I don't usually make a fly shield when I sew pants, but I made one for this pair and then ripped it out. It's just too thick for my taste, even made with one fabric piece and one lining. The fabric I used, a wool blend tweed is maybe a little thick for this. I think I'll stick to leaving them out unless I am making jeans, if I ever get to them!
Next up the knit top to go with these and then the cardigan.
Alex is coming home from Korea December 2 and I am counting the days. We both really miss her but she won't be living here again. She'll be with us for about 2 weeks and then we will drive down to Roanoke so that she can finally meet her nephew and meet up with her boyfriend. Then it's off to Austin for them where she will be living. She is dreaming(literally) of the brick oven Italian bread from the local Italian food store because it doesn't have milk in it(it's also fabulous bread that gets trucked out from Brooklyn 7 days a week) Bagels are on her list too and she wants a bagel and lox waiting for her at the airport. I'm sure that her father will be happy to oblige her.
I haven't posted a picture of Jakob in a while and he's 9 months old already, can you believe it? I am counting the days until we see him again too. He and his parents are coming for Thanksgiving. Seth even found a high chair at a garage sale for Jake.
He's got 4 teeth now and loves feeding himself, especially if it's from Mommy's plate. Of course I think that he's the most gorgeous baby. Edited: Apparently I've lost count as he is now 10 months old. He'll be walking before we know it. He lets go when standing, so far he still lands on his bottom.
