All this is to distract you from the fact that my outfit is pretty meh today. I thought it looked nice in the mirror this morning, but I am less enamoured of it in my picture. What the hey, I am comfortable and perfectly warm. I do like the interesting little peep of floral cross-stitched silk skirt coming out the bottom. Ah well, you win some me-made days and you lose some. :)
I've finished my "wacky" project, and will wear it soon; not tomorrow, but soon. I'm pretty excited about how it turned out now! It is weird and wonderfully so!! Imo, anyway... :D
And this afternoon after I have finished my office work I am planning a little dyeing session, on another recently almost-completed project (wish me luck ;))
