I ended up pulling all the fabric stash out of the closet and then restacking it in a way that I can tell what's in there. I ended up making the jacket out of some minky I found. That stuff is such a bitch to cut and sew with. It sheds all over every thing but it is so soft and cuddly and that's what I wanted. So I figure I'd use it up and never buy any again. I'll make one out of fleece, too, probably.
I got all my errands done and even remembered to get gas. By the time I got home I was fried. I love my air conditioner so much.

Maybe this should be incentive to clean out my hanging closet. It sure could use it.
Baseball tonight on TV at 7. Maybe I'll watch a Suburbian murder before dinner. Yesterday, I watched an episode where Mrs. Hughes from Downton Abbey played the victim's wife. It was pretty disconcerting to see her in modern clothes with dark brown hair.
