09:28 pm: It's good to have projects
I've finished all my midterm exam obligations for the week. So far, I've been keeping myself occupied by sewing. I was feeling guilty about the piles and piles of fabric building up in my craft room, so I picked one of the yukata rolls I bought on sale in Kyoto, hauled my sewing machine to school, and got to work on a summer dress pattern I bought last year.

It's hard to sew a dress while working at a desk that's already occupied by a computer and bookcase.

Even so, I probably would have finished it by now, except that A) I forgot to buy a zipper, B) I played around for several hours on the internet looking up epic Warcraft loot, and C) I had to alter the pattern so the skirt panels would fit on the narrow yukata fabric, which was extremely tedious and also added lots more seams as I patchworked the strips together. Anyway, I've completed the skirt and bodice. Now I just have to attach them together, add the zipper and lining, and position the shoulder straps.

I would say that I could get the dress done tomorrow, except that I'm scheduled to go into Otsu to sumbit the paperwork to renew my visa. That's likely to eat up a good chunk of the morning.

Thanks! The weather's pretty windy and rainy today, so it won't be much fun walking to and from the station, but other than that there shouldn't be any problems.
