is that even possible if it is not yet spring?! it is so lovely out today, i don't wanna work! i have been getting loads of stuff done recently though. i finished my costume top for the emerald rain competition performance, here it is above. i haven't yet decided if i will wear it with this red velvet choli, or a black one with lace sleeves. the skirt is also a deep red, and there is a black velvet hip scarf that goes under my belt. i won't be wearing this necklace with it, although i think it looks pretty in the photo!
here is the skirt i finished that is for the peacock colors costume i want to pull together. it needs some blues and purples in there somewhere. (i have the peacock pictures in the header right now to inspire me...aren't they beautiful creatures?!) i have lots of fabrics that would make great pieces for it, and haven't made any decisions on what to do next. that is my greatest flaw i think, indecision! even in the grocery store, i go to the one that is smaller, to avoid all the millions of choices! one day when my one of my daughters are home, and it is nice and light, we will have to play dress up, and take photos of the mixing and matching of all the costume parts i have so far. i have tried it just laying them out on the floor, but it just isn't as much fun!
o.k., i guess now i will go ahead and drag my body to the sewing machine, and start in on the dresses waiting for me to alter them for weddings coming up. (by the way, that is not my alterations rack, that was a shot of the dresses at the shop) it is starting to pick up a bit more, so i will photograph and post more of those soon, too. i am finding that my heart is just not in the bridal things as much anymore. i am getting more bellydance costume work, and that is definately more interesting for me. but on sunny days like today, nothing seems interesting enough to sew, unless i can drag my machine outside! but then, even though it looks pretty out, it is still too chilly to sit outside for that long!
