Just A Quick Update - May 10, 2016

I finally got everything that was finished posted to the mercantile's webshop (www.shop.originals-by-kay.com). Well, everything that I had photographs for. My goal for the future is to try not to procrastinate so much when it comes to adding stuff to the webshop.

There are still four items that need to be photographed. One of those, a black riding habit, I need to ship to a friend with a bigger sized mannequin. The second one is a three piece girl's outfit that needs a new bodice due to an accident with a pair of scissors.  Number three needs the bodice ironed and the last one just needs to be photographed and measured. They will have to wait a couple of days. I have to get three corsets finished.

In the meantime, here are some of the items I posted to the webshop today.

Have a great day!

Challenge Update - 4/27/2016

Sorry, I know it's late but here's the update. 

Waiting for the farrier this morning, I was working on my to do list for today & decided to go through my "challenge" list. Yeah, the one I had planned on finishing in March, except I hadn't planned on being sick for almost two weeks & had forgotten we needed to get the house clean for hosting the German exchange student. Anyway, I have gotten some stuff marked off that list since I started working on it in March. I started with 31 items. Eleven projects have been completed - 2 girl's dresses, 2 girl's bodices, 2 girl's skirts, 3 flannel petticoats, a riding habit skirt, and a rain paletot. That's just over 1/3 of the list done, considering everything going on in the last two months, I think that's pretty good. I'm still working on the list so there will be more. 

Maybe, I'll restart my challenge again in May. I'll have to see what else is on my sewing/knitting/crocheting schedule. 

Have a great day!
