  For some reason, I'm having a hard time working up the will to finnish these blasted stays.  I'm almost finnished.  I have a few more eyelets to sew, and the binding.  I also need to cut and tip the boning.  Maybe that is what the problem is.  I really detest cutting boning.  I'm always worried the wheel I use will break an send shards hurtling through the air to wreak havoc on my person!  Guess I'll just have to bite the bullet and get it done.
I plan on settling down with the eyelets to watch the third installment of  "The Complete Jane Austin".  Tonight it's "Mansfield Park". http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/mansfieldpark/index.html  
I really do need to finnish these soon so I can drape the Archery Dress over them.  Did I mention that I love draping?
I tried it for the first time on thursday, and it is so much more satisfying than flat pattern!  I can't wait till my dress form comes in, so I can practice at home.

Progress!

I have finally made some progress on the short stays.  The bust gussets are in on all layers, and each layer is stiched.   I decided when doing the mock up that the gussets really needed to be put in by hand to look good.  As I am slow at hand sewing this took a while.  All that is left to do is baste all the layers together, insert boning, and bind.  Yay!  I should have it  done before the dress form arrives.  I better have it done, as the form won't be here for about three weeks, and that would mean I was way to lazy.  
I don't forsee much work being done tonight because PBS is continuing their "Complete Jane Austin" series with "Northanger Abby". http://www.pbs.org/wgbh/masterpiece/?campaign=pbshomefeatures_1_masterpiecetheatrebrthecompletejaneausten_2008-01-20  Needless to say, neither my husband or sewing machine will be seeing much of me tonight!
