I'm not sure what it says about me that I handed Rob a pair of fall front pants and he just puts them on without any thinking required....

I've been dying of consumption (ie cough cold) for the last week and I am SO ready to be over it. Today I finally felt a solid 75% and was off. I spent a lot of the day on the couch doing hand finishing on Rob's trousers. Hello HIDEOUS buttonholes. Should have just sucked it up and done them by machine.




The buttons are covered nickles, one of which Ellie was chewing on so it's nice and slimy.

Trying to focus on the now and not the horrible doom and gloom I feel like is looming just off the horizen. The worst part is I feel like he has tainted my beloved Orange. Orange is a color of happy.

Anyway [livejournal.com profile] mandie_rw very graciously let us invade for a sewing day (might have been more gracious of her Mom). I went with a billion little pieces of Rob's pants and came out with almost completely finished fronts. I got the fall pieces all bound, lined and sewn together. Did break my brain a little though...Must remember when I blog about this pattern to include the very helpful tip for myself in the future that there WILL be a gab between the bottom of the slit and the front waistband extension, it's okay it gets bound with the fall binding! I stressed waaaaaay too much about that. Overall they're very obnoxious and plaid.

I need to try and get myself to work on them more this week...but tonight I'm gonna knit. 12 hour days just wipe me out.

Oh and I had a nice facetime with my Mom tonight, she heads back to Ohio tomorrow to be 24 hour care for Gramps. It's not a pretty thing and I feel deep sadness that a man who so adamantly did not want to be anything but independant is wasting away...Probably not helping my over all feeling of impending doom. For all that I'm already mourning his passing and know it's coming I also realize it's going to completely blindside me.

(Look Amanda I tagged things)

So the halloween angst contiunes...but I found this pattern www.butterick.com/item/B3648.htm. I think it might work...Here's what I'm thinking...I'll start with the Jacket as that's the most difficult/important piece to the image...if I fail at everything but the jacket then Rob can wear a white shirt I'll buy at the thrift store with an ascot and his own dress pants...step two is I'll make the fall front breeches I'm LUSTING after thenI'll think about a shirt...that's my plan so far...I mean the time in my life to do menswear may have arrived......especially if i want to drag him to events with me
