I am quite pleased with how the volunteer t-shirt reconstruction turned out. Do note the sassy v-neck; I am quite pleased with that. And the part of which I am most proud is that I managed to sew up the gaping armpit holes without making the shirt all Frankensteiny and lumpy.
I used a little engineering to make a straight line down the side seams from where I was sewing up the armpit holes. And then I made certain I sewed up those new seams real good, even a couple of extra times, because the last thing I need is for the girls to come busting through a failed seam. There is an alarming amount of pressure being held back by a few threads. Nobody needs to see my shabby bra.
We had our orientation meeting at the record tent tonight. I was really happy to see that so many of us who worked the floor last year have returned. It was lovely to see all those little faces again, and I cannot wait for the folk festival to begin. One more sleep!
My work schedule is quite decent: 3-8 tomorrow, with an hour break at 5, 10-5 Saturday (break at 11:30) and 5-11 Sunday at the mainstage satellite tent, so I will be able to watch the mainstage concert from work that evening. Bonus.
Sadly, I won't be able to catch the Weakerthans' mainstage show, but we all have to make sacrifices for the common good. I should be able to catch one of their workshops during my break on Saturday.
Please drop by over the weekend for updates on the music, the atmosphere, the food, the encounters, and the surreal image of all those volunteers swanning about in our Hari Krishna-inspired t-shirts.
We will be challenging the very yellowness of the lilies in my garden.
