Still alive. Who knew this summer would luck my butt? I reel like it's been one of the busiest and shortest on record. We start back to school in 2 1/2 weeks. I've got a Harry Potter birthday party to plan somewhere in there, as well as a few appointments with some new Drs. For E. I always hate the getting to know you sessions where you have to re-hash all your child's deficiencies. Oh well, gotta do what I gotta do.

I know I've missed a lot from you all, but am looking forward to going back and seeing what you've been up to!

On the sewing front, it's been way too quiet. Decided I was hating the squashed bust on my corset so am starting over from scratch. This way I can also fix the busk that I put in backwards. My new plan involves wrapping ky dress form in plastic wrap and packing tape and drawing on my seamlines. Then cutting the thing apart and taking the reduction out. We'll see....

[Error: unknown template qotd] You've got to be kidding me. Do I wish I was born in another time? I'm fairly certain I have lived in another time, probably several. It's really the only way I can explain my fascination with history. I'm pretty sure I lived in the classical period. Not sure if it was Greece or Rome. I tend to lean toward Greece, even though women were much more restricted, I am drawn to it.

Definitely the 16th cent. After all, this is the first period I decided to recreate. Perhaps I was the daughter of a Nobel in Queen Elizabeth's court. A scullery maid I was not!

Let's not forget the Georgian and Regency periods. Also the late Victorian.

As that's where my interest ends, I'm sure that's where my lives end up until this one. Who knows, I might have decided to try and reach Elysium?
