LOL! I usually think of 'dark days' projects for winter but the soggy conditions outside today made me think of 'damp days' projects. J17 and I made a trip to the fabric store this afternoon after she decided earlier this week that she really doesn't like the way her mock-up of this year's prom dress was fitting (she has learned well why I tell her to make a trial run before she cuts her expensive dress fabric!!). So, we went in search of a new pattern and fabric for the trial run of this one. I'll have to post photos later. It is a really cute 'retro' pattern from the 50's and is quite simple- but classy. Even with prewashing the fabric she already has the dress cut out and about half finished this evening- it only has 5 pattern pieces! So getting the final product completed by prom (May 5th) shouldn't be too difficult. She is hoping to also make an 'accessory' so she can enter the scholarship contest that JoAnn Fabrics has for making your own prom dress.
I even pulled out a pattern and some fabric for a shirt for myself and got it cut out this evening. It's been a while since I made anything for myself- it should be fun.
While we were out and about, J17 and I stopped and picked up bricks for the herb spiral. I'm guessing on how many I will need. I just hope it dries out enough in the near future that I can get started on construction before the sale ends next weekend. At the current sale price of $.29 per brick it isn't too bad cost-wise for this project. Unfortunately, the weather doesn't look like it will cooperate much. Of course... I like playing in the mud! At least the rain has 'settled' the original core pile of dirt so I won't have to worry about the bricks sinking too much.
Other than that, I've not got much. Tomorrow is another Monday... I'll see how much I get done.
