We have snow in St Louis.
This is a rare enough occurance that everything in town has closed down - including the Fortune 500 co my husband works for - they closed both locations of their complexes today.
Where I come from, this amount of snow wouldn't be enough to cause a 2 hr delay for schools, but here, well, it's a different story. It sure is pretty.
Meanwhile, the fates are surely smiling down on me. This is the pant muslin, as sent down to her. I could cry for joy.
Want to hear something funny? Last night, after helping with the ongoing fitting project, my B-in-law looked at my sister and said "wouldn't it just be easier to buy a plane ticket for you to go to her?" That plane ticket was booked before he could turn around. Um, the answer to that question DBIL, is "yes".
She'll be here March 6-10 for a 4 day weekend, and I should be able to get all the final fitting done. Even being gone for 3 weeks in Feb, I should be able to have all the garments cut and basted together for fitting so that when she gets here we can start and finish first fittings, then hopefully assemble at least the challenging garments and get final fittings and hems marked before she has to leave again. Ambitious, but not nearly as frustrating as long distance.
