A friend and I spent the afternoon yesterday at one of my favorite garden nurseries in town, It's About Thyme. For a few hours before that, and several afterward, I worked my butt off in the backyard: mowing, pruning, digging, planting, mulching, filling the compost pile, moving rocks and cobblestones, and generally just rebooting my garden from - if you'll pardon the pun - from the ground up. There's more here at my garden blog.
No kidding, I've had this purple jersey knit fabric sitting in a bag for _over a year_ waiting for me to "just be done with this one project" before I'd start it. Meanwhile, the knit bathrobe I made for myself in 2008 was literally full of holes (puppy) and falling apart at the seams. So I made this one to replace it. The pattern is the same as the Japanese clothing I've made in the past for Sir Takuan, and also the one I used for my short, silk robe/cover-up last year.
Vacationing! (Some More)
Some friends of mine and I are spending next weekend at King Spa & Waterpark in Dallas. WHEEE!!! I can't wait.
More soon. :)
