One hell week down, one to go. Wednesday seems to be the bad day both weeks, so once Thursday hits this week, it's smooth sailing. Perfect day for an hour or so in the chair at the hair salon. :o)

So, this was Tuesday. Monday afternoon I spent an hour or so playing in the dirt in my garden, in a t shirt and bare feet. Tuesday we woke up to rain which turned to wet snow, which turned to this. Yes, that's sunscreen under that chaise. Yesterday it was 81ยบ and I had the A/C on in the car.







No sewing this week (no surprise there) although I did sit myself down and take the time to draw out a pattern that I can use to paper piece the pineapple blocks for Danielle's quilt, once I get some time to actually sew. This week? Doubtful.

Tori ordered prom dress online. Sigh... there's no disappointment like waiting for the perfect dress to arrive only to find that the side zipper only goes up halfway. I found almost the same dress in a McCall's pattern and have offered (I know, I know) to try and make it. We have the pattern (5850) and the fabric (eggplant satin taffeta.) I'm gonna test drive the bodice in muslin, though. I might be crazy, but I'm not nuts!
