when you don't know what to do...
do the next thing
ack. phblthfft.
So here I am again, up way too late as usual, and me with a list of things to do tomorrow as long as your arm. If only Walmart had a copy center, I could get most of it done in one go. But I don't want to drive all the way to the north end of Salem tomorrow.

I have to...

  1. find the hardcopy of my spinning handout
  2. make copies
  3. get hand sewing needles and edge binding at Joann Fabrics
  4. buy meat pies so we have some for dinner and I have some for lunch tomorrow
  5. tidy the back seat of my car (I'm taking my spinning wheel so I have something to do in the afternoon)
  6. make spindles
  7. bag the fiber I'm giving out
    and if there's time
  8. hem my dress
  9. braid and affix straps
  10. drop the hem of my shift

Then I have to get out of the house by 7 or so so as to be at Novice Schola in time to check in, change, and get ready for class (I'm teaching during "first period," as t'were, starting at 10). As usual for events I teach at, the one class I'd like to take most is opposite mine -- it's a handsewing class that goes beyond the basic running stitch and delves into sewing with wool and linen threads and stuff like that. I know the teacher, though, and will probably sit in on another of her classes, so I'll try to get a handout from her.

In my efforts to get more organized, I'm considering filing systems (there is continuity here, I swear). I think I'm going to get (a) binder(s) with page sleeves to hold things like left-over handouts for classes I teach, directions to various sites (since events we like are often held in the same place every year), pattern layouts* and handouts I get at classes I attend. Then I'll have a traveling binder, where I put all this stuff to go with me, and voila -- organization. That's my theory, anyway. It's a nice little dream...

I need to get to bed, so I can get up and do all this in the morning...

*I never use paper patterns; I always use layouts with measurements marked on them and layout garments using chalk and a ruler.

i feel: tired tired

2 trips or shoot the rapids

I wish I was going!

Have lots of fun, drive safe, and write a BIG long entry when you get back.
