The Coat On Me
Thank you all for the very, very kind comments on my coat! Since I always want to see everyone's garments on them, I feel like a cheater just showing things on my dressform. I was anxious to get some photos of me wearing it and I was lucky enough to get my father to take some photos of me in the coat this afternoon when I was over there. They turned out pretty well I think.
Of course we all see every flaw in our own work, and I can see them here, but I've decided to quit obsessing once something's done, and just enjoy the finished product. I love this coat, and as many of you guessed, it's really luxurious feeling. I'm sure it's probably the most glamorous coat I'm likely to have or make, and I'm going to take advantage!
You can see all the coat photos here.
As a special bonus, my parents noted that there were some photos on the card in their camera from the last few times they'd taken pictures. There were about 12; some from last winter and some from the summer before that. As you can tell, they're not exactly shutterbugs. So, they sent the whole camera home with me until I get a replacement for mine. How nice!
I hope everyone had a wonderful New Year's Eve and a great New Year. We always watch the Rose Parade on television. A tradition, and lots of fun. It always seems to get the new year off to a pleasant beginning.
