Back in the Saddle Again

I just got back from a week and a half long vacation to my uncle-in-law's cabin in Idaho. We drank, we fished, we drank, we hunted, and we drank. Six and a half cases of beer, four bottles of wine, and four or five bottles of tequila and whiskey later, my husband and I, his parents, and his aunt and uncle stumbled off the mountain. I bear the crown the of Fishing Queen, there is now a family feud involving gnomes and trunk nuts, and my husband learned how to butcher a deer.

Now that I'm back in California, I have some sewing to catch up on. Yesterday was spent doing mock-ups on Samifer; I did two but a third will need to be made. Crowley's bodice has its bias binding, and the center panel has been whip stitched in place on one side. Hooks and eyes need to be added to the other side, and sleeves need to be mocked up for her visit this weekend. I also am going to try to get half the boning in, so I can check placement, but I'm working seasonal again this year so I have other things taking up my time.

Right now it's time to make a sandwich before I have to leave for work. Not panicking yet, but I am running out of time.
