Sewing Room Friday and other news
I'm finally going to post some pictures. Believe it or not, I did clean up a little bit before starting this next set of costumes. It's a shameful state, I know, but right now, finishing costumes is a top priority, with a whole crew of us working 6 - 8 hours a day on sewing.
The result of today's efforts is a shirt for Lumiere. On deck for tomorrow, the Beast's tattered shirt and 8 little pill box hats for our teacups.
In knitting news, I cast on my February socks for A Year In Socks today. Unfortunately, I'm not even done with the increases on the toes but considering how much sewing I had to do, I think just casting on was an accomplishment.
In hockey news, the boys played their last two district games this week. We tied Tonka on Tuesday and beat E.P. Black 3-0 tonight. We've earned a double-elimination spot in the playoffs and are just waiting for the last few teams to clinch their spots to find out our playoff schedule. It's going to be a wild couple of weeks in this household, between district playoffs and Beauty and the Beast opening in 13 days.
Yikes! Where's the caffeine? Gimme, gimme!
