Alabama Chanin Beaded Dress - One Panel Down!

Thank you, Jesus, I finished the first panel last night! Here's how it looks on my dress form, but that blue cover I made the form throws everything off...as does my crappy lighting...


So here it is on me, and I'm sure my clothes don't throw anything off. Can't you just picture it? I even put a heel on, but Lucas cut it off in the pic. I didn't bead the very bottom inch because I may need to shorten it - we'll see.


One Lucas-ism I meant to write down before I get back to beading that second panel. We went to an Eagle Court of Honor for one of Drew's friends (we'll call him John) in the Troop, and Lucas feels fairly close to him, so he was sad that he won't get to see him at Troop meetings much longer. Dean and I were also talking about how Drew will be a senior next year, and then gone. Lucas said, "I'm feeling really sad because everybody I'm close to is leaving: John, Drew, Seth Meyers..."

Pam, don't hold your breath too long for the final reveal!

Becky, I nearly did a spit-take, too. My kids watch too much TV, apparently.

Oh - good idea! I'm actually close to finishing the second panel, thanks to the ice storm. My fingertips are getting a little holey.....
