|12:12 pm - Robes and a bit more.|
It appears I'll be trying to make my own robe in the next week or so. I need one, post-haste, and so it's time to give my sewing skills a shot, damnit.
Now, if only I knew how to sew.
Tina and I are chatting about invitations and house cleaning today over email. I think I'm with her, though: I'm not thinking about going to the Dublin Irish Festival in a couple weeks. It's too expensive to get in the doors and I never have enough fun to justify hanging out with a bunch of drunk wannabe-Irish people.
And wow, I just missed part of my lunch. I'll have to go a bit later. Good thing Joyce is taking a late lunch today.
My myrtle--real myrtle--is on the way. I'm quite excited about that. I might be able to raise Dude much faster than I expected.
Certain website projects are coming along nicely, but not quickly enough for me.
Ten days. Ten days is all I have. But I have faith that all will be in order.

Artful I am not. And I'm a tad taller than 60". . .
I have some patterns. I'm not at all worried. Sewing isn't a hard skill. It just takes practice.
Which will make any creation officially amusing.
How do you know Dude wants to be raised? Isn't that a little intrusive? hehee
I could pretend that it was important to me, but in this paradigm, it's really not.
Besides, how will I know unless I ask him?
Chickens and eggs :)
Tina has a sewing machine I may be able to borrow. Right now, that's the potential plan.
She's sexy like that.

You asked it! OMG you asked the question everyone wants to know but no one asked!
Of course it doesn't help much because I still don't know who Franklin Bailey is.

*grin* Yay. You're welcome. :)
You could always visit your 'friendly' ecclesiastical supply shop on the internet... they've got a variety of albs (hooded and not) that'd probably work quite well.
Not as cool as making your own robe or as inexpensive, but it's quick.
Yes, I've looked at those. Ecclesiastical supplies are generally over-the-top expensive, though, aren't they?
They can be. An alb runs from around $65 to $150 all the way up to $400 or so. It's a crazy racket.
Vows of poverty have never hurt business, I suppose.
I think it probably has a lot to do with the fact that it's rarely going to be the priest paying out-of-pocket for ritual attire. I imagine that the congregation or the national organizations would pay for it, at least in most cases.

There's stuff called "stitch witchery" and you just put it between the pieces of fabric you want to join and iron it. It won't last forever but it's good enough for one wearing and then you can go back and sew over it when you have time.
