Asleep...What's That?...Alert...Back Asleep again...
Well, things do happen. Best laid plans and etc. I am muddling through my first quarter assignment albeit I will be about half speed for a few weeks! My youngest daughter broke her fibula and tibia on Christmas Eve. This set about a domino effect... typically she watches my oldest daughter's puppy, Gidget, but now is out of commission for several weeks and may need our support as well during her post-surgical recovery. Things taken for granted like cooking, bathing, clean hair, shopping for food, become a temporary dependency. That, and am now officially babysitting the Granddog weekdays. SO. GLAD. I. PICKED. EASY. for my first quarter in Wardrobe Capsulelandia.
I can, and did, spend the afternoon taking things out of the puppies mouth in-between searching for ultimate Parka on my iPad as I was glued to sofa. Gees, you'd think there would be a plethora of patterns...NOT SO. I like set in sleeves, I wanted a drawstring waist, a lining, a zipper. YIKES! I went through every Burda Style, big 4, independent and FINALLY, settled on :
Next thing, ordered pattern and then after clearing off Christmas paper and ribbons from my ironing board, I sorted my fabric and whatnot into the project box as prescribed by our fearless project leader. Now. I am done for a bit, and can wait for pattern to arrive from Australia. In meanwhile, there are two sleeves to finish on one blouse, and another blouse to cut.
