And so begins Day #4 of being cooped up! Last week Greg's car was in the shop and I was wheel-less at the beginning of the week, and by Thursday my car wouldn't start! I was completely bummed, because Kate and I were on the way to
go shopping, errrrr, I mean, to the Dr.'s office :) and my car wouldn't even get out of park! Completely dead. Turns out it's probably the alternator (which means absolutely nothing to me since I don't know a thing about cars). No car again today, and probably tomorrow, sigh. Soooo Kate and I have been logging a lot of hours the past two weeks at home. Our big accomplishment last week, besides learning how to slide all by our self at the park, do tons of laundry and eat m&m's, was to whip up this little coat. I had the corduroy in my fabric stash and I had bought the pink brocade that I used for the lining last week at Jo-Ann's on sale. We added to the pattern a pink stretch velvet ribbon for a belt and the singed fabric flower. For my first outerwear piece, I am pretty happy with it! And of course, we needed a matching headband to complement of nearly hairless, except for about three very tight corkscrew curls, head.
As you can see, Kate was delighted with the photo op...insert the sound plllllllll with some spitting into the photo above....
