Close-up of Gold and Sparkly

Happy Birthday, John!

A few days ago, I took a photo of this doublet stomacher as I was applying trim and gold fleurs. Now, it’s all beaded and assembled, and this is a close-up of how the beading turned out—I like it! I hope Lionel will, too!

I had a sick husband today, home with me instead of at work —although he ended up working all day anyway. At least he didn’t have to get fully dressed and drive and deal with the office environment when he felt like crap. But, because he was home, it worked out really well for me to have lots of hand-sewing to do—I could be nearby if he needed me.
