pain in the neck.

This bib was a fun challenge; or rather, fun to draft the pattern and then fun to finish. I’d be super happy with it if I didn’t absolutely need to redesign the pattern to make the making part easier. Bit of a nightmare to make, really.  And not in a way that I think would get easier each time.

This was made yesterday; today was mostly spent trying to nap away whatever it was I did to my neck in my sleep. Ouch. Though I did make it out for an interview; looks like I’ll be helping out a dance costume designer with production in her studio.  I never really was a sparkles and frills girl myself, but it should be fun. And I think I’ll learn a lot. So in spite of really not doing anything today, I’m feeling very accomplished. And hopefully I’ll wake up fresh and nimble to give my talk at MCA tomorrow!
