Home sick again and being boring - back on Monday.

The pleating technique?  Holy fluffy skirts, Batman!  It stands out as much as a cartridge pleated skirt, but has the bound waistband and even pleats of the pictures and the extant piece from the Czech Republic.  Pictures next week.

I'm working on adding the guards to the pink skirt right now, since I want to wear it to Storvik Novice.

The sewing is fine, but a bit painful, as I am still having issues from having corticosteroids injected into my elbows on Tuesday.  Either that, or I have Lyme Disease - I need to make another doctor appointment, which I so love doing, dammit.


Hey - 500~ friends? - you guys rock.  I'll be funny/interesting/informative Monday.  Until then, try not to kill and eat anyone.

Yeah, I've got a friend in that area. Trying to get a doctor's appointment is a huge PITA. Two weeks out for everything, and that's when it's something that won't really wait very well, like a UTI that's pretty well progressed.

Here's to your NOT having Lyme Disease, or at least having a very prompt appointment time if you *must* have it.

Oh, and I meant to ask this, but how exactly is this pleating working? Sewn twice, but not cartridge pleats? I'm kinda confused as my brain keeps throwing up the sewn pleats of modern kilts.

Never fear - I'll be posting explanations and pictures next week, when I get my camera back from the farm. :)

Bugger on the corticosteroid issues. I wish your pain problems were as easy as mine to solve -- I'd just send you a Getting Dressed Guide cover and it would take all your pain away!

Huzzah on the petticotes!

ARGH! Missed previous mention of new pleating technique. Linky please?

*hugs* Hope you feel better soon. Tea, dammit!

No links - but I'll be explaining with pictures next week.

I mention it a few entries back - in one of the recent ones that has the "sewing" tags, but I didn't really explain much about it, just that I was going to try it out. :)

So sorry you are having such pain. I am looking forward to pix of the petticoat pleats! Sounds interesting!

You just don't want us to kill and eat anyone 'cause you're afraid we won't save any bits to share with you when you get back. :-p Feel better, sweet, and we'll kill something fresh for you when you're feeling up to it.

when i got the corticosteriod shot in my elbow, it took about 3 days or so for the pain to go away...something about small area, large amount of viscous fluid. i would think that with your arm issues, the pain would be much worse, and much more prolonged.

sorry to hear it hurts so much. good luck...*gentle hugs*

*Burp* Sorry....

On a more serious note, I can't wait for pictures!

While I agree that your primary purpose in life is to exist for our entertainment, I think we can let this slide since you aren't feeling well: But Monday, you'd better have something REALLY brilliant to make up for it - like the cure for cancer or an unlimited energy source that runs on belly button lint. *chuckle*

Seriously though, hope you are feeling better soon and crossing fingers that Lyme’s Disease isn't on your dance card.

::hugs:: Feel Better!
I'll be eagerly awaiting the construction notes, I remember seeing your short note on the new technique, but I couldn't puzzle it out. *sigh.

I hope you feel better soon!

... I am learning far, far too much about making these sorts of things from you. I hope you're happy with what you've done.

FWIW, I got to explain the concept of Blackwork to a 14yo boy at tonight's A&S gathering, and he was genuinely very interested and impressed with it, and then spent a little while attempting his own very first embroidery project.
The youthlings will learn, they will!

I'll hold off on my petticoat-in-progress until I see your photos. I'm tremendously excited. You do inspiring work.
