EZ Mod Collars, Gratitude, and Progress

Thank you so much for the words of encouragement from my last post, ladies. It means a lot to know I’m not alone in cyberspace. I was also uplifted by this lovely thread on The Steampunk Empire. Thought you’d enjoy it too.

I also found this easy, no sew tutorial on changing shirt collars for different looks….with lots of great pictures. I tend to want to make things more difficult than necessary and this is a great reminder that simple is great!

Currently, I’m working through my disappointment by providing technical guidance to my daughter, who is constructing a Sakura outfit for the upcoming con. It will look something like this….

And, I’m cleaning the pit of despair(my studio) in order to regain my sanity. It currently looks like a hurricane and a tornado went dancing together. I actually prefer to work at the kitchen table when painting or crafting, making it too easy to let the beast get out of hand.

Next, I’ll be sewing a new Jedi outfit for Master G using
Simplicity 5840
. He finally outgrew the last one, but didn’t outgrow his love of “the force”.

    Ooh can't wait to see what your daughter came up with. ^^ I'm sure that it will be very pretty. Not a fan of Star Wars, but it will be interesting to see the new Jedi outfit.
