My bed has been seeing a lot of me since last week.   I just lay there and read because that is about all I can do.  I have re-read Robin Hobbs  Farseer Trilogy and I must have read them so quickly last time or not really took in all the detail.   It was almost like reading new books.

When I could get up and do something I have been working on the wedding dress.

I am so afraid of making a mistake that I am taking it very slowly but I am nearly there.  I have tacked the 9 layers of net ready to cut the skirt to the right length.  I don't have a dressmakers dummy to work on so it is very slow.  The alteration to the shoulders is finished and tomorrow is the final fitting.

Keeping the white dress clean has been a constant worry but I worked out that it was better to extend my sewing bench with an extra table up here on the 2nd floor.  I can keep the floors clean and the white fabric white with no red soil marks on it.  She is getting married here on the island so I suppose it could be all stained around the hem by the end of day.  I have attached a hanger to go over her wrist to keep that train up.  Hope it works.

Goodness, yes, there's something to take slow and steady! Good to know the end is in sight...

Final fitting tomorrow.  Hope all is right.


I love Robin Hobb. It’s always a pleasant surprise when crafters I follow have more in common than just crafting:)
