We went to an IBM recognition dinner on Friday night. It was a surprisingly fancy affair at the Fairmont Hotel downtown. I came away with one of the centerpieces which smells wonderful. (Dont worry - I was actually given it - rather than stole it).
It was nice to get a chance to dress up although since it was about 100 million degrees I didnt actually need to wear the capelet. This is "Big Sisters evening Cape" knitted by Christina from a Stitchcraft pattern dated in the 1950s.
I did do some sewing myself last weekend. I made a bias cut skirt, but unfortunately my inaccurate measurement (and fat tummy) make this rather an unflattering garment.
