take your breaks and dont overwork yourself.

  2. Glad you are feeling better. I dont know how you do it all I am struggling working a few extra hours a week!!!!

    Did they ever send you cleaning check?

  3. "Only 24 costumes??" OMG I would have to block out six months for such a project! You work so hard!!! Good luck on the costumes and I hope you get a lot of assistance from your helpers!

  4. I've been working on a quilt for over 5 years now and it's no where near completed (ha ha!)! I'd love to see pics of some of your costumes.
