This morning we had a late start thanks to what I hoped was going to be my last ever* surgeon's appointment since all the drama of 10 months ago. I knew the surgeon would need easy access to check on my ginormous abdominal scar, so I wore a top and skirt rather than a dress.
This is actually the first Simplicity 2938 I made, right in the middle of Self Stitched September last year. I am rather fond of it - it's fun and it goes surprisingly well with my third favourite cardigan.
It was raining heavily this morning, so no outdoor shots. Instead we chose my half-painted kitchen. I need to put a second coat on those doors and find some appropriate door handles.
The first coat of paint was done in October.
I generally avoid all housework before midnight, but I had to break up all that red with some pine-o-clean green.
And guess what?
I just have to handstitch the hem, and we're right for washing, pressing and horrifying my mother-in-law when she arrives on Friday. Because OMG! It's not a floor-length ball gown!
* Unfortunately it's not my last visit. My surgeon wants to "close the loop" with more scans and blood tests, but come June I'm hoping she'll be apples and I'll get the final clearance (although I may need more surgery on my scar, but that's my choice). Oh I have plans for that happy day, when it comes! In the meantime I'll just continue enjoying every day.
