I had to remake the cording - again - two more times. I figured out a way to do the bottom of the bag that I felt comfortable with. I stabilized the gathers by stitching them down before sewing on the bottom pieces.
The stiffness of the silk makes the bag hold it's shape. I think it is darling. I can't wait to get the instructions for the accessories next Monday.
I have a shoe dilemma. I started stitching the outline of the shoe and realized how big it is. I don't like it. Should I keep stitching it? Should I stitch it over one to make it half as large? Should I just forget it? I can't decide. I have a chart I bought on Ebay that is a shoe that has flowers on it. I could stitch that instead.
I guess I'll go back to the things I was working on before Rhapsody in Blue. The Merry Cox Box still has a little over 3 flowers to go.
We are getting more lake effect snow. ARGH.
