And So a New Week Begins
No new laptop yet! Despite what their website indicated, Sam’s Club only had my chosen model in pink – ugh! Best Buy had it in standard grey, but only in their “pre-set-up” format, which means that they take care of making a recovery disk and clearing all the trial software from the machine for you – to the tune of and additional $99! No thanks! So, I had to order a machine that won’t be in until next Monday. Luckily, my old-old laptop still works, so at least I can email and do basic stuff.
On the plus side, this leaves me lots of time to attack sewing projects! Today, I laid out the pattern pieces for a new lightweight cotehardie. I ordered 8 yards of the fabric, so there is enough left over to make a new undertunic for the Hubs. I also have pieces to make additional Bocksten tunics for him and a 12th-century underdress for me. We’ll see how much I get done.
3 weeks to Pennsic!
