So my love got his tax return and promptly spent it. He and I now have matching I POD's. Yippieeee!!!!!! So I have a while 16 Gig to fill up with the "evil noise" I call music. Well there is a slight glitch.... I have a LOT of music. So if the 16 i now have about 9.3 Gig filled. Hopefully there is enough room for my pod casts and my audio book. We will see. I might have to up-grade to a 32 gig. If that happens I think Jay will kill me.

Reality Check

So it has become apparent to me that I need to re-think things with my wedding. I have stepped back and realized that I am probably nuts for doing an entire Elizabethan theme for my bridal party. I have never made the dress the girls will be wearing and I need to do mock-ups and numerous fittings. I will only have a month or so to do this for 3 people along with make my dress. Well I am working on things for a friend's wedding right now and reality hit about 4 am. I was still up making finishing touches on simple tunics. The thought cam to me that I will be doing this for most of my stay at mom's making my dresses. HELL NO! Sleep is a good thing I have become accustomed to getting. So my plan has changed a bit. The same color will be used. Now I just need to buy simple cotton for the under dress and make up some trim for the sleeves. Easy for me. Now I can spend more time figuring out what I am going to wear. This is what the new dresses will look like.

Freedom Gift

So, I have been working on quite a few things in the past week. One is a freedom gift for my friend Ryan. Freedom gift... explanation. In my household we have a thrall system. You are bid on for a certain number of hours of service. When these hours are finished you are given a freedom gift. I have been planning this for almost a year. I have gone the early period route for Ryan.The fabric is a sage green cotton, the trim bands area linen/cotton blend. The embroidery is done in a deep green and pale blue. I plan on putting trim on the sleeves, it is still up in the air as to if the rest of the trim will be on the neck or bottom hem. I might do both and make it a court tunic. I have a few other things to add to his wardrobe. another over tunic, 2 under-tunics, some pants, and a coat. Hopefully he likes all I have done. I have a few pictures to share and I hope for some comments.
