I usually have 5-7 swimsuits in rotation at all times. I like the variety. In the past few days, I've had two of the current batch reach EOF (End of Life). The spandex just goes. And one day you slide into the water and just feel the fabric flapping on your ass. Today was the day for the one on the far right. The one next to it is about one swim away from butt flapping.


Periodically 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.

I found a new list of questions for So Susan, entries. I'm getting a little weary of nothing but sewing/knitting/swimming entries. Here's a group that might be fun to write about:
