The only change I'll make is on the zipper gusset inside the hood. I might do a thin zipper guard instead so I can pull the hood open completely. Small changes. This would be so cute for summer wear in a light linen or longer as a lounge robe in flannel. Lots of possibilities now that the pattern is nicely adjusted. Additionally I would love to do this in something like waxed cotton for true hard working barn wear.
The sewing salon hasn't been terribly busy. I had a lot of town trips last week. One of them was for a much overdue eye check. I wanted to make sure no damage had been done by the diabetes diagnosis. All is well on that front but each eye has a cataract luckily out of the field of vision...for now. I did pick out new glasses. I did something I have never done before in 40 years of wearing glasses. I couldn't make up my mind between two frames, so dang it, you only live once, I bought both. Here is one of them.
I do so love the bling. The inside of the dark brown frame is bright turquoise. My present pair is quite worn at 3.5 years old since I wear glasses just about all the time.
I have been working on the little rose path warp on the horizontal mill and doing some more weaving on the bumblebee warp. This is towel 5.
The yellow weft is just a bit lighter than the one in the warp.
The dogs are adjusting to life without Smoochie.

We all are in our way.
Way back in September I put in a subscription for Vav magazine. It never came so I had to get on the horn to find out why. Fast forward to last week, the first two issues of my subscription arrived and this garment caught my eye. What an inspiring piece!
Here is the website.
In honor of the amazing Women's March, Dreamers and everyone else under assault by this presidency, I send you this song by Bob Marley.
Parting shot: Waiting for the old lady.
