I realize I've been wasting a lot of time...

That's what time is for.... wasting ;)

I've been beading away (although it doesn't show in my progress) -- I've been distracted with family matters my kids and my mom.  I surely am the sandwich generation.

I will soon be an empty nester with both girls away at school, so I will be having a lot of time to work on my dolls, their wardrobes, and my blog.

I went to the library yesterday and got a book I've been wanting for a long time

This book has been a thorn in my side.  I've ordered it through Amazon twice and through Barnes and Noble.  No luck.  Well, I finally got to see the book and as the title doesn't suggest, this is not a book of the collections meaning the actually runway fashions.  It is more a rather dull explanation of the types of buttons used by Coco, the fact that she was fascinated with the flower (on the cover) the camellia, it talks about her perfume, Chanel #5.   Yes, it is a lovely book... however, it is not what I had envisioned.  I think there are more photos of Chanel jewelry, makeup and perfume, than fashions... I don't think I'm exaggerating (that much) here.  I was hoping for a comprehensive look at the collection from Coco's time till now.  That book has yet to be written, perhaps after Karl's reign, someone will.

So, no more on the "book review".

I've finished the applique on the coral top....  It's been so long.  I should be finished all together by tomorrow or Monday!  Photos for sure.
