lets try this again...
Thanks for all your well wishes. :> I had a really lovely time in Richmond. Bridget is completely moved out and finished for the semester. Yay, I get my best friend back for the summer! :> We celebrated with Cold Stone ice cream, a California Pizza Kitchen lunch and a lazy afternoon wondering around the mall. It was a really lovely day out too, which made it all perfect.

Once we got home, I started out by redoing the front waistband seeing if I could make that work. No such luck. There just isn’t enough fabric.

So on to plan “b”, which is to basically start from scratch and recut the slits. I got as far as taking out all my previous stitching and sewing up the old slits. I should have gotten further but I ended up making an emergency grocery store run for Mom and then got sucked into a movie B brought home from the library (bad B!). At least I have a blank slate for tomorrow.

I’m definitely dropping the shift, or I should say worrying about it next week. I’m still hoping to get both petticoats (including ruffles), a neckerchief and hat finished by Friday night though. Lets see… 3 days – plenty of time right? *rolls eyes* I should have a hair test with B sometime before Saturday morning too…

I'm glad yesterday rested you up! :) And I do hope that the whole petticoat issue irons itself out. Good luck on getting everything done!!
