I forgot to attend my book club meeting last night and to re-certify another volunteer who only works Thursday evenings. Something about Thursdays makes it impossible for me to remember to attend appointments in the evening. I remember them until it’s time to go. Then I forget about them entirely. Sigh. I was really looking forward to talking about Pride and Prejudice, and now I have to wait another week before I can re-certify whosisface. Ah well.
I was caught up in a sewing project last night. Merkin and BratzBasher have secured spots as storytellers at the Renaissance Faire (woo hoo!), and they need costumes (d’oh!). Merkin found a cleric’s hooded tunic at the costume shop, but I’m making a dress for BB. It’s a sort of apple green bodice and skirt over a white muslin chemise and has a matching muffin cap (to hide her “modern” bangs and keep her hair off her neck) — or it will, at least, when I’m finished. I’ll take pictures, of course. I messed up a bit on the bodice. I was altering it to close in the back, rather than the front, and I accidentally made the front too wide. Sigh. I’m going to sew a decorative piece over the seam. All this has to be ready by the 21st of this month, so I guess I’d better shower and get to work.
