Okay, it doesn't look much different from the last time I posted a pic, but here's the finished top. Woohoo.
I'm bummed out for a couple of different reasons. One, I went back to the website where I bought my gorgeous incredible purple fabric that I was going to buy another 5 yards of, only to discover that they no longer have it. Aaaghh. I swear, the mood I'm in now, I'd buy 10 yards if it meant I could have it. Love that fabric. That's what I get for not ordering more right away.
The second thing is stinking Eurosport isn't showing much of the Giro d'Italia today. We've finally gotten to the Alps and it's exciting and difficult but nooo, I don't get to see it. It's on their secondary channel which we don't get. Not pleased about this at all. Yes, I've become a cycling fiend in my older age. Not riding a bike, heck no, just watching the big tours. It's a great sport to sew on my machine to. Poor Tour of Italy is the red-headed stepchild - no respect. Have to admit it's the first year I've watched and I've enjoyed it so far. Beautiful alpine scenery with bright green grass and snow and waterfalls and castles. And the shots of the coastline last week... Magnifico.
Watched "Igby Goes Down" last night. Think I'm going to give up on Independant films. All so angsty and mopey. This one at least had some humor but at the end all I could think was "what in the hell was the point of that?" Wasn't even all that entertaining.
Hubby and I have finished "Alias" Season 4. Loved the last episode (up until the last minute) - this show so needs Lena Olin. But where the hell were Sark and Anna? They could have made this show zing. Alias definitely went on the decline after the fabulous season 2. I'm hoping Season 5 really does a great job of tying things up. Not holding my breath. Don't give anything away - I hate spoilers.
We started "Rescue Me" Season 2. I love the show's sense of humor, but am hoping Tommy's downward spiral at least goes into a stall, if not improves. I like him miserable, not suicidal.
