We all went to see Miss Pettigrew, and I enjoyed it very much. The photography is sumptuous and the experience was like time traveling to the late 30's. It is very much a chick flick so I think the spouse was teetering on the brink of falling asleep, but the girls and I loved it. The girls and I also went to the Thai restaurant in town, and though they pronounced it not as great as the one where Abby lives, it was still delicious. Pork in Red Curry, my new favorite. Abby says we have replaced our late great Chinese restaurant with our love for Thai food.
I have been trying out my new pattern drafting software and have printed out a sloper. I just did not have any muslin or plain fabric to try out the pattern drafts, so, since I still have a little birthday money left, I went down to Joann's today and bought a bolt of fabric to use for this purpose. I have also started grading the Mexican Peasant blouse up to a larger size and quite enjoyed doing it. I am using the professional grading book I found at the book sale (by Jack Hanford). The butcher paper I bought works great for this.
Now I am going to go work on the pattern a little and watch The Last Detective, a British series I had never heard of but found at the library.
