I used the time to start my pattern organization. 3 patterns in, I hit one that I'm pretty sure I never actually made. I taped all the pattern pieces together but didn't actually get around to making the top out of cloth. So... let's give it a go.
I measured it carefully to ensure it would clear my giant ass and the sleeves would fit around my major guns. Lately my arms have gotten so fat. I would say that it's because of swimming but... we're not talking muscle here, we're talking old lady flab so probably it's more due to eating than swimming. Once I got the pattern all altered, I started the fabric. I'm trying out a couple of new techniques that I've seen lately (mainly on Instagram which has turned into a major sewing resource for me). I got most of the shirt done and could easily finish it this afternoon but no need. It will wait.
I got interrupted by the laminate guys. One was one of the ones who did the initial installation and the other was a new guy. They could not have been nicer. They studied the problem for a while actually and discussed it. They thought maybe they should wait until they could order more of the bull nose edge in case, in the fix, they broke what was there. But, finally, they decided to try the fix and see how it went. It went perfectly. And they left the whole kitchen cleaner than they found it. At no charge.
Nice. So nice.
Outside is so gross. The air is just heavy with junk. The laminate guys said that it's worse this afternoon than it was this morning. I'm so glad I don't have to go anywhere. Zoey's voting for TV and yarn work this afternoon and I'm good with that.
I'm really looking forward to the baseball game tonight. One of our best players has been out for an 80 game drug violation suspension (which was stupid on his part but, hey, he's such a great player and fun guy and has such a great smile) is coming back tonight. We'll still probably lose because we are playing Oakland and they have lost the ability to lose but it will be nice to see Cano swing the bat again.
