This project has been quite the adventure! There were days when I was convinced it would never end. And while everything did not go exactly according to plan, I am so, so pleased with the final result!
The gala was fabulous.
And the concert (which I attended on Sunday) was magnificent. Rachmaninoff’s Piano Concerto No. 2 is one of my favorite symphonic pieces, and hearing it in person again was so very special. Bravo, Marin Symphony!
The sewing room and living room have not quite recovered, but things are slowly getting put away, and happily, my fingertips are on the mend. But I am sure that I will be finding amethyst colored beads here and there for months to come!
Thank you for sharing this journey with me, and for all of your incredibly supportive comments!
I did attempt to keep track of my hours on this project, so I will have to add everything up – but that is for another day . . .
And a huge thank you to Britex for supplying the fabric - because my vision of this dress certainly would not have been possible without it! Fabulous fabric is oh so important for a successful project!
