All the pieces are cut out for the peasant blouse and the skirt. I have three evenings to sew and fit the blouse, the skirt and bodice for Aislyn to wear to the Banquet. I am a little stressed out!! :)
I usually respond one of two ways to stress generating projects:
1) I buckle down and work hard and the project gets done in the nick of time. This usually results in me being happy and quite pleased with myself. :)
2) I completely shut down. This reaction is instinctual and I often have to fight the urge to quit. I would rather walk away than endure the torture of pressure to complete something.
Aislyn has been reminding me sweetly that the banquet is coming up and wants to make sure that I have enough time to finish the dress. I have assured her that it will be done before Thursday evening.
So, tonight; tomorrow night and Thursday evening will be devoted to finishing the dress. I'm cringing... I would rather buy her a dress; except that I have no money. All the fabric I am using was given to me by various individuals... so, I must finish the dress.
