Just couldn't leave it plain. More is after all, more.
Once I was happy with that and went on to finally finish threading the towel warp I was dismayed to find it was rather dark under there in the evening. In fact I moved Mongo the Mac under the bright lights and that left Fanny Justine in part of the studio not well lit at night. But we fixed that too. Mongo had two sets of castle lights, front and rear. I would likely never use the rear strip so I removed them, cut the strip to fit and re-installed them on F. Justine. Lights, camera, sleying!
The salon was moderately busy. It was a good place to rest and recharge after last weeks bad news.
Two lovely button down fall blouses made it out. Long sleeved and complete with nice cuffs and placket.
|Lobster's, foxes, tractors and boats!|
|Loved being able to use the cute selvedge.|
I could still go down a size I think but I love this longer length.
The fabric is a piece of wool suiting I've had in stash for at least 4 years and there was just enough for this comfy fall skirt. I wore it out today to market with cotton tights and some casual boots and felt quite seasonal.
The week has been catch up on some household stuff, like a good cleaning on both floors, bathrooms included. I've also been trying out recipes for a pear custard pie, and different quick breads. Cool weather has made baking possible again and even enjoyable!
The country right now is like an erupting shit show. I'm sorry, I don't have a better way of putting it. Between the horror of Florence ( and that there are so many people still suffering after Maria!), that squirrely Kavanaugh jerk, the orange asshat and his gang of crooked stooges (You know, the GOP), the fear that the Russians have this coming election rigged and the ever increasing and unchecked gun violence I'm feeling a bit less optimistic than usual. I was considering throwing out "Fixing A Hole" but I'm saving that for a really black day! :-)
Because one of the recent car commercials has given me a week long ear worm, I'm sharing it with all of you! We can all be humming together! How groovy is that? Here you go, something fun.
Parting shot: Intent on Timmy, always!
