It must be summer!
Okay, quick recap since June~ "Midsummer" was a terrific success. Couldn't be prouder of Jacie in her first 'big' Shakespeare role! The costumes were as close to my vision as I ever could get and stay in budget. Very happy! Waiting for pictures to share.
"Rent" was much more frustrating to costume than it should have been. The theater suffers from a serious lack of communication between responsible parties; leaving me locked out of the costume storage to see what was already available and without funds to purchase what was needed. Despite knowing I was doing the show for a year and having my color scheme/look planned months ahead, most of the costumes were done in the two weeks before opening. That should NEVER happen. And guess what? I'm waiting for promised pictures.
The fall opener, "9-5", has been cast and work has begun. The most delightful news from this show-- I have been cast in it! After a five year dry spell I'm finally getting to be on both sides of the curtain again!. What it means in the long run is even less time for quilting but I'm okay with that. it's not procrastination if there's other priorities, right?
I squeezed in some sew-for-me time yesterday and finished all the blocks I need for the Scrap Vomit quilt and started putting the rows together. I hope to finish the top this weekend.
In the meantime; I plan to enter this quilt I made for a friend in Quilting Gallery's Quilts for Little Ones contest. I'll probably post about that after it's official~ :)
