1. Lavender Earl Grey tea. Ah.

2. Cozy house moccasins.

3. Switching to the very lightest-weight needle (70/09) to minimize puckering on this super lightweight taffeta. Works decently even when sewing through two layers of linen as well.

4. Setting down the iron on top of my finger. Ouch.

5. No home should be without an aloe plant. It even survives when you forget to water it for *mumblety* weeks.

6. Realizing that since the gown is open all the way down the front, there HAS to be a petticoat underneath.

7. Desperate thoughts of overnight shipping from Burnley & Trowbridge.

8. Discovering that the green/silver shot taffeta remnant bought in L.A. is the perfect amount for a decent petticoat. Whew. And hurrah for smart stash-building.


Back to the old grindstone!
