So, my cat got sick, then I got sick, too!!! I thought I could just stay home and use it as an excuse to get things done, but as these things usually do, turns out that I can’t really sit up for very long without feeling like my head is going to burst. So, I only got a little sewing done.
I was really hoping to make some headway in organizing the Mills event. I’d like to write-up bios of each “character”, have a quick facts notecard for each one, and also a page of current town events. These would each be mailed to the appropriate participants. Trouble is, I’m still lacking quite a bit of info on each character, and have nothing as far as town events are concerned. But I do have recipies, which I need to put up on the yahoogroup. Maybe tommorrow. And i still need to get over to Mills to help plot out the table set-up. But I’m not going to expose poor Terry to my disease! Guess it will have to wait another week. Then I can also ask about bios.
On the plus side, I’m wrapping up a few projects and kicking off the start of some others. Mom’s ballgown is done except for trim (goodness knows how many incarnations of trim will go on before she finds one she likes!) and a ribbon for the tucker. The coat for the man in Texas is in the draft stages. The corset that was too big is back for me to correct. Also got fabric for the new parasol that needs to be restored. Not exact match on colors, but I’m not complaining as I like the new stuff more! As always, dresses for Abraham’s lady in any spare time. And, gearing up for a museum visit in a few weekend has brought a new to reenacting lady over here for a private consult. (Getting her tuned into accuracy before she gets corrupted! MUU-Haww-Haww evil laugh!) I’m hoping I can lay out a good, yet affordable, game plan for her wardrobe based on her needs and impression. Feel pretty confident I can get her into a dress and the right underthings, but you never know about corsets!!
Well, that’s it for now!
