Edging - - nuntium duocentesimum sexagesimum quintum

Here's the edging so far:
I don't think the blue is quite that vibrant but maybe.  I don't know if I'll finish before Wednesday.

My daughter and I are making a Steampunk outfit for her to wear when she goes to art/craft fairs for her lovely steampunk wearable art.  She has a show on July 15 (I usually join her and my sister but I'll be in Italy there- poor me) which means we have to finish before Wednesday too.  We started Saturday, finally got everything cut out yesterday, there are over 25 pieces plus some are repeated for interfacing and lining.  Today we start sewing.  We're planning to stay at it until dark- the fabric is a deep brown and unfortunately at night, there just isn't enough light for me to do it.  Hopefully tomorrow we will have the outfit to show off.


  1. So no pressure then!!! My goodness good luck with finishing everything before you leave. We have some steam punk related items (made in leather) that are going to be exhibited in the art exhibition. Just did not realise how popular steam punk is.

  2. A lot to do before you set off. Good luck!

  3. Wow, that edging is beautiful!!! :)

  4. I love that blue! I have a hard time working at night also, unless I'm sitting in my favorite chair tatting. :-)

    Good luck! I hope you finish on time!

  5. Lovely edging, beautiful colour blue
    You gave no pressure to finish the outfit tgen.
    I hope you enjoy Italy, it's very hot in Europe at the moment,

  6. Whoa...that's a bright blue! Pretty!


gratias maximas- it's wonderful to hear what you have to say!
