The Weekend

The weekend was way too short. This working 6 days a week is stupid. I can't really complain because hubby is working 7. Still, I managed to clean up the kitchen, do the laundry, make 4 chainmail/scale flowers and 1 candle skirt. I also modified my Polaris costume so it fits my shoulders without shoulder pads. My belly is too big, so the shoulders were hanging half way to my elbows. A couple of tucks worked. It's not super pretty, but it is functional and doesn't completely destroy the look of the costume.

I also finished a bracelet for a friend. It looks marvelous.

I will post pictures as soon as I recharge my camera battery.

I forgot to add that I broke a toe last week (9th time, for those keeping track) and injured the middle finger on my right hand about 3 weeks ago (bashed the knuckle badly). As nothing was displaced in either case, I just carried on and took pain killers. (I'm either one tough broad or I'm a martyr.) The blisters and calluses from making chainmaille might do me in though. I swear I hate working in stainless steel. Aluminum and copper are much softer. Oh, and my pliers slipped and jabbed my hand while working with the stainless; that might account for my hatred of it.
