lots of working.
& a little getting lost.
there were some presents...
(of the just-because sort)
and a new skirt, inspired by this pattern from BurdaStyle
I skipped the elastic on the posted pattern because a) I can't find any, despite the amazing collection of notions my aunt gave me and b) I like sashes. I initially made the skirt way way way too big. It's still a bit largish, but I like how it fits with the sash now. Maybe I'll take it in, maybe not. Either way, I'm wearing it to work tomorrow.
I also worked on another bedsheet-to-dress project, but again, it didn't turn out, despite my modifications to the original way I made one. Thankfully, this one's in good shape to become a very cute skirt.
In the meantime, I've been GRE-prepping. Three weeks to go! The algebra, though, oh, the algebra! I can do the problems and get them right, but it does not make any sense to me at all. None. Nada. Oh well. That's why I took dual credit Calculus in high school--it meant I didn't need it in college!
I'm off to linguistics in a few minutes. I hope you have something fun to look forward to, too!
