I’m moving as fast as my baby laden bod can carry me to get ready for Crown List next week. Bambi and I are going together to the big SCA event where the next King is determined. I haven’t said much about the SCA here in, oh, EVER since I’ve not been super involved since before the girls were born. Now I have the need to get things in my life back around to MY interest. Having a job and a little income helps me do that. Also, my good friend Chuck is in the competition this time around, and if I were a betting woman, I’d bet on HIM to win it big. Hence, all the preparations. (I’ve appointed myself the head of Chuck’s Cheering Committee. Some organizations have steering committees, Chuck’s got a Cheering Committee. I’ve make a few table decorations and whatnots for his field-side pavilion and I’m making hospitality area behind his tent… THIS should be fun. )
In my excitement of getting re-involved, I’ve been sewing a new dress. Viking Style. I’ve made these before, so I’m no novice, but I got to trying to cut out the pieces of the over dress last night at 10 pm. Guess who forgot the underlying maxim of dressmakers and carpenters everwhere? I failed to “measure twice and cut once,” and now, 6 days before the event where I NEED that dress, I have to run out and buy MORE fabric.
I hate when my haste makes waste…
Nevertheless, I am having a high time planning and shopping and cooking and painting… I’ll take some pictures next weekend and post them here.
In other news, Eleanor got a singing potty from Bambi yesterday. I have to say this may be the most annoying invention of all time, but Elly sure loves it. She says “I want da muse-ket potty! Muse-ket!” I love when she say music… Has she peed in it? Nope.
