Well, I delivered the rest of the costumes last night. I only have one more pinafore to make and elastic to put in the last pair of bloomers and I'm done with the costumes for the latest Chaska Valley Family Theater show, Quilters - The Musical.
Hopefully, with the dress rehearsal tomorrow, I'll have some photos to show. Not that all the work I've done over the past few weeks will show, since I had to make about 10 pairs of bloomers and 9 petticoats. Why all the effort for undergarments? Well, these ladies tend to be dancing, jumping rope, flopping down on the stage and generally flashing glimpses of dainties from time to time. Not intentionally but you know how stuff happens sometimes. Fortunately, our director was savvy enough to recognize the potential for disaster and all the ladies are well protected from embarrassment during the show, not to mention adding to the the historical accuracy of the costumes with the said garments. Guess I should take pride in a job well-done, although the audience may not realize how much it took to keep the "Family" part of the CVFT name intact.
On the knitting front, well, I have a new sweater on the needles and it's going quickly but you'll just have to wait a little longer for a glimpse. After all, life is still racketing along at a breath-taking pace around here.
Oh, and I caught a cold. Figures . . .
