I’m currently rereading Wyrd Sisters and am identifying with Hwel right now.

Particles of raw inspiration sleet through the universe all the time. Every
once in a while one of them hits a receptive mind, which then invents DNA or
the flute sonata form or a way of making light bulbs wear out in half the time.
Some people are even more unfortunate. They get them all.

Leading to this:

He made the mistake of pausing, and another inspiration sleeted down,
sending his train of thought off along an entirely new track.

Basically this is me currently, and for one of my dream projects.

I have vivid dreams just before waking, and most of the time they are stress/anxiety related so I spend a few moments just shedding those images and words to start the day in a better state than they would lend. But sometimes, sometimes that vividness works in my favour and I wind up figuring out how to make or do something either as intended or within new limitations.

And my limitations now are more than during the making, but also wearing, and also storing.

So to figure out how to get over all of that? Pretty impresseive.

And that is what happened to figure out a safe to make and wear Chimera gown after the original.

It will work really well for the back, and can be adapted for the front.

I very much though want to make the silver leather Freya gown from the second Hunstman film. Both require accuracy in scaling scales that scale. Hah! Scale as in doing a 1/4 test fit. Scales as in the scales you can see, and scale as in they start one size and scale up or down or both.

Freya from Huntsman 2.

I will need to then accurate files for a one off chance for my cutting machine. And from there have a plan for storing the in progress and finished works. At the moment the materials are stored in parts with other stash.

But this is exciting as well; being inspired at all after three days of a fibro flare that had me crying is impressive. And I have graph paper already out and ready to use, and paper for my fabric doll that I probably could use for a test fit. Okay… let’s get showered and emulgel applied to hips and back. For the first time topically applied NSAIDs work.

That’s because my fibro really does start as muscle pain, transfers to myofascia (the delicate connection between muscles and muscle and skin) to skin. So stuff applied to my skin seems to help. Also diclofenac has analgesic as well as anti-inflammatory effects. Today is also the first day I can use my knuckles to work the tight muscles in my back. I still feel a bit sick doing so, and I can still feel like my knuckles are digging in but on balance it’s helping.

I wish I could afford a weekly massage, or actually daily, but I’ll see if I can find one of those foam rollers if I can use one without my hands.
