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.
