My Hunny is coming home from hunting tomorrow or Wednesday! Guess that means no more late night sewing seesions. That's okay, I'm really missing him and besides, in a couple of weeks he'll be gone again for elk season! My latest project is almost complete...Butterick 5223. I am making view B with the collar out of the grey linen-like fabric that I made the Patrones skirt (My 2 yard wonder outfit) The jacket is coming together nicely, but I need a large snap for the closure. I dug through the button bin and found an interest single button that looks like a nugget. I know it sounds weird, but this button looked really good. I wanted something different and interesting since it only calls for one button. A large snap under the button is the way to go. I resisted going to JoAnn's for the Columbus day sale because 1) I would have fell off the fabric embargo wagon and 2) my hair appointment ran long and I didn't have time before work. Just as well. I was very happy with what Caron did this time. She has been trying to get me to move away from the bob for some time now, and so when I came in toting a picture she was thrilled. It's stacked in back with the sides long enough to push behind my ears and of course my trademark bangs. I have a big forehead and with the left eye droop thing going on, I need some coverage!!! I like it...don't know how Tom will feel, but it's my head. It's not like I shaved it or anything (though the thought did cross my mind) I like my nose and my smile...eyes and forehead not so much. So what's your favorite feature?

That is a fab pattern! I can't wait to see your jacket from it. Hmmm...favorite facial features? I'd have to say I like my high cheekbones and ears. People used to tell me my smile was terrific and I did get voted as having the Best Smile when I was a senior in high school, but it got "old" very quickly to me. So many people thought my teeth were naturally perfect (I switched schools in the summer between 8th and 9th grade), oh...if they only knew the permanent teeth that had to get pulled and the years of headgears and braces to get that smile. Natural? No way. It took me a while to get used to not having crooked, buck teeth anymore.
