I have gotten so when I am in a store like Dillard's or Penneys or wherever, I don't even look at the clothes, never mind try them on. I KNOW they are not going to fit me, so why bother?
I bought 6 yards of coating fabric for my Gertie coat. It is a black and white houndstooth print. I am putting a bright red lining in it! I think we are starting a sew-along-with-Gertie on October 1st. I will keep you posted. Of course, I will be using my SFD blueprint for fitting assurance. I would like to just draw this pattern from my SFD kit, but I'm afraid I would drive Glenda crazy asking her questions.
The current plan is to drive home tomorrow morning. I will tear our bedroom apart to make sure their are no relatives of the big scorpion that climbed up Jerry's undershirt while he was sleeping one night still in the room. Jerry told me he sprayed scorpion spray IN THE VENTS because he thought they came up through the vents. I told him I hoped he didn't kill the two of us by blowing that poison all through the house! I will put some fresh sticky traps under the bed so the crawly things will get stuck. They work really good, and they aren't toxic. Except for the few times I have stuck one to the vacuum wand, or the time the cat got his paw stuck on one, we haven't had any problems with them.
Gotta go. I'll be back tomorrow from HOME! Countertops are GUARANTEED to be in on Tuesday!
