Not a very productive day. I dug out the 1895 taffetas blouse and fiddled with the front pleats until I got something satisfying. It's not perfect, but it isn't too bulky and looks reasonably good. Not much else got accomplished - I had to run some errands and spend half an hour cleaning my workspace. The cat managed to puke on my new sewing machine feet AND inside a box of pins. Cats make life sooo much more interesting.
We ate at Lady Darkstone's, and the kids had fun in the garden while we chatted and drank tea. The only downside were the two hours stuck in traffic, instead of the usual 40 minutes. I feel drained and cranky now. I think I am going to start Christmas shopping to cheer me up. Or maybe I'll just crash in bed early.
