I forgot to mention that we were able to go out for a romantic dinner, just the two of us, not on Valentine's Day, but the day before. I wore my tunic, I think for the first time out. I'd just worn it around the house before. The only problem with it is that it's a pretty stretchy fabric, and it started to sag a bit towards the end of the evening. I'll have to keep that in mind as I work on other knits. But other than that, it was fun to wear it out to get a little bit dressed up, but still be casual.

I have finally started working on some projects again. I cut out fabric to make a dress (not for me, though) and I may start sewing that together today. I've decided on the fabric for one window. It's some fabric I already had, so I need to measure the window to decide what kind of curtain I want to make. The window is really tall, so I either need to pull a chair into that room and tell the kids not to emulate me as I climb up on the chair, or ask someone taller than me to help measure, please.

After that, there are only 20 other windows in the house.

Lastly, I'm going to pull out my knitting as soon as I'm finished here and start working on a spring top. I think I need to make some measurements and work on some swatches, so I may not actually start today.

I'll post some pictures as oon as I have something to show!
