Trying to Get Things Done

On May 21, I had to special order the fabric I need because they were out of it. They said it would be in in 2 weeks and that they would call me.

Yesterday, June 17 (4 weeks later) I hadn't gotten any calls so I went in to ask them what the heck they were doing over there with the fabric I'd paid for.

Well they had no idea where it was so they said they were going to get someone who would come in the next day to track it down.

Well he just called and said that the fabric that I bought had been discontinued.
BUT there was some in Massachusetts and it was on it's way.

It should be here in 10 business days.

I have no idea how long it will take me to make my garment with it, so... this is all stupid. Especially since I'd ordered it so early.

In other news, I'm working on the rest of my costume in the meantime...

Including my Pokeballs!

I was wondering how I was going to make these and attach them to a belt. They need to be light, and fairly round and perfect, easy to color / paint, and not fall off.

And then I saw online someone had made them out of wooden balls. 
So I went to Hobby Lobby and found the perfect sized balls with a flat side. So I bought myself some paint and superglue and won the day!

Superglue holds WELL
I got a little bit of superglue on my fingers, but the moral of this story is that if something bumps up against these, the buckle will break before these fall off.

Now I'm running out of things to work on without my fabric...
