I woke up this morning with stomach cramps so I am just taking it easy. I have my cup of tea at my side and am reading blogs getting inspired by all of you. I just don't have any umpf today.
Yesterday I finally finished the packing away of Christmas Decorations. Instead of putting it all in a box I really spent time on it this year. I packaged all of Sarah's decorations in one tote in case she wants to take them to her apartment next year. Her Aunt Peggy has given her an ornament every year of her life so she has a nice collection. Plus other things she has made or been given. I got out some bubble wrap and really spent some time wrapping things up good and actually labeled the boxes and so forth. It took a long time but worth it in the end.
The house is getting back to normal. D went back to work today but Sarah will be home until the 17th. So I guess really getting back to a normal routine will have to wait till then.
In the remaining time we will be working on this costume. Sarah is going to a Con in March dressed as Yuna from Final Fantasy X. We went shopping for supplies yesterday. She bought the skirt at a thrift store but we still need to paint flowers on it. She is going to get the Obi online so I am thankful we don't have to make that. We'll be doing the sleeves and the white piece that goes around the neck. the medallion at her waist and thing on the staff we'll make out of fun foam. We need to dye the lower edge of the sleeve so we picked up some Rit dye to do that. We did not by the beads or anything like that for the earring and embellishment on the sash that will come later. I wanted to see what I had at home that she might use. This definetly will be quite an undertaking. Costumes are fun to make but they really can get involved and challenging to do, at least for me they are.
