Getting there

I'm almost finished with my skirt, all I have left to do is hem it, so I tried it on. I'm really happy with how it's turning out, and the waistband fits perfectly...perfectly! As you might have guessed that's not always guaranteed even on something I sew myself. So I'm very happy about that!

I tried it on with the brown boots I plan to wear with it and Colin said it looked very nice. I thanked him, and he proceeded to explain that he liked how the boots blended in with the skirt, and the shirt I was wearing looked nice too, but it would look even better if I wore a brown shirt, then I would match all over. "With the brown skirt, and the boots, and shirt, and your hair." Um...number one, I was not aware that my hair was the same color as the dark brown skirt. Second, I'm not going for a (feminine) UPS employee look. I'll wear all black, but not all brown...that's just too...brown. Although I guess there's not a whole lot of difference between all black and all brown.

So Colin approves of my new skirt and I'll post pictures of it when I get it completely done. :)

I just started it today. I've read it before but it's been a while, and I don't really remember it. I thought you'd read it?

Not yet...if you like it I might.

Hhhhhmmmm..... I'm trying to think whether or not I have ever seen a female UPS worker. Speaking of "THE BROWN," Scott's uncle retired from UPS as an accountant, so we have to be nice when we speak of "THE BROWN." :) (Just for details sake, this uncle lives in Farnham, VA now but he lived in Maryland when at UPS and worked in Landover, near DC.)

I have seen a female UPS worker, but she didn't look very feminine! And I like UPS.

Why all black? It'd make you look, hmmm, depressed or sad...
