Bodice of Dooooom!

The bodice of doooom!  My co-workers say it's Easter colors.  I suppose that's true... but NOT a finished product!  Just the test bodice.  Strangely enough, I kind of like it.  It's growing on me - a little like mold, sneaking up and settling in. 

The lining material is stuff we had lying around the studio - heck, everything in this is stuff we had lying around the studio!  I know it will work for workshops, which is all I require of it.

But I do like the bright and cheery colors of it.

Other than that, I've been cutting out skirt panels.  I have two skirts, both circle skirts.  The underskirt is two shades of yellow, the overskirt green and blue.  And trimmed out the ears.  My goodness how they are going to be trimmed!!  This is by far the most trim-laden character I've yet to play.  Oh, Penelope.... how bright and shiny you will be!

On the quilt front, I'm still a little stalled on Boston Molasses Flood.  My weekends are now officially GONE, which only leaves me weeknights.  And since I am still working on costuming... well.... um.  Yeah, excuses, excuses.  I'll get back to it soon.  Really.

We put bird feeders out this week - finally - and filled them with bird seed.  The blue jays love the peanuts, and we're getting hordes of little birds.  Little Attila the Hun birds... invading from everywhere!  The weirdest thing was not the squirrel sitting in the middle of the bird feeder - that's normal.  No... we looked out a window this past weekend and saw a cat picking up a peanut and chomping down.  ?!  Do cats actually EAT peanuts???

I still think that bodice is hideous.

Great... now you've hurt its feelings! It's sobbing pink all over my desk - I'll NEVER get it all cleaned up! :)
