The brit was on Sunday. I counted wrong, and traditionally the brit would have been on Saturday, but without a moyel in the community, this one drove in from Baltimore, it's hard to have one on shabbat. Jake was a real trooper,as soon as the Rabbi put his diaper back on after his circumcision he was asleep. Here are some pictures from the brit and at dinner afterward. My MIL will be 90 this summer and my bil and sil drove her up. Unfortunately it was just too much for my Dad to come up from Florida. There is no easy way to get to Roanoke and he just can't fly by himself anymore.
Josh and Seth Josh is wearing his bar mitzvah tallit(prayer shawl) and it was full sized on him back then. He's grown a bit.
NOW FOR MY DRESS
I bought this issue of Knipmode just for this dress; a selection of 3 outfits that Oprah was photographed in are showcased. There are no designers credited, so I think that they just drafted it from the photos. Sigrid and I are both of the opinion that the garments Knip drafts from designer patterns and doesn't publish a picture of their version leave a bit to be desired. They don't seem to fix all the kinks. I had to make a few changes in the draft on this, but on the whole I am pleased with the dress. I shortened it, and then didn't shorten the front ties. Woops. But, I like it anyway. It is a Spanx dress however.
Here's a link to my Pattern Review review.
I have a BWOF top to review that I made before this dress. I need some photos of that one before that can happen though.
Next up, wool pants, it's cold on Long Island! We got off easy the last couple of winters and I was a bit spoiled by the warmer winters. Obviously, not this year.
