Life at Home

Hi everyone, I hope you are all having a wonderful week. Max is doing extremely well. In fact, we're having a hard time getting him to relax, because he wants to play and run around the house. He started "toe touching", which is putting weight on the toe of the leg in question, which is a great improvement. His bodily functions are working in peak order, to be delicate :-). As for me, I'm very tired. I've spent the last four night downstairs with him on the floor, moving up to the couch last night. It's kind of like having a baby. I think tonight I will be able to sleep upstairs and just have the alarm set for when he takes his meds. We'll see how he's doing by this evening.
On a costuming note, my dress is almost finished. I just need to add the ruffles and make the silk sash. I'm heading to the fabric stores today, Joann's is having a sale on their home deco silks, I'm planning on starting a late 18th ccentury corset. I like my short stays, but they don't quite give the right shape under my chemise a la reine. So that's the next project to hopefully complete by November 15th, the day of the ball.
Thank you all for your prayers. God Bless and have a great week.
Love Lauren

I'm SO glad Max is doing so well! He looks perfectly pleased with himself in the picture in the post above this one, doesn't he? :)

I can't wait to see your dress! I want to make an 18th century corset too but have to wait til after the baby comes. I have the pattern and some linen stays half-put together from several years ago but alas, have grown too much to fit them anymore. :(
