I am officially DONE with Dress U sewing. Not because I finished everything mind you, but I reached that point where my body just said stop. As I'm sure I've whined about too many times for y'all, I'm damaged and unfortunately passed my warranty period. The last few weeks of constant sewing has inflammed my lovely tendonitis and carpal tunnel (I am an epic concoction of all that is wrong with appendages). I've keep pushing and ignoring the pain, I can go a fair distance. It starts in my elbows and gradually spreads all through my arms. If you touch my elbows today I'll probably scream at you, but worse than that when the inner pressure reaches up into the back of my neck and shoulders I develop migraine like symptoms. And when today's  dinner sent the bile surging forward and I was relegated to flat coke and crackers I realized it was time to stop. If I'm not careful I won't enjoy a second of Dress U, so it's time to step away. Yes I haven't finished everything. I've done no decoration to the purple Victorian or boning put in the bodice, my titanic sash isn't sewn on, and I only realized an hour ago I never got around to making a regency petticoat. But I figure 99% of the people there will have at least one thing they didn't get around to finishing. I'll fix what I can with safety pins, have a wrinkled bodice and generally just do the best I can with accessories to hide it all.

So tonight I laid on the couch with a heating pad and a large dose of ibuprofen and made my packing list. HOLY COW it's a good thing I'm driving not flying!

I'm very sore. Lots of typing makes Robin's Elbows Go Yowza! But it will be worth it soon.

Rob is incredibly engrossed the in the Flyers game that just went into overtime. He keeps scaring the Chinchillas with his whooping, clapping and loud yells of "Come ON"

I heard this song on my way up to work yesterday and it was in my head all day. It's so morbid, my High School self would have loooved it's deep dark emoness. But it's really beautiful. Then I looked it up on youtube and it had an entirely different meaning and gave me an intense desire to re-read Anne of Green gables. Whoever designed this video was a big Anne of Green Gables fan.




When I was younger, okay I never outgrew it, I wanted to be Anne of Green Gables. My middle name is Anne. (WITH an "e"), she had red hair which I would have killed for, she was beautiful, she was smart, and she had that quality that made everyone notice when she walked into a room. 

And the Flyers just won. Momo is cowering in his house. At least Rob is grinning ear to ear.

It takes a special kind of person to decide to make a petticoat involving wool batting, wool backing and silk in June when the forcast is for 80's for the forseable future....

And in more frustrating news why is it just when I get going with a project my tendonitis says "oh you're having fun are you and making progress? well SUCK IT BITCH! NO MORE FOR YOU!  *sigh* I really want to start quilting! It's in the hoop ready to go...bah
