Last night we, as usual, had friends round to play. R and I both enjoy Dungeons and Dragons, and in fact, that's where we got to know each other 4 years ago. At the moment we're playing Earthdawn. It's good in many ways, but lots of it's goodness is that they have only known us as us. None of them have known He-Ex and me, nor She-Ex and R, as couples, just R and I as the smiley people we are. That's good, because it means there are no comparisons, no need to drag up the past, no need for any of it, just an acceptance of us, of the fact that we do have a past, of the fact that it doesn't matter how crucial a game it is, if BG calls the world can wait, and that the AC loves R with reasons, as opposed to genetics, as one of them put it one day.
So anyway, we're sat playing last night, and I'm sewing. 3 years ago (amazing that it's that long!) I made R a dicebag to go to the Championships with. It's very basic, felt square, black one side, white the other, drawstring top. Very him. But he thought he would like a new one for this years Champs, so I dug through the material stash, and found some material he liked and started cutting and sewing. It was basically a long rectangle of material that looped around the bottom and folded over the top, and two curved end pieces which fitted in. I finished it last night, and it made a great bag. In a girly, clutch bag kind of way. Hmmm.
And then it ended up on H's head. After it had been a hat for various people, H asked if he could have it for a hat, so I said absolutely and he took it home with him. There's no way R could have taken it to the Champs. He would have, because he loves me and I made it for him, but no, lol!
So it's back to the drawing board for me with that one! Thankfully, it's no effort to sew something like that, although I'm not a good seamstress. It was very satisfying though, which is why I made a small thing with one of the inserts that I was going to put into the bag to separate the different kinds of dice. I quite like it, but I think it will be appropriated by the child for putting small things in. And that's very good.
In other news, there is nothing exciting! We've had 2 pictures of the BG, one of her face and one of the back of her head looking at flamingoes.
And now the AC is up so I'm getting off of here to go and play. He's a bit coldy this morning, but he should be fine for church. Next week I start doing the notices for church, which is going to be more work, but also giving something back to an institution which has given me so much.
Laters lovely people!
