almost done
My new, fits-like-it-was-made-for-me-because-it-was blue Viking dress is almost finished.  I just need to turn the hem, sew it down, and attach straps.  I can finish that tomorrow.

Tomorrow's agenda runs something like this:
  • Pick up shipping wrap at UHaul

  • Go to C's house for lunch and last-minute purple dress (re)fitting

  • Finish the blue dress 

  • Whip out some pants for Wolfie (these literally take longer to cut than to sew)

  • Pack

If I don't get all of the packing done on Thursday, it's not a disaster; I still have Friday.  Same for finishing the pants (one new pair would likely be sufficient, but I like to be thorough).

Part of why I was so upset last night was that I was supposed to be at C's house today at 12:30, and I knew that with the interruption last night I wouldn't have been ready.  Luckily she's the understanding sort (and flexible with her scheduling), so we rescheduled for Thursday.  I'm much more relaxed now, especially given the unbelievable luck I had making this dress!  I have an extra blank sketch book downstairs.  I really ought to start recording measurements and drawing scale drawings of patterns so I can reproduce the stuff I make.

And now, to bed, so I can get up and go to UHaul.  Whee.  ;-)

With our respective meltdowns recently, we haven't had much chance to say hello. Just wanted to say it sounds like you're doing better too, and things will work out, one way or another. Happy to hear the dress worked out so well!

Wanted to wish you a very happy honeymoon/Pennsic, hope you have a GREAT time. Don't sweat the small stuff, and I can't wait to hear all about it when you get back. Well, maybe not ALL about it, but ;) you know what I mean.

Good luck with everything! Take lots of pics, and have a great time :)

I'll try to remember! I almost never take pictures at Pennsic; I just forget.

melenka is trying to convince me to join her and the clan at Bristol Ren Faire this weekend... Tempting... Very tempting... If I go, I'll bring my camera so I can guilt you if you forget ;)

Ah, but they expect patrons to have cameras. I'm a participant at Pennsic; I get so busy doing, I don't have time for looking. I'm either in classes, doing camp chores, or shopping, at which time my hands are full of shiny pretty things! I suppose I could get Wolfie to take pictures of me doing dishes, if you like... ;-) (Lord knows my mom would love it; she doesn't think I know how.)

Have fun at Pennsic. I hope to get there one of these days.
