I went with [livejournal.com profile] 3ravensringo and [livejournal.com profile] keltique to a chantey sing in Maryland last Tuesday. I really enjoyed it, and not just for the singing. Somehow it never occurred to me that I could keep singing without being in some kind of organized group – I was always in a choir or two when I was singing. Go ahead and drag me back to that any time. Maybe in a decade or so when life slows down and I have time again I’ll pick it up as a regular hobby. I miss singing.

I worked on the corset for almost 6 hours yesterday (and dropped another $200+ into my junk-bucket of a car) it’s so close to being done. I can taste it. Cotton doesn’t taste so great. I just need to put bias tape on, cut & tip the bones, and put more bias tape on. The hold up being I need to order the six spring steel bones for the front and back (now that I know how long they need to be) and more metal tips for the spiral boning. *crosses fingers that I’ll have enough of the spiral for the whole thing* So close.

I need to bug Scott about getting some trim for his houppelande so I can finish that up too. It should be a quick job once I have what I need. Getting the trim though has proven highly difficult. Joann’s forgot our custom order and then got it wrong, so we cancelled it – but I’m not having much luck finding the stuff online. Then, I decide on the next project. Start right in on the next corset, or do something different and/or easy first for a change of pace? There’s so much I want to sew that it’s hard to choose what gets to actually happen and what just gets dreamt about.
