This weekend was both stressful and the end of stress all in one. The Dress o' Doom (TM) got done enough to wear - still needs decoration and a headdress to be truly done, but fabric choice negated the 'gotta do it NOW!' factor - and was debuted at the Reenactor Fest IV Saturday ball. I'm hoping pictures appear from someone, as I was not exactly in a position to get my own (lack of camera being only one issue). I believe queenserenity42got a good one in the hotel bathroom, so the toiletry theme should be maintained ;D Massive kudos to her as well for lending me her French hood, as I got at least as many compliments on it as I did on the dress itself. Aside from caloric crises, the weekend was darn fun and may have netted us future historic endeavor gigs which I am *all* for. And I can now inhale, exhale, and buckle down to the more usual stress of making utilitarian Ren clothes for flechyr, trying to figure out how to make *him* a more real suit of clothes, finishing up the half-dozen existing projects, knitting my socks, knitting a new pair of glove/mittens, and working on the Plimith Plantation sample kits I got (lace and embroideriy, see http://www.plimoth.org/embroidery-blog/ for reference). Plus music, plus sword work, plus.... Yep, back to normal ::rolls eyes!:: Oy!
