The Long Dark Tea-Time of the Soul

We’ve entered that time of year when it’s dark in the mornings as I drop the girls off and drive to work.

It’s 8 am as I write this and the Sun still isn’t up.

We’ll get a short respite next week after the time change but it will only last a few days. Afternoons will be considerably shortened from now on until just after my birthday in 4 months.

To top it all off it’s also raining today which adds to the darkness. In the parking lot at Sofia’s daycare it was pitch black. Since it’s a brand new place they haven’t had time to lay down tarmac/asphalt and set up lights. I hope it’s a priority because the pot holes on that lot are crazy deep.

Last night I almost finished a pair of pants for Isabel.

They need hemming, but I had to have her try them on to see how deep to make the hem. I also need to unpick the waistband seam because I forgot to reset my stitch length after basting a seam line in the waistband.

After that I have elastic to put in and they are done! Isabel tried them on this morning and they fit beautifully.

The shirt will get snaps in the yoke because buttons will tangle her long hair and the yoke needs to be opened to put the shirt on.

I have more of the tan cord and I hope to stretch it into a pair of pants for Sofia as well. I’m pretty sure there’s enough material.
