Its been a while.

I am trying a new diet of sorts..  It's temporary, and will undo itself shortly..  But, meanwhile I have no energy to sew, garage sale, or even, *gasp* do a sweep by the G-Mart on the way home from work.

I'm feeling better this week though, and fortified by a nice dinner of chicken livers last night (plain, fried with salt, while Mr Snork hid in the other end of the house, pinching his nose), I think it's sew time. 

I wonder if I can pull it off before Halloween:

 I also like these two:

I wonder how speedy I can be.. 


  1. 1. Ring Mistress
    3. Pirate Wench

    Both suit you.
    You are in control.

    Of course you can pull it off. Yards of netting and remnants. Don't be fussy about perfect fit - costumes are approximate and you can always use safety pins (this straight from my old days in theatre and one of the mantras of a respected costume designer I worked with.)

    Nice to have you post again.

    Sorry Ro.. er... Mr. Snork doesn't like chicken livers. My father and I used to go out every once in a while for a private lunch or dinner of liver - chicken and otherwise. Bacon and onions, of course. It was special. I cherish the memory with a smile.
    We did understand that the smell and look was not for everyone.
    Oddly, everyone in my family loved Pate...

    Props to Mr. S for not actively gagging and running away.

  2. Haven't had a chicken liver in ages...it's definitely not for everyone, lol. Poor Mr. Snork.

    Glad you are feeling a little better. I don't know how much time you have, or how much time it's supposed to take to make this costume, but you got 7 days from today. So in the words of Tim Gunn, "make it work!" :)
