I spent a good part of yesterday in my sewing room and VOILA! My trench is finished and the weather cooperated by being rainy and cool today so I wore it to church! Complete review at PR. Here are some pictures of it.
You will see my brand spanking new briefcase in this last one. Ordered Tuesday, arrived Friday. I can't say enough good things about ebags.com customer service. Every order I have ever placed has arrived in 3-4 days. [ugh, as I copied the link, I saw that everything is 20% off today. Figures, I couldn't wait 5 days. Ever impatient.]
And since it's Sunday... a confession. At the end of Mass this morning, the woman behind me tapped me on the shoulder and said, "I just want to tell you your coat is beautiful. The details are incredible." In a fit of vanity, I blurted out, "I made it!" I was annoyed with myself but it was such a nice rush to receive such a compliment, especially from a stranger.
