More Pennsic

As of lately, I have been changing my outlook from "Holy cow! Look at all the stuff that I still need to do!" to "Hey, look at what I have already accomplished."

This doesn't erase the fact that I still have a buttload of stuff to do, but it really lowers the level of stress as I feel good about what I have managed to finish.

In that note, I have almost given up on sewing anything else for Pennsic. However, here are my accomplishments so far:

Monday: Shopped for our new camp kitchen, and purchased it. Did lots of laundry.

Tuesday: Worked late so I could make progress on the Neverending Project so I can go to Pennsic, and shopped for the ingredients for Sunday dinner at camp. Did more laundry and put clothes away.

Wednesday: Cooked the picadillo for FFG's Sunday dinner, packaged it and put it in the freezer. Put together the new chiton and figured out how to cut it so it will fit properly. (It's a nifty little trick, taking into consideration that the whole thing is a tube.) Did more laundry.

Tonight I will deliver the kitchen tent to Seamus, and will make a valiant attempt to finish the chiton. I will also try to fix the sleeves on Carlos' tunics. If I am lucky, I will cut an abayah for him, but I won't be killing myself. And do more laundry.

I am also concerned about Carlos flying back home from Ireland tomorrow. I do hope that he makes it without much trouble and that his flight doesn't get cancelled. I am also concerned for Zada, who was supposed to arrive today at Pittsburg Airport from Naples.


At any rate, better for them both to be safe.
