Another UFO, but it wasn't my fault!!???

Okay, okay, my fault - I made the sleeves to the captain hook shirt from the Spring 2006, knit.1 magazine (I know, okay -- 2 years ago) Gheesh, but could not find the "right" shirt to put it on. Dang it all. Really silly since the sleeves made up really quick and easily. Very pretty bullion stitch.

Then totally by a fluke a shirt that I bought in a stack of other regular shirts turned out to have the perfect length sleeves to attach these too. (It only took 2 years - so what??) I am in the process of pinning and getting ready to drag out the sewing machine and put them in their place once and for all. I also need to hunt down my ribbons to weave ribbon in the row around the elbow attachment when I finish sewing them down.

Maybe I can post a picture of the finished captain hook sleeves by Tuesday or Wednesday (of this year) haha. Joke - funny!

Finish This! NOW, already - Gheesh!

I have to get these finished. They are officially UFO's (UnFinished Object). Yes, it's been THAT long since I had started these back when I did the original corset. Now I must decide if I am going to make more corsets (which I have had numerous requests for a pattern to and create a corset AND a pattern) or just turn them into bikini/halter tops.

Okay, okay . . . I know . . I am seriously behind in posting. I had got a second treasury on Etsy on June 10th totally devoted to, what else, Dragonflys! There were so many to choose from. The watercolor notecards were just beautiful. Anyways, here it is even though it is long over:

Okay - the poll is over regarding my avatar for Etsy. Drumroll - the Green Dragonfly received 50% of the vote, so therefore due to the popular vote (or possibly until they sell) they will be the face of my shop!

Thanks to those who posted a vote!
