Wow, what a fabulous response to making a coat beginning in July!
Because there is so much interest, and there are some incredible seamstresses here who will also have great information to add, I'm going to go ahead and set up another site specifically dedicated to this sewalong.
In other news, (and the reason that I've been running up to Michigan several times lately):
It's no secret that eventually we'll be selling our home and moving onto a boat, to become citizens of the blue water cruising community. Well my friends, this week we're one step closer to that dream. This week we've become the proud owners of an IP45 sailboat.
My husband still has some years left in the working world, so for awhile this will only be our summer/weekend/vacation retreat, on Lake Michigan.
Eventually though, we'll be boarding her and sailing through the Great Lakes, out the St Lawrence Seaway, and into the blue yonder.
to answer the most often asked questions:
yes, I'll continue blogging and
yes I'll have internet access and
yes I'll be taking a sewing machine, and
