Distracted Again

April 6th, 2011

I’m still working on the final stages of the Civil War exhibition at the Museum where I work — boy, wait till you see this one! It’s probably the most unusual Civil War tribute that is being mounted in New York. Truly. I will explain as soon as I am able. Until then, consider yourselves tantalized.

I’ve also been hard at work on the Nineteenth Century Society website. You can take a peek at nineteenthcenturysociety.org. And please don’t judge too harshly — it’s still a work in progress. We’ve yet to add much content, and you would shriek in horror if you could see the sloppy, un-commented, presumptive PHP that I’ve used to animate the Google Calendar event feed. The important thing however is that it works. I will make it neat later on. And add all the neat little javascript tid-bits.

I’m particularly excited about the Nineteenth Century Society forum…

Aside from a few half-hearted stabs at my neglected broderie anglaise, I haven’t been sewing at all. Just working all day and hacking the Google Calendar API all night. I am eager to get back into my stays again though, and see if this latest pattern tweak will do the trick. More soon on that, including a big vote of thanks to the lovely folks on The Sewing Academy Forum for their brilliant fitting suggestions.
