I could update you on my week, but do you see what is staring at you above? A freaking beaded Peter Pan collar! I couldn’t sleep last Friday, the night before I made a day trip to NYC to see and meet a group of awesome sewing ladies, so I started beading at 2 in the morning, and continued during the bus ride up and back. Figuring out the layout so the design would be a mirror image on both sides was tough, but lightly gluing them in place was where time racked up. Lightly fixing them using Aleene’s glue made sewing so much easier because I didn’t have to worry that I was sewing them in the right place and/or at the right angle. So, this weekend, I will be photographing this baby as well as the matching shorts I made to go with them. Yeh, that’s right, a matching polka dot short and top set with rhinestones!
