When running away to join the circus isn't an option
At the beginning of the month I had a few days off, so I did what I almost always do when that happens - I sewed something. I like to sew, and this year I've started an effort to draw down the stash of fabric I've accumulated over the years, so there is no excuse too small for me to start a sewing project.
Years ago I got a wonderful deal on twelve yards of lovely Three Cats fabric. Well, "lovely" may be in the eye of the beholder. While I love the indigo blue and the hand of this 36" wide fabric, I'm not sure that I'd ever wear big white polka dots outside the house.
So I made an apron, using an antique sewing pattern from my collection. I finished it just a few days before the eclipse, and while I didn't wear it on the day, it will be my memento of the eclipse of August 2017.
