maybe its just an unflattering picture ...


I mean really, how good can a jacket look when you take a picture of yourself in it in the mirror at 8:45am when you're already late for work? I did get a compliment when I walked into work, so it can't be all bad.

Anyhoo, picture notwithstanding I'm pleased with how it turned out -- I actually took the time to finish it nicely (though you will see I cheesed out on the buttonhole and used a pin instead). I'll try to find someone to take a (more flattering!) picture of me in it later for an updated blog!

It's beautiful! I love it, love it! Pattern # please? I wish I could have seen your beautiful face in the picture.

The light emanating from your face -- soul? -- is a little disturbing. The jacket is QUITE nice, though. Good work.

I'm just that radiant Scott. You know that! And welcome to the crafty blog.

Perhaps you can share your fudge hole recipe with us?

More good news -- I bought some pussy willows to put in my new vase. Happy Dyngus Day!

Oh goodness, we've got the boys commenting now, as well! That'll be fun!

I love the jacket! The pattern is bigger than I thought, but it' works really well. And the pin idea is a fab one for those of us allergic to making button holes. What is the pattern #? I may be inspired... Or maybe I should just use some of the patterns I already have. If I can find them. I want to be back in my own house!!!

Scott! I've missed you! Darn, Kristen-moving to Atlanta like that!!
Fudge holes? I'm fascinated.

Oh it's so good to have everybody together like this in blogland! And I am so pleased to hear that my fudgehold recipe is in high demand. I will work on posting that to my blog, which I launched just two days ago.
