I finished sewing peacock feathers to the peacock-feather top this morning. It’s beautiful. Blue-green silk, off-the-shoulder, with a three-pleated collar running around my shoulders, with peacock feathers down the center panel and a red AIDS ribbon at the top. Goes over a purple tutu completely covered in peacock feathers. I like it a lot.
I’m giving some consideration to the order in which I wear them. I don’t want to wear the nicest ones first, but neither do I want to leave them for the last. The orange tutu will be for Day One, the red tutu for Day Five (Red Dress Day), the rest is up in the air. My two favorites are the pink and the peacock tutus, so perhaps I’ll wear those on the longest days, or maybe the toughest ones. I dunno. I’m sure whatever day I wear them, they’ll be FABULOUS.
I still need to finish the orange top (and the turquoise roses that go with it), press the white top, and fix the elastic on the red tutu–other than that, I’m done! So it looks like Mike and I will get to go out on Thursday night after all. 🙂
I have one last training ride today (a very easy recovery spin to keep my legs moving) and that is IT until the ride! Which leaves me free to worry about packing and othersuch.
