Saturday, Almost done...

     I spent the better part of the day yesterday trying to get Cinderellas ball gown that the step sister's tear up done.  I have never sewn with costume satin before as it is such a cheap nasty cloth.  But I decided as the dress had to be ruined I would use this very cheap acetate $2.00 a yard stuff.

     Well this is where cheap becomes a problem as the fabric had no give and slipped and slid all over.  I am very good at sewing on slippery fabric but this was beyond anything I have ever done.  It took me about 4 times as long as it should have with my frustration mounting with every mistake.

  Finlay I was able to get to the school not even knowing if the costume would fit, but is fit like a glove.

    Rehearsal was nightmare, if that is what a dress rehearsal is what a mess.  But I remember coming home when the studio was mine and saying the same thing.  Just way too much time standing around doing nothing.  The music was not cut correctly on almost every number.  What the ()*&^.  Oh well not my problem.

     I am due at the school at 11:30 and I still have a costume I altered that I need to press.  I also need to take in a pair of trousers and hem a dress.

     It will be a long day, but when it is over, it is OVER.

     Looking forward to coming home, to my very messy house and shop.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.

  2. I hope everything has turned out okay, and that you are able to put your feet up and relax! Before you start more projects, of course.

  5. Some day, I will like to read that you have truly stepped away from the studio. I know you may feel guilty at first, but they will figure it out. I might be a little self centered right now and focused mostly on me and my family, but with being the sole wage earner, plus having a large place to maintain, health issues, and trying to pay down debt, I think you truly have rationale to stop at least one of your giving activities and the studio seems like it provides a great deal of aggravation and frustration. Signed, None of my business to speak to you this way, but coming from a recovering over committer/volunteerer
