Today was rough. I woke up at 3 am from a horrific anxiety dream, sparked by the inspection I'm having today or tomorrow. It was so bad that I had to bury my head under the covers to open my eyes, I was really unsure of reality. Would it be the real world, or the dream? It was kind of like sleep paralysis, with 100% more hallucinations and 75% less paralysis. But when I did pull the covers down, the only thing I saw was my room, and my cat's butt right in front of my face. Phew. Unfortunately I couldn't get back to sleep until close to 6am, and then I had to feed and poke him, do some dishes, scoop his box... and to top it off, it was also time for a migraine! Hooray!
I decided not to go to dance class tonight since we were starting zills. My head was better, but not so much better that a room full of tiny cymbals would be an OK idea. So I took a nap with my cat instead.
I spent some time this afternoon looking at petticoats, since I really need to start from the ground up before I can work on the dress, and that means at least one petticoat. After I finished eating, I really couldn't put it off any longer, so I sat down and cut, marked, and then sewed the support straps for my hoop. Now I'm really at the point that I need to get hooping material before I can continue. The only other thing I can do is cut strips to make into casings. It's almost done!
