― Patrick Rothfuss, The Wise Man's Fear
After trying on my skirt I realized that the waist band had a little too much give. Not wanting to embarrass myself at convention and have my gorgeous skirt fall off. I decided I needed to put a elastic waste band in it. So I had to go find the right elastic this morning. Finally found it at the 3rd stop. I knew I should have went there first. But then again I wouldn't have found some crochet thread I needed. or the beads that are perfect if I hadn't hit the other two stores first.
So now I am doing my least favorite thing. Hand sewing the elastic in. It is the ideal solution though. I will be able to wear my creation without fear of something awful happening. If Marv was home he would be laughing at me each I time I let loose an ouch!!! He always chuckles when I prick myself, as he knows how much fun I am having.
I have several small projects I want to finish up this weekend. One I might even be able to post pictures of. OOOOOOOOOh that will be a treat. It's the trim work for the under dress I am wearing with the skirt. Have to dress it up and put my touch on it you know. There won't be pattern involved so I can post a picture.
Last weekend we hit the Arizona Sea Life Aquarium. We are trying to find things to do this summer that will be fairly cool. It was a nice afternoon. It's not a real large aquarium. But they have done a nice job with it. I am posting pictures I took. They aren't the best as I took them on my cell phone and it's not what you call a great camera.
I do have one flower shot for you. It's my first Gardenia blossom. Wish I could share the smell.... Heavenly.........!!!
This just smells so wonderful. I love Gardenias
The Jelly fish are always so beautiful to see.
I loved this Starfish. I can see an idea for a doily here. I love lace in nature.
I have always been fascinated by Sea Horses.
And just on overall view of one of the tanks.
I was actually surprised at the pictures this cell phone took. Better than I expected.
But I was wishing I had brought my good camera with me.
Next time I will know.
