No Pennsic Pity here! No Sir!
- So folks -
We do a lot of TALKING about various A&S on here, and many of us
actually DO get some actual hands-on time on our various projects
over the course of a week, but, well, not *every* week.
So - For those of us not going to Pennsic, (which is probably most of
us, by choice, circumstance, or just plain distance), I hereby issue
the following mini-Challenge: Between now and Sunday, August 10th,
try to up your HANDS-ON time on the A&S project of your choice. If
you rarely actually pull out the needle and thread, do it at least
once each of the two weeks. If you bribe the universe for an hour,
just twice a week, try and find a third. If you do some every single
night after work, well, good for you, but still try and up it a bit
for just these two weeks.
Why? One of my favorite things about War is that I try to get to
hands-on classes; this way I can do something hands-on and create my
OWN learning experience in the process, even if I'm home, waiting to
go into labor!
Personally, I'm going to try and do some more flat-felling on my
brown linen dress, up from about 10 minutes in the last two weeks.
It is wearable now, but not done, by a long shot, and the house
situation is almost resolved, so I will try for at least 30 minutes
What are you thinking of working on, and how much, up from how much??

Anything associated with Embroidery is near and dear to my heart!
