Project Cyan is finally undergoing a major website redesign! Please bear with me as I get things sorted out and rearranged.  I'm excited to finally have a place to consolidate  my blogs, my costuming, my website design portfolio, and anything else I feel like putting up.  

I imported all my previous blogs from WordPress, and did quite a bit of customizing on the displays on this site, so I have to go back through the older blog entries and fix the pictures so everything looks consistent. I am sure this is going to take some time! But in the end, it's all so worth it, I love this new site and all of the new features. : )

I took a ballet class at a new studio, it so rocked.  I would have preferred a more beginning class, because it's been at least a year and a half since I've taken a class, but the only adult class that fits into my schedule is the intermediate class, and so...  I actually did much better than I would have thought. Thank god for muscle memory.  When the teacher called out tombe, pas de bourre, glissade, glissade, assemble... I just DID it. I mean, my brain was still trying to figure out how the hell the pas de bourre went, but my legs were already DOING it.  So bizzarre.

So, I've been on this Julia Child kick. For the uninitiated, JC's recipes are basically a heart attack waiting to happen.  Everything, regardless of what it is, requires at least half a pound of butter and 2 egg yolks.  Everything.  Well, maybe not everything.  I made Moelleux au Chocolate (little chocolate lava cakes); they called for a stick and a half of butter, 3 eggs, 6 oz of chocolate, sugar, and a small amount of flour.  Oh, and extra butter for the ramekins. I made 3 cakes.

I started dating someone a month ago. (and omg, I feel so funny having to come out of the closet as a  STRAIGHT girl, which is so bizarre in and of itself, but yes, I'm dating a HE.  It DOES happen, you know! Nothing to see here, move along...) He's a typical bachelor,  eating out all the time.  In his defense, he's pretty busy, and doesn't have time to cook.  But, still, Jack in the Box is not one of the four major food groups. So, I broke my usual I-won't-cook-for-anyone-rule and I made dinner for him one night, very early in our dating.  Like week two.  I know, props, right?

After having worked on it off and on for 5 months, it is finally finished. I still have to sew the eyelets, but it is wearable.  And, it turns out I don’t hate it as much as I thought I would, after spending all that time on it.  :)

finally got the sleeves done on the gown. I pulled the old linings out, replaced them with new velvet linings, pulled the velvet linings out, cut down the sleeve shell to bet fit the smaller velvet linings, and sewed the upper linings to the bodice lining. Whew!   I also made some repairs to the lining where I had adjusted the shoulder seams.
