This past weekend is how I envision my dream life. My retired life? It was fun and productivity in things I enjoy doing.
I had visits with my two children…always a plus for me!
I had a costume event with Shirley. We went to Dalnavert Museum where they hosted a Dracula theme exploration of the house. I don’t have pictures because the house was darkened and photographs were not permitted (because it would ruin the experience of the others at the event) but I did get one of us at the coat check/bar.
Sunday, I bought new fabric because the fabric I planned to use for my next project was insufficient. Love excuses to amass more stuff for my hoard. And unusually, this time I am starting a new project because I finished one. I have a corset cover now. I had to adapt a pattern that I borrowed from Shirley as it simply would not contain the girls.
I am pleased with the result. My mannequin, Trudy, is wearing a blood red corset and you can not see it.
I really needed the corset cover because of my Edwardian shirtwaist. To much skin would show…even by modern standards! And the cover does the trick.
All in all, a productive and fun weekend!
PS I did not kill my dog. I was training my son on how to give her insulin and was so busy talking I could not remember actually measuring, checking and rechecking that I had the right amount in the needle. Tense night as I worried that I had over dosed her! Turns out I did fine. I just didn’t remember doing it!
