A moment to catch up

Remember what I said about the whirlwind?  No?  I have felt like I have lived in a whirlwind since I got a role in the Renaissance Festival.  I am taking a moment to catch my breath, and catch up on my blog.  Speaking of, I may start posting about Ren Fest, because quite honestly, it is a HUGE chunk of my time.

But I am grateful that it is keeping me busy and occupied.  It takes so much of my thought processes, that I don’t have as much time to mourn my father.

I have had multiple fittings with my seamstress.  She is doing a most excellent job making sure that my dress fits me correctly, and the fabrics go so well together.  Would you like to see a picture?  Maybe just a teaser.

I am very grateful for the people I have been working with.  They are all extremely supportive and funny and kind and it just makes everything so much easier.  (508)  I have been given multitudes of compliments.  (509)  I have been able to help others.  (510)  It has just been a wonderful experience so far, even if I have been very busy.

I really need to go.  I’m getting very sleepy, and tomorrow is a busy day.  We have to finish getting the girls ready for camp, and I have to finish costume parts for Saturday, which is my first parade.  Yay!  I hope my feet and legs make it.

Have a blessed evening, and good night.

Hugs,
Melinda

  1. This peek at your dress made me happy! Tudor-era England is my jam and your costume brings to mind so many lovely gowns I’ve seen in books. Hope you’re having a blast!
