Pictureless update

Just a quick update post:

I finished the last of the 23 lace appliques today!

I also put it on Donna, and it looks like I don’t have to tweak the hem. Whew.

Now, I’m one hook and eye away from finishing the outside of the dress entirely. Next step: Figuring out how to do a waist stay and tulle petticoat, while still leaving room to attach the lining to the waist stay, because I also figure that can substitute for the waistband piece on the inside and therefore add one less layer.

Also, it’s a good thing I wasn’t planning on sewing last night, because all of the brouhaha about Google Reader shutting down was very distracting. Thankfully, the Twitter sewcialists were quick to point out options for those of us who used it for our blog reading. (Of course, this does make me wonder if Blogger will be on the chopping block at some point too…)

Edit: I’ve started using Feedly and like it so far, but for those of you who use Bloglovin’, here’s how you can follow me on there:

  2. You're not too far behind. This was just announced yesterday, and the only reason I heard so quickly was because Twitter jumped all over it really fast!

  3. I also read it, I'm currently using bloglovin and appearantly they have a tool to insert google reader into bloglovin…

    Good luck with your dress, from what I've seen so far it looks great!

  4. I started using Feedly once I heard, and so far, I really like the format. I will need to look into Bloglovin, though, because I saw something on Lladybird about a blog needing to be “claimed” in order to be followed on there? Guess that's something to do after work.
