Updates from Roanoke

This past week was busy 4-day work week.  I did not do much in the way of sewing during the week, though always thinking about sewing related ideas.

I did celebrate my birthday on Wednesday-January 19.  I hit the big 60!   I can hardly believe it, but I along with many of my HS classmates are starting to celebrate this accomplishment.  My birthday present to myself was to buy some fabric, only I am currently waiting for feedback on an order as some of what I wanted to purchase may no longer be available.  Have no fear, I have a lot of other alternatives.

Yesterday AM I began the pattern fitting and adjustments for the McCall's jacket pattern that I am going to sew next.  This will use up all of the black/white wool fabric.  I actually finished the adjustments before having to get ready to go to Danville to have dinner with several of our HS classmates who also had or were celebrating turning 60 as well.  Great time of good food and fellowship.  We laughed a lot, which helps burn all those calories from the food and beverages we had.

This morning, I began the cutting out process of the jacket.  I am also going to add a lining to this, again because it is wool and want an extra fabric between me and wool.  It should be an easy jacket to make.  I am going with the shorter version, mainly because that is about all the fabric I have left. 

Off to fix some breakfast and then back to sewing.  More later.
