I really like this pattern. Simplicity 2689. I like the style and variations and I like the ease of putting together what is a nicely finished garment. It needs some tweaking for summer wear but I hope I can figure out how to make the adjustments because I have many variations and ideas for this garment.
I was surprised by the fabric K picked. I pulled out a bunch of old sheets and asked her to pick the fabric she wanted. I didn't think it would look good but I actually rather like the look.

Some of you have very sweetly inquired into how I am doing. It is still rough. The details of the roller-coaster emotions would probably bore you. However, last night was particularly difficult. I tend towards arrogance and I have been praying to be taught the attitude of humility. Last night, I got a lesson in humility from someone I love and respect and it hurt.
I was very weepy last night and am very preoccupied today. As soon as the girls get enough school done, I am going to sew. I need something to take myself away from this inner-dialogue; it is a conversation that could lead to bitterness. I have no patience with bitter people - so I want to run away from that attitude. Maybe I need to learn patience too.
I think spring and gardening and the outdoors would be good for my soul right now.
Someone noted the huge amount of snow we still have on the ground. It is snowy and we are entering our third snowiest month of the year. Minnesotans have a a bit of a journey yet before the weather mellows.
Well enough feeling sorry for myself. I have life to attend to.
Thanks my friends.
