The Serenity coat

While I sit in my hotel room trying not to die from anxiety about my replacement passport that has to arrive by noon tomorrow or I may not be able to make my trip, I've been finishing the Serenity coat.




The back. Still needs a few stitches, but it's mostly finished. Leaves on the wind, see, and the beadwork.


And a little firefly.


The front, with some of the lining.



But I'm pretty happy with the way it's turned out.

All together now: everyone vividly imagine Nathan trying it on!

I shall swan about London in it. And, I'm sure, look ridiculously out of place. But hey. I'm about to turn 50. I can do whatever the hell I want, right?

Right?

Sorry. I'm fixated.

I am a leaf on the wind. Watch how I

Hee! I shouldn't laugh. It's a tribute.

Thanks! I'm sort of looking forward to showing it off at Starfury. How geeky is that?

omg! that is fucking awesome! i love the leaves, the firefly...the lining!

*jealous*

*squeezing my eyes shut and wishing really hard for nathan to wear it*

*also, sean*

*maybe one, right after the other or maybe draped over both their shoulders as they stand right next to each other, nathan's arm around sean's waist and vice versa*

*flails*

*faints*

I'm sure I've said it before, but just let me say it again: I like the way you think, girl.

That's a work of art. My God.

My God...it's just...I don't even have words...

It turned out beautifully. I am in awe.

Thanks. I've been fiddling with it for so long I've lost all perspective. I'm glad you like it. I promised str8ontilmornin that I'd come by the bakery and show it to him, but I guess that'll have to wait till after the trip.

I haven't forgotten, though. Because the trade was ciabatta and herb butter.

That is gorgeous. I love the leaves, in particular.

Thanks! The leaves do seem to balance that huge honkin' medallion of beadwork, don't they?

Absolutely spectacular!

Thank you. It's pretty damned showy all right.

Beautiful and unique, and repays all your effort.

Thank you. It's been a fun and crazy project. I think there's been less planning in this than in any other big textile/bead project I've ever done. Seems to have worked out okay.

That's amazing! Details, devils or no, this is a work of art! Look forward to seeing you at the bakery after your trip.

That is GAWjuss. I love the tiny firefly.

Thanks! I like the firefly too--even though, as the fabric-store employee pointed out, it's actually a bee.

Oh well. I'll sew a shiny gold bead to its ass-end and insist on its being a firefly.

Very very very shiny!

Literally, for sure. In the Joss sense--well, I hope so!

Gorgeous!

Take lots of photos of you in it, and anyone else who tries it on.

I'll do my best.

I'm in England now! Yay!
