Weekend Update

Everyday Adventures

Well, I didn’t get quite as much done this weekend as I had originally hoped, but I did get a fair amount done, just the same. I have two leine almost complete (down to cuffs, collars and hem) and the gowns out and ready for minor mending (and hemming up of the blue) in preparation for 20th year. The Spanish overdress is sewn and hemmed, I just need to finish embellishing the trim to go on the cuffs and neckline. The second garb workshop went well and the dying demo spawned an impromptu fiber-identification class. Mom and Andrew got back from up north and I went over and saw pictures of their day-trip to New York. Of course, I also collected my souvenirs 🙂 Mom got me a Friends T-shirt from the NBC studios building. From the other day trip to Amish country Mom got be a doll holding a quilt and Andrew got me a new bell for my collection. It proudly proclaims: I “heart” Intercourse (PA). How twisted is it that one of the main Amish towns in PA is named Intercourse??? I love it! The bell is already on the curio shelf, right between all my more sedate locals.

The scroll (for lack of a better term) still needs to have painting begun on it…but if I get the sewing done after dance tomorrow I can devote the rest of the week to illuminating. There’s also an ensemble practice this week and I’m really looking forward to it (I missed the last one because I was so behind on everything else). Also there is a metric butt-load of wooden beads waiting to be sprayed and strung. But I’ve got 2 weeks!
