Alabama Chanin Corset - Done! Skirt on the Way...

It only took about 15 minutes to redo each armhole - I undid the binding over the front princess seam and took another 1/2" out from the middle front and side front pieces.


And I think using a larger size for the back was silly - it's too big.


Oh well, it's still going on vacation with me (20th wedding anniversary trip - woohoo!)


I need something for the plane trip besides knitting a sleeve in the round for 9 more inches, so I discovered I had about 6 red intramural soccer T-shirts from all the years the boys played.


And those are just custom-made for the Alabama Chanin "short skirt!" If this turns out well, it'll be the bottom half of my Mardi Gras dress.


One last thing: have you ever left your phone somewhere? I left mine in a restaurant by accident, but turned right around and went back to get it. They were cleaning up for the night (we were the next-to-last people to leave), and the waitress had it waiting for me. The next day I went to pull up a picture, and look what I found:


They apparently took a picture of the restaurant with my phone - huh?! Was it to be funny? I find it kind of ominous. Has that ever happened to you? (That made me think of the vacationers who developed their pictures to find the housekeeping staff used their toothbrushes and took pictures of themselves! I guess this could've been worse...)

That is weird. I would find it creepy too.

I dropped my phone at Target at the mall once and they were nice and saved it for me without photo.

My funniest lost phone story was on a Monday morning I realized my phone was gone. It took me several days to find it. I finally found it on a Wednesday in the pocket of a ski bib that I had tried on in the Academy the previous Sunday afternoon. I had looked all over when I realized that it was missing and thought it might be at the Academy but I went there on Monday and no one had found it. I would not give it up and went back on Wednesday to look again. That time I went around the area that I had been shopping calling my phone and listening for the ring. Once I found it, I remembered trying on the bib, calling Bart to come look at it and then sticking the phone in the pocket.
