Bridal weekend

Met up with my friend A and 3 of the 4 other bridesmaids at David's Bridal on Sunday for dress decisions. It went pretty well as we were all fairly easy to please. We tried on a number of styles (I think 6 or 8) alltogether and came back to the first dress style as being the winner. I think the Royal blue will look fine on me and I think I may be the only bridesmaid who will not require alterations as the hem is the perfect length. I had to get a size 14. F'in dress industry. Hello, I lost 40 pounds so I would no longer be a size 14 and the last formal dress I bought was a 12. If they had to face the women in the dressing rooms having a conniption because their wedding dress is 2 sizes bigger than they normally wear I believe they would re-think the whole size deffinitions.

The flower girls looked adorable and Miss K did numerous piroettes to test drive her gown. Too cute.

Saturday I spent in bed. My head felt like it was stuffed with cotton and I slept most of the day. I guess I needed that cause Sunday I felt just fine. I really could have used the time on Saturday to work on stuff for 12th Night, but I will have to find time this week. I have Yeti tabbards to finish, springerle to make, caramels to make, finishing items for the shade fly to hand off, and various and sundry presents to complete before the 13th.

I have done a great deal with DJ's sweater. I steeked the front and sleeve openings with G2's excellent direction. Both sleeves are sewn in and the cuffs are finished. The bottom hem is sewn and the body simply requires the neck and front button bands (and buttons) to be finished. The hat is almost ready to start decreasing and then I can add the ear flaps and stich the front band in place. The end is in sight and I am loving how it looks so far. This is the most complex sweater that I have made and I think it really turned out well.
