Small Progress

The fourth pair of braes is machine sewn.

Something in excess of 350" of hand made bias-cut drawstring has been produced.

Chemise sleeves for Charlotte are in the  process of having their seams hand-finished so that I can move on to assembly.

Fabric for dresses for Charlotte that may or may not get cut has been pre-washed.

Neck hole diameter for Charlotte's garments has been determined (2.5" radius, if anyone cares.)

We also moved more rocks.  I swear the damn things are getting bigger.  I can sort of see that we've gotten a lot done, but realizing how many more there are to go is a bit discouraging.  Collapse )

Seriously - I need those two strapping young men to move rocks for me...

Note to self

Needing to work on a time sensitive major around-the-house project during the ramp up to Pennsic isn't really the best idea.

I have a very strong feeling that *none* of the woodworking projects are going to be done.  Not a one.  Sigh.

But we moved more big rocks today, and *that* project looks like it might be done in time to order the wood in a timely fashion this year.  That's important to me - more important than the Pennsic projects.  We'll figure those out.

So here's today's progress:

This is the rock that Bob just HAD to have.  He's such a damn boy sometimes - apparently he was feeling particularly manly when this one came out of the hole in the woods.
