It was wonderfully beautiful out today, so after Mom and Dad left I walked the dog and Ted mowed the back lawn, and then I set off to find the swimming pool. I did not get anywhere near the swimming pool, but I did take lots of pictures, many of which will be featured at kitsnaps (also syndicated at kitsnaps, I said in a shameless plug) over the next month.
Rather than do anything enormously useful with my evening, I uploaded pictures to kitsnaps, put up family Easter pictures, and helped debela sort through her closet, which she was purging. I thought that was a pretty good trick for somebody on the other side of the Atlantic. :) She is getting rid of approximately 249659870345907 silk shirts, and I thought it would be an excellent project to take her silk shirts and turn them into a frock coat for her. A patchwork frock coat. I have never done such a thing, but I've been wanting 1. an excuse to buy a sewing machine, which I felt I needed at least one specific project to make it a reasonable purchase, and 2. something crafty to do that could be down time from writing, and I think this is a ridiculously fun idea. *beam* I'm really looking forward to it. It'll probably take me forever, but it's not like I've got a timeline on it. :)
Hm. I seem to have lost my net connection. I think I'll figure out how to save this, and go to bed.
It's morning now, but since I haven't posted this I thought I'd just add a bit more on instead of making a whole new posting. I decided that if I was going to get a sewing machine and do some projects, that one of them would be to make myself a trumpet skirt like this one, only in a color flattering to me. I'm thinking rich forest green, maybe in lightweight wool. And maybe I could make me a handkerchief skirt, because I really like them. Hm.
