Setbacks on the sewing project lead me to believe that I won't have it done in time for the event on Saturday, so in the words of Jack Burton, "fuck it!". I'll finish it up within the next couple of weeks and not stress any more.

Lessons learned on this:

Trying to start the project 1 month before the event is usually a good idea, but for the next few years, I think I'm going to have to start them 2+ months before the event to account for sick children, sick parents who were infected by said sick children, and any other random wackyness that happens. Considering how often our weekends get eaten up by the baby/parenting schtuff, it isn't a wonder that coupled with the flooding, this never got finished, especially with the issue with the garment I ran into last night.

As an added bonus, this give me more time to work on work :-/ The project that I've been trying to work on all week is due tomorrow and now that I'm actually making progress, I'm running into issues with the billing software we're using, so what should have been about a 2 hour job is looking like it will take me another 3 hours to reconcile. :-/ x 2. Looks like another late night for me. But at least I can duck out early tomorrow. Yay for being an hourly employee or something.

I'm so looking forward to the event on Saturday. I don't care if I have to fight corn and other vegetables for 7 hours straight followed by 6 hours of GRP about laws we should enact as the student body; the escapism will do me some good.

I mean a really real lot.

For the record, I am filled with hate for Period Patterns.

That is all.

Dear Casey Gorden and Coryn Weigle,

I truly do appreciate all the effort you put into putting together Period Patterns no 43 - the historical details contained within the packet along with the patterns themselves and the fact that you provide the user with patterns for 11 distinct garments makes me all sorts of happy. I am, however, inclined to curse you for going with some of the most asinine pattern layouts I've ever seen. I get that you wanted to save space/trees/whatever, but seriously, what the hell were you thinking when you decided to combine the pattern pieces for the front/back and arms of the cioppa?


By Grabthar's hammer, by the Suns of Wovan, you shall be avenged! I shall finish this project despite this shortcoming!
