Not much to update. I started pleating the ruffle of the petticoat Sunday night. It was very discouraging actually. Now I know why I’ve never box-pleated anything - it’s going to take me like ten years to pleat that thing! *sigh* I didn’t get too far with it, about a foot. I’m thinking that I may not even bother. I really loke teh look of box-pleating but it’s a lot of work for an under petticoat that will never be seen. I’m thinking maybe I should just gather it, although I really don’t like the look of gathering. Of course I’m not sure this wretched fabric will actually gather. *grrrr*
Today was supposed to be the day I cut out the next round of sewing projects. On the list was the shift toile, gown toile, and possibly an everyday blazer toile. I got as far as scanning and enlarging the gown patterns and doing my preliminary shift construction reading before I stopped for the day.
I was hit with a whopping headache this morning. Again! It’s the 4th or 5th headache in 6 days. I don't understand why they have popped up all of a sudden and have been rather bad sinus related ones too. I usually don't get too many of those. I'm hoping they are just weather related and will pass soon.
Today’s malady was particularly bad though. Honestly, I don’t think I’ve had a headache this bad in 5 or 6 years. I took a full dose of Excedrin migraine, which did pretty much nothing. Not good at all. So I grabbed a cool gel eye-mask from the ‘fridge, drew the blinds and crawled into bed. I listened to ROTK (audio book) for a little while then just napped. I got up 3 hours later still with the headache. It was better, but it was still definitely there, with the aching face and light sensitivity and everything. *sigh* floorlamps - I can’t imagine having these bad headaches as often as you do… I really do feel your pain! Bless your little pea pick'n heart! *wobbly smile*
Since then I’ve had dinner, watched a frivolous movie and checked the old LJ. I still have the headache. It’s getting worse as I stare at this blue-eyed monster so I should probably sign off. I’m going to take some more meds and crawl into bed again. I’m really hoping the aching will be gone by morning. One day of this is enough. Okay, enough whining… I’m off to bed. Thanks for …umm listening I guess. :>
