Went to the fabric store yesterday after work.  They had 7 yards of only one off the off-white linen blends in stock, so I looked at some other colors too and decided on this (cheaper) green linen blend.


Oh it’s gorgeous!!!  Sorry for potato quality; it was a little dark in the room when I took the picture, and I obviously didn’t let is focus for long enough.

So last night I cut out all of the pieces and then pinned them, and today I really want to start sewing.  I’m pretty sure that I won’t be able to start on it today though…so maybe tomorrow.  Or Thursday.  Or Friday for heavens sake.  I seriously wish that I was home sewing right now.

This weekend, I went to a Country Living fair in Lebanon with Stephen, his mom, and his oldest sister.  I had a good time even though I came away with quite a sunburn on my shoulders.  It’s not the worst I’ve ever hard, but I really need to buy some sunscreen for this summer…..  Here are a few pictures.

Mostly I just wanted to post the update about the cloak though.  Eh heh.

I'm a young, childless widow who is trying to figure out the best way to deal with the world in light of my late husband's suicide. It's harder than I ever imagined it would be, but somehow at the same time I am still alive and even happy sometimes.

    1. I know — I thought white would be great for walking around on a hot day, but then thought that green was a more likely color for the renaissance. and it’s prettier anyway, so works out.
