You know you are getting crispy when . . .

You know you are getting crispy when you are looking forward to doing laundry.

I did a lot of laundry yesterday.

Mounds and mounds of it.

It is amazing how much of the stuff can pile up when you are not spending enough time at home . . .


Pennsic prep continues. I have finished ballistabob's new blue doublet (with sleeves!), and he looks yummy.

Rawr!!!!

I have been debating whether or not I have time to make another summer gathered kirtle for Pennsic or simply bring the pink one and the other stuff I already have, in order to start drafting my Fall wardrobe.

Decisions, decisions, decisions . . .

And while on that subject:

"Forgive me Father for I have serged. Yes, I admit to cutting a chemise for the upcoming War and serging the edges. I am also planning on machine-stitching it instead of hand-sewing it, but I do hope that the lack of time before War will be taken as an extenuating circumstance.

"As a penance, I am planning on watching endless reruns of 'A Knight's Tale' until I scream. Or at least until someone screams. I am not particular.

"I do hope that this will be sufficient to wash my sin.

"Your repentant daughter,

"Belphoebe"

And now, back to the trenches.

I admit to serging and then turning a french seam over the serge. Don't have to cut it down and worry about loose bits of threads. Handy that serger...

*furtive look* I've been thinking about serging the seams of my linen dresses. I'm so ashamed.

Not a problem. We can watch reruns of "A Knight's Tale" together and atone for our sins :-D

At least I can be perfectly secure in the knowledge that you will not be entering a serged garment in KA&S as a "handsewn garment."

Seriously.
