WINTER COAT CONSTRUCTION RESUMES...

...pin city - What more can I say???
I used an unbelievable number of pins to secure the front facing and lining to my coat.  All the layers together have created so much thickness in some areas that I'm thinking about switching to one of my heavy duty metal machines to get through it.  It seems that I'm moving at a turtle's pace in knocking down this construction list, but only 4 more items to complete:
.  interface hem areas
.  hem
.  make buttonholes
.  attach buttons
I have to call it's quits for today as I have to start preparing to return to work tomorrow.  I'll keep plugging away on my project throughout the week.  It's going to be a real coat one day soon...

  7. You know what they say Faye, "the best things come to those who wait"! I think your quote is going to be so worth the effort and time you put into it! Can't wait to see the finished product!

  8. I'm so glad you're working on your coat! Mark had to return to school today, too; it was hard to get up after 2 weeks off. Happy New Year, Faye!

    1. Yes, I really need to get this done. Expecting a cold snap the latter part of the week. Tell Mark that he's not the only one who had a hard time getting up this morning.
