Weekly post

My life has been taken over with sewing. Between sewing for HRM and my Pelican, and me, and the Head Lady in Waiting, i am also sewing for LARPs. and knitting

the other thing that is taking up all my time is the 3Day walk. I still need to raise about 1500 dollars and it is going slow. and i do not like fundraising, even if it is to cure breast cancer. because cancer sucks. really. but it is going.
