The after work routine didn't lend a clue to the destruction that was about to happen. I let the dogs out and coaxed Abby to bring the ball back to me.
Since I was wearing my newly sewn jacket - Simplicity 3962 - I thought I'd capture a few shots with the camera. The strong wind, however, was ruining my ever so cute do and making Sophia wonder if I was about to blow away. (BTW, the skirt is Butterick4859)
I decided to proceed knowing that I could always crop the bad hair away in Photoshop.
Eventually I discovered that if I sat down the fence blocked the wind quite nicely, so Sophia and I prepared to have our portrait taken. Abby quickly ran over to see if she was missing out on anything fun. You'll notice she choose not to give up her prized twig - one that the strong winds recently blew off of a tree.
That's when it happened.
I stood up, Abby got excited, and she jumped. (As you can see, we're still working on the OFF and NO JUMP commands.) No harm done, or so I thought.
We moved indoors where I removed my jacket only to discover... multiple white loose threads! All over the side that Abby had jumped on.
Grrrr. I sure hope I can fix it!
Now I'm wishing I hadn't bagged the lining on this jacket as it would have been so much easier to remove some slip stitches to get to the underside of this fabric.
