Dishes piled in both sides of the sink, scraps of fabric and thread trailing behind me like bread crumbs, and a craft-loft that looks like a fabric bomb went off---This is the current state of my house. Again today I pushed normal responsibilities aside to sew.
Accompanied by rain (the first in literally months), Rosie's snores, and "ROME", I made some serious headway on my belt for my upcoming performance at Shimmy in the Grain in two weeks with my bellydance students.
I am really excited about the belt -- it truly is unique and artful. I was beginning to feel afraid that I wouldn't have anything for myself to wear, after working so hard on costuming to vend at the event. (Of course the costuming I perform in should be just one step up from the costuming I vend).
Here is the outfit so far. I actually wasn't going to wear these together, but I think they look cool with the mirrors as a tie in between the pieces.
