On Monday I went to my friend's house after work and we both sewed on petticoats. It was fun :) My newest petti (a bit shorter than I wanted because I sillyly didn't buy enough fabric BUT I can make a ruffle for it and that will make it a bit longer) is also almost done - two hours work and only lacking a sewn hem (it's pinned). So much faster to machine sew straight seams hehehe.

Bit of a bad brain week. The but-whyyys are annoying, and nearly had me convinced to give up costuming entirely. So, pressing onwards! Take that you silly creatures!

In other news, hockey playoff fever has the city. On Tuesday or Wednesday I entered a contest to win entrance to a game watch party at the next home game, not expecting to win, but then I DID! The arena of course is sold out and is much too expensive to attend even a regular season game, nevermind getting a playoff ticket, so they've marked off a section of the main concourse and entrance, let a bunch of fans in (maybe they sell some tickets too) for standing room only, and show it on a big screen on the wall. It was INCREDIBLE. We rallied from a 3-1 defecit to tie it up at the end of the 3rd period, and then scored the winner late in overtime. Thank goodness it didn't go later, it was almost midnight, but of course I would have stayed! The crowd was wild, my throat hurt from screaming, my ears were ringing from all the acoustics (terrible! But awesome!), I was sore all over from standing on concrete floors for almost 4 hours, but it was SO worth it! As the streets flooded with happy fans, everyone was cheering and yelling and cars were honking, it was SO great. It's been 11 years since the last playoffs, and the city is super into it! (I know not everyone is, but the people who are really are. I was gonna take my cable box back but playoffs...)
