Periodically spandextworld.com has a sale and I scarf up whatever looks fun and is $8 or less. (It takes one yard to make a suit.) I thought I had a couple of unused yards in the stash. I just looked and I actually have 4! I forgot about the time, not long ago, when Goodwill had a couple of contenders that I picked up for $2 each! I keep lining and elastic on hand. So... one of these days soon, I'll be beefing up the suit inventory again.
But not today. Today I have other projects ahead of this. I want to start the patchwork for the coat. And I need to get my sewing patterns organized electronically. I have been dumping them into a folder on my Google drive but that's kind of getting to be a hoarder's closet floor. I have some ideas but I need to knuckle down and get a system. I got two new patterns this morning and they are going to get lost and forgotten if I don't get my pattern shit together.
I was delighted to discover this morning that the end of daylight savings time did not cut out my comfy dark mornings. For some reason that almost makes no sense, I love my nighttime mornings. Leaving in the dark, swimming in the dark (the pool has gynormous windows on two sides) and coming home in the dark. I was afraid that I'd hit daybreak before I got home. Nope. Yeah!
The non-make things I'd like to do today are:
1. take my ballot to the ballot box or put a stamp on it and mail it.
2. get come ATM cash
3. pick up my hold book at the library
4. make a small grocery store run (I'm running out of hot chocolate!)
Tomorrow would work for any of it. And I may split it up. 1 and 3 tomorrow, 2 and 4 today.
