The next person who tells me global warming is a fake, and there's no canicule in France compare to [choose a place between Texas and Nigeria], and environnment is just fine, and ozone is just fine, and Kyoto treaty is shity, and blah blah vlah, I break his/her nose. Honest. I make a carnage, a bloodshed !!
I'm in Bretagne, right now. Bretagne is suppose to have the same clime as England. What do I say, England : Scotland !! Rain, rain, rain, grey skies, coldness, and furious black ocean.
Well well, I'm burn to the bones (first time in 26 years that I am sunburned in Bretagne, and it's really really bad, I should wear camouflage to go out, else people will thought that I'm a lobster gone human !), I sleep windows open, and I'm still sweating at 2 in the morning, and the north Atlantic ocean is as hot as the mediterranea (I'm surprised all the fishes are not yet dead).
Really, Simili-Scotland is no more what it used to be !
On other news, my young aunt having a bad disease no one as diagnosis correctly yet, she has to spent some time at the hospital. And as it's August, and August in France, is like a subburb of Mars (Life is dead, definitively), the parents couldn't find a nanny for the teeny weeny baby cousin, so, yes I'm going to baby-sit the anorexic baby for the next month, hurra !! My only decent T-shirt goes from black to yoghurt-white in just 10 hours, it tells a lot on what I'm going to live for the next month...
Anyway, I will have to improvise for sewing. I don't have any of my books, I have the minimum supplies, I don't have my corsets, but I have two places to buy fabrics !! : first I will finish hat 2 (1855 or something). Second, I'm only going to do a flounced 1845-55 skirt (I didn't tell you that I was doing a 1845s-55s founced dress ? Hats. It's all because of hats), because, well, impovising a fan front bodice without corset is, what, suicide ?
But, but, but... Please, I need someone to scan for me the page(s) on 1840s-50s flounced skirts in Hunnisett. It's not a pattern, it just gives the lenghts to use for the different skirting and the lenghts of the flounces (I will do three).
Oh, and I will try to begin my 1840s corded petticoat that I will wear under that dress. Insane, yes. I am strangely happy about that bit of insanity... It's been a year I told I will do it, and I just didn't even begin. Bad me. But now I have no choice :))
