What are you looking at? That's the armhole of the jacket I just finished. Done completely with French seams. So awesome.

My instincts were right. Velvet trim and a good ironing can cover any manner of sins in sewing. Just the sleeves left and my new fall jacket will be done, just in time for the thaw this weekend.

This morning's cleaned-up, work-appropriate version on my Merida hair. Clearly the new curly product I'm using is working. :)

Tonight's hair goal: Merida from Brave. How'd I do? Please excuse the tired eyes – it's bedtime and I don't have any makeup on.

The chevrons are starting to be more visible! The orange is @lionbrandyarn and the grey sparkle is from Caron. And yes, those are Doctor Who leggings. #nerdalert

Crocheting orange chevrons tonight. Prince Charming picked the yarn – @lionbrandyarn Vanna's Choice in Goldfish.

This one may not look like much, but it's a wool-silk blend from The Wool House and cost more than all the others combined, even after the gift card I won. Great purchase while at the @originalsewing Expo.

This is not helping my not-a-morning-person self. Who wants to get out of bed when there's all this snuggling going on?

Bad Velcro! And on the rare occasion I'm wearing non-skin-toned nylons, too. Grr.

Finished hat, pre-blocking. It's a beret/tam style, so will look quite different after blocking. Hand dyed yarn (purchased on etsy), cables and lace. Not in love with the design, but it's OK.

Picked and ate this baby yesterday. Delicious! Prince Charming is quite pleased.

Oh, and the cucumber harvest is getting ridiculous. I'm not complaining, just need to get to pickling. Bean plants haven't stopped yet either, though I thought for sure they were done.

I have legumes! Vermont Cranberry, to be specific. Aren't they beautiful? This is maybe half of them – the rest are still drying on the vine. And the black ones have a ways to go yet. But one of these days, we're gonna have chili with these beans.
