My Hafla is Saturday, and the Catholic Librarian is decidedly nervous. I managed to practice my routine several times last night before Hank sabotaged me. My envelope is much improved. I discovered that I just need to adjust my finger placement on my veil right beforehand to make the envelope flawless. Or, well, not look stupid.
So, the envelope is better, but suddenly the veil is slipping out of my fingers at other inopportune times. My teacher, Claire, says of the veil: "they're very much like children. You train them, think you have it all figured out, but suddenly - they'll embarrass you in public."
We'll get there. Goal tonight: practice with my costume top with the giant belle sleeves. This could get tricky.
