Weather forecast for 80 degrees?
Resulting in frantic sewing on dimity gown?

Dump the responsibility for the cooking competition to include documentation on our cook?
Mend the hole in the cook's shirt from where a stray spark took up residence between said shirt and skin?
Tie for first place in the cooking contest?
|One of our entries in the cooking competition - Salmagundi. There are greens, chicken, ham, anchovies, egg whites, egg yolks, anchovies, orange slices, fried chicken skin, rose petals, and butter in the shape of a pine cone.|
Check. (Previous best has been third place. Twice.)
Frantic sewing this week for a coworker who “Fights With Foam”? to include a both linen and woolen fighting tunics.
|The sleeves were lined with a linen blend and hemmed with this nifty stitch that keeps the wool from fraying but doesn't add bulk.|
|Triangular gore added to the center front and back. Quality materials make this so much easier.|
Need to start a gown for Sweet Daughter’s best friend (birthday party next Saturday).
Oh, and at some point, after spending a morning in the wind selling Girl Scout cookies in February, I decided our table needed to be upholstered. Sweet Daughter picked the font for the lettering. I am so not like other moms.
More when I come up for air.
