Oh brother do I have a list! Put one together earlier this week, then kept thinking of things to add, and add, and add. You see, I am a handicraft junkie, especially historic handicrafts. Nothing I like better than trolling through books, craft shows or the internet looking for a really cool project someone has done or a new historical tidbit about some (probably) very esoteric bit of textile history. I always have a new technique or project I want to do, lots of them, to many of them.

So I have a plan for the weekend, hope it goes smoothly!

And what a dreary one it is! I had hoped to be able to go out to faire yesterday on Columbus Day. When the weather is nice I like the afternoon of Columbus Day to stroll the faire as it is usually cool, the leaves have started to turn, and there are few crowds. I really want to catch the chess match and the final scenes at the gallows. It was not to be this year however as with the rain it was just too slick for my footing right now and the cold went right to the hip. I'm keeping my fingers crossed for this saturday.

One weekend to go and I still have some sewing projects on the 'to do' list. Managed to get Angelbedwell's bodice done for saturday, still have another to finish but that is for a wedding the weeekend after faire, bride is coming over for a fitting on friday. It is projects like these that remind me how spoiled I get sewing for DH, when I need to check a fitting I can just yell :)! Just a couple of small projects to do for him that he didn't want until the last weekend, then it will be time to clean out the sewing table of rennfaire fabrics and start getting ready to help LR with costumes for her medieval feast in December. T-tunics! I can do those in my sleep :).

And I got the discouraging news Sunday that the last minute project I did the friday night before faire opened, was delivered to PB saturday morning, who passed it on to the person that the request originated with, who promptly lost it. Sigh. PB, bless her, had not wanted to tell me as she knew I worked it up at the last minute for her, so she scrambled the next week to make another as best she could.
