I've got to get back to finishing Irene's dress. I just have handwork to do, so I'll work on it while I'm watching Olympic hockey this afternoon. And yes, there will be pictures. Isaac decided he wanted me to make something for him, too, and suggested "a vest for dress up occasions" as he put it in an email. But he made it clear he doesn't want a dress. When Irene had her measurements taken, he had his done, too. So this morning Tom and I went shopping. I was surprised Tom wanted to come along, but I guess, like Isaac, he doesn't want to be left out. We bought a pattern, and fabric for the vest, plus a hat and sweater that I plan to embellish for Irene's outfit. Besides Easter, we will be going to high tea at the Brown Palace Hotel in Denver for Irene's birthday in April. So we'll all be having a "dressy occasion". I should make something for myself, but that just doesn't sound like much fun.
