So I went to Goodwill for the linens sale and cashed in. I got some cool stuff. One of the bits was a Queen sized sheet - a nice cotton check - that I decided to try out my pants with. Worked out fine except it reminded me why I want knit. (Soft and stretchy, thank you very much.)
There's a well known pants pattern out there that is expensive $25. I opted for a free one I found. My test demonstrated why I need to shell out the $$ so I did. It's not a downloadable pattern which is a PIA because 1. I have to wait for it to be shipped and 2. It will come on crappy paper so I'll need to transfer it onto my good stuff. BUT, it's a tried and true pattern and the pattern maker is readily available and graciously willing to help with any fitting issues. So I'll be able to have a perfect pattern that I can make over and over again.
I am spending money like it's going out of style lately. My investments are doing so well that it's nearly frightening. Whenever stocks are solidly excellent like they have been for the past year, the bust seems so imminent. I feel healthy so I need to mind my pennies so they will last and support me in the style to which I have become accustomed! I need to put my wallet away. Says she who's for sure heading out to Walmart tomorrow morning. Sigh.
My Google phone trade in package arrived today. I'm ready. Alas, it looks as if the new phone won't be here for another week and a half.
I have sausages and mac and cheese (only it's bowtie pasta and cheese) for dinner. Maybe with some applesauce. Massive comfort food, and the reason I am massive. ha!
