I’ve made a terrible, terrible mistake.

I was looking for something to watch on TV while I beaded, and saw Downtown Abbey was on. Like a fool, I clicked on it, to see what all the fuss was about. I am now doomed.

New article at the Examiner, on stellar geraniums!

I have begun my assault on the pile of clothing that needs to be altered before I can wear it. I started with the easiest one: a culotte? skort? dress. It fit around me just fine, but my long body made it difficult to wear without being cut in half lengthwise.

So I cut the crotch out of thing, trimmed the excess fabric, ran the center back and front seams on down to the hem, and rehemmed it. New dress for me, as soon as spring comes and it's warm enough to wear it!
And one less thing in the pile!
