It's Friday morning...

and we set sail - wait, that's a song. :lol: (Mermaid's Tale). It looks to be a beautiful day! Leading into a nice (but BUSY) weekend.

I need to figure out something to go under the valences - they're perfect, but they're too short to stand alone. I'm thinking brown or burgundy sheers, but I'm letting it percolate a bit. Got too much to do today to take the time to run to the store, so......

Irish Fest is this weekend. I think that the new bodice will NOT go - I can't see how it'll work, bathroom break wise. I'll have undies, bloomers, and 2 skirts; first up, I'm not sure it'll lace up over all that (plus the chemise; none of these are negotiable.), secondly....I think I need to break it in a bit more, to make sure I can spin in it. :sigh: Don't fret - I'll get a photo of it (and the underbust!) soon. I just...I don't think I can manage wearing it right now.

Underbust: SG laced it slightly looser this AM, and it's fine. It's not as long-waisted as the full corset (so privy trips should be OK), and I think I've figured out the girls. Today, I pretended it was garb - I "fluffed" while SG was lacing. The top is still slightly pushing into them, but it's a LOT more comfy than it was yesterday. (45 minutes so far. I'm looking to milk, then pull it off.)

On Tuesday, I pulled down the garb I wanted to wear...I ended up washing ALL my garb. I had NO idea I was such a clothes-horse......mice had gotten into the closet. :sigh: 4 loads of laundry later, everything is all clean and sweet-smelling, and we bought rubbermaid containers to keep it in. I need at least 2 more, but it's a start. I also need to hunt up some bodices - they're missing. :sigh:

Need to start prepping for school - laters!

Shabbat Shalom!

Just spent the last 2 hours prepping for NTIF. The wheel is dusted, polished, and is sporting a lovely new (TEAL!) driveband. I cleared off 3 bobbins, and my basket is packed and ready. ALL of our leather goods are cleaned and conditioned. The table is set (I try to get that done by 2, so I'm not rushing around later), and the challah is just about ready to braid. The chicken is, we're looking good!

The kids are both going garbed this year. Last June we bought Himself a kilt - it's not our tartan (any of them :lol:), but it'll do. I have 8 yards of tartan for him when he reaches full size - it's up to him whether he makes a "wee" kilt or wears it as a great kilt. Herself has 2 of my outgrown bodices, and she's tall enough now to wear my skirts (laced under the bodice, the waist doesn't matter.)

Looks to be a fun weekend - hope yours is as well!
