Well, as you can see, Thermal took a bath. She's now blocking in various places around the little one-bedroom apartment we live in. I must admit to being a bit worried about how big she was, straight out of her bath -- I am trying to trust in the wisdom of my initial swatches.
When she is dried completely I will do the last little bit -- weaving in some ends, knitting the button placket and ribbed collar, and sewing in the sleeves. Oh, the anticipation. I also have three different kinds of buttons to choose from, which is always an agonizing decision.
In other news, my trip to the fabric store was pretty successful. I got lots of fabric to make a handful of laundry bags (in part of my ongoing and somewhat successful attempt at organization) and also some adorable gingham for a springtime purse. What can I say -- anything to get me through the winter. I put the skirts on the back burner for now, in an attempt to come home with less than, like, 20 pounds of fabric. Oy.
Living life somewhere in the grey area between Liz Lemon and Nancy Botwin. I live with my beloved Heterosexual Life Mate (HLM), no kids, two beautiful feline ladies, and what I can only assume are self-replenishing stacks of fabric and yarn.
