This is one daring kitty. Not only does he curl up in the sink, he curls up in a blind man's sink (who actually did turn on the water shortly after this picture was taken!)
This cat is my sewing companion. He especially likes to be involved whenever I am laying out fabric or cutting. His other favorite passtime (when he's not harassing the other two cats) is to play fetch - with a hair rubberband - at 2:00 am! But, we love our kitty. The little weirdo.
I wore my gray skirt to school today, but this morning I let out the side seams a bit. I only had about 1/8-3/16" that I could take out on each side, but multiplied by 4, it was amazing what a difference it made. Now I love the fit of it - but still hate the lining. This "lining" clings like crazy. I guess I'll have to rub it with some dryer sheets or something before I wear it again.
We had a great Thanksgiving at my house. Here's a picture of my dad, my kids, and me.
Last night was the LAST class meeting of my LAST class for my master's degree. YAY!!!! Of course, now I have no excuse to not be writing my thesis.
And... when I got home, look what I got from Fabric Mart Fabrics.
After I ordered these fabrics, I decided to go back online and order some more of their silk charmeuses to use as linings. At less than $5.00 per yard, you can't beat it. The anti-cling poly at Joann's is $4.99 and the cheapest price on Ambiance is still around $8.00/yard. So why not have a little fun and luxury with those linings?
In the picture above, the two fabrics on the left are poly knit blends, the ivory paisly on the bottom is a wool knit, the ivory floral on top is silk charmeuse and the other three are poly charmeuse. I should get another package with about 4 more cuts of silk soon.
I haven't been sewing or knitting for the past few days because I have been having a lot of pain in my shoulder and am going to Physical Therapy. I hope this stops soon. I did buy some black moleskin to make a vest for my brother - who is a rock star. Well, not exactly, but he is a star to me and all the fans who follow their band. I am making it for him for Christmas. I'm going to make a dress for my daughter and a couple of pair of PJ pants for my son. Now I know why the SWAP isn't starting until January!
And PR weekend west coast is coming up in March. I'm so excited. Even though I live in California, I rarely go to LA and I've never shopped in the garment district. It will be so fun to meet a lot of the people that I "talk" to online. There is a thread about it on the message boards on PR
