Um… Yeah… So I took an unscheduled but entirely enjoyable internet break this past week. I checked for messages before heading to the States to shop with my sister on Wednesday and then just didn’t come back to the computer for 5 days. It was good.
We also had a lot of fun shopping and spending an entirely kid-free day! Without our families tagging along and with no curfew we got to spend as much time as we wanted in every store — especially the fabric shop! And we even ate dinner at 8 p.m. (as my sister put it: “We’re eating like real adults!”) Also, I must be having a fabric love affair with the colour green right now — every single fabric I purchased last week was green!
I’m also hard at work on my Washi (sort of — I keep getting pulled off in all directions for everything from school work to birthday parties to sick kids). I was in the process of attaching the collar facing when I realized that I had made a dumb cutting mistake so I’ve just been picking that back out to redo while I waited for the computer to boot and read e-mails. If I can stay awake enough I’ll finish fixing that problem tonight and move on to finishing it all up tomorrow. Then I can get started on another version. A dress version. With those lovely sleeves!
