And I’d think, “What’s coming to get me?!”
Nowadays, I hear things go bump in the night and I think, “What’s that going to cost me?”
We’ve had a slight problem with our bathroom. Ever since it was installed 11 years ago, there has been a problem where moisture would bead along the rim behind the tub, and it would cause the plaster to bubble about every other year. We checked for a pinhole leak, and there wasn’t one, and every plumber we talked to said to just repair the wall.
Well recently it started getting worse. DH repaired the wall, but less than a month later, the bubbling was back and far worse. So we took the wall next to the tub and the wall behind it out. There doesn’t appear to be a leak but we’ll get a plumber in this week. Sigh. It’s always something, you know? The good news is that we finally replaced the shed that got demolished by the tree last winter, so the snow blower, the lawnmower and the kids’ bikes have a new home.
I’m tracing off the Marfy pattern onto muslin. I’m taking my time on this one. I’ll make a full muslin and use that for fitting and adjustments, then I’ll take it apart and use it for the pattern. I’m also going to try to work up the Yves Saint Laurent shoulder treatment on this, per Claire Shaeffer’s instructions in her Couture Sewing Techniques book.
Georgene of the Sewing Divas took her couture class and was telling me about the shaping and support of the shoulder, and I really want to have my hand at it. This one is going to take a while but I think it will be worth it. Stay tuned, much more to come…
