Well, we're all moved... for the moment!  Posting ought to go back to normal-ish pretty soon.  I've lost some weight since the last weigh-in... or at least my mother's scale says I have!  It may be a liar, but for the moment, I'll take it.
Current Weight: 135 lbs
At Last Weigh-in: 139.8 lbs
Starting Weight: 144 lbs
Weight Loss to Date:  9 lbs




 I went and got my hair cut on Monday (I'll blog about it soon!), and for the first time ever I was able to accomplish that 40s back roll!  I've never been able to get it to work on long hair, so perhaps a shorter style is the secret.  I couldn't get one side to look entirely right, so I piled on some silk orchids to hide it.  I think this will become a great go-to style for me for summer!


Here I am puttering around the kitchen in one of my housedresses making lunch.  I've showed this one on the blog before with a belt, so I wanted to show how much of a tent it is without one.  This pattern (Butterick 7139) makes a great pajama dress, and with a belt it's suitable for running errands and such... I plan on making another one out of a heavier fabric for next fall.
