6 days and a Tutu!

Only 6 full days between now and race day!
My sweet Mother spent a big part of today making me a tutu to wear during my race.  She was kind enough to take pictures of the tutu in process specifically so that I could share them with all of you.  Thanks Mom!

A couple of the colors she picked out - she's a trooper to work with tulle for me.  Apparently it creates LOTS of static to work with this much tulle.

I'm guessing this took a while... Such precision - the little white dots are pins. Thanks Mom!

And now to tie a bajillion knots...

Getting close!

The finished project on my brave younger brother.  He helped, and then he even modeled it so I could see it.
Rumor has it this little number will be in the mail tomorrow.  My mom is shipping it express from South Dakota to Oregon.  I'll be watching my mailbox with great anticipation! I can't wait to rock the Princess Marathon in this thing!  Woohoo!


  1. oh my gosh the static, you aren't kidding! I still find pieces of tulle sticking to EVERYTHING around this house!!
