We now have exactly three weeks before we hope to depart for Pennsic. And between the three of us, we each have maybe 1-2 outfits appropriate for camping.
Whoooop! Whoooop! Whoooop! (those would be emergency sirens!)
It’s time to crackdown and make our garb! So I’m setting a goal for myself — one piece of garb a day for the next three weeks. I’ve even made myself a little schedule…
|Nothing! Full day of mundane stuff.||No sewing — took a break and made benches|
|No sewing — took break and stained benches||Plum/Black Overdress (OR a Kirtle instead … still deciding)||Tunic? Smock? Understuff?|
|Cloaks (maybe), hems||Whatever else I didn’t finish||DEPART FOR PENNSIC!|
There we go…. if I meet my goal each day, I will have enough garb for the three of us for Pennsic! I think this is doable — I’ve done each of these things in one day before, and I certainly didn’t spend all day doing them (which is good, as I’ve got my day job to do, too!) If I am good, I will move a little ahead in my schedule and buy myself some extra time so I’m not sewing sleeves the night before we leave.
Can I actually do it? Well, as I’m big on goals and rewards, here’s my plan. Each day I complete my goal, I’ll cross it out on the chart above and post about it on Facebook and/or here on my blog, to keep myself honest. And if I complete my goal, my reward is some truly awesome thing from a Pennsic merchant — not sure what I’d get yet, as I need to see what they are selling, but I’ll know when I see it.
So, here we go … today’s goal: a smock for me made of tissue linen (it’s already prewashed and ready for cutting).
