The eternal fabric hunt is OVER!! Yeah – I am telling ya! I have been to at least 30 fabric stores in the last month – up and down the eastern seaboard and I think that I am done – really…I’m done…no...really….ah crap! I forgot something! Fabric for Pod’s costume.
Our next show is THE BORROWERS – hence the HUGE chair in our scene shop! And the costume designer is being ueber-picky about the fabric for this one – oh wait…that’s me...crap! Okay so I’M being super picky about the fabric – but I have this thing in my head and I thought I could find it – oversized prints, So as you can see I have found some of it – but the last one….that’s been a problem. So I have decided to buy some fake-linen (‘cause real linen would wrinkle waaaaaay too much) which has the drape I need, and will stencil 8 yards like a crazy person.
I found a “wallpaper” stencil at Joann’s – which is perfect!!! This is a job for interns!!!! ‘Cause I have interns this summer – it’s a concept I know, but I am very excited (can’t you tell?)
As for my world cup knitting? 404 stitches on size 4 mm needles is a lot of stitches…but it is happening…slowly but surely. I’ll take a few pics when it looks a bit more like a sweater. USA vs. Czech republic tomorrow – pity I have to work, but I think espn3 will repeat the game at 5pm…guess I’ll have to leave work early…aw shucks!
