01:29 am - Message from Action Man: I've danced all I needed to dance; sordid details following
I had a post but it was pretty incoherent, and then safari choked on a webpage and I lost it. Short story brief, I finished the dress, got a lot of compliments on it, tore out the hem but only mildly and right at the end (and I was going to put it back in differently anyway), tore out the side waist but it's fine, all I have to do is put the stitching back in, need to redo the straps, sleeves, and underclothes (again, no surprise), and danced my feet off. I need a fan.

English country dance is all about repeating patterns and is delightful. I commented to my last partner that it was like Memory (the animated zefrank version, if you care) - I can do fantastically well the first time, and poorly indeed the second, and she said "you're a patterns person" and it was like yeah. I hadn't ever thought of it quite that way but it's completely true. So I can't specifically remember any of the dances, even though I had the first two or so down pretty pat and if I hadn't done all the others I'd probably still remember them.

I promise you, pictures soon.

Also, a longer, technical post tomorrow or Sunday, when I can brain about sewing again.
