Finally finished my second fleece swing coat — the Halloween version.
Surprisingly, this second coat had more issues than the first. I thought the second time around would mean a quicker project, but that’s not how it worked out. Still, I’m happy with the results. Again it’s not perfect, but unless you’re really looking, I doubt you’d notice.
The coat is warm, comfortable, and when I wore it to the grocery store this morning the clerk greeted me with, “Don’t you look festive!” That made me feel good. I had decided because of the difficulties this jacket posed that I wasn’t going to make one for Christmas, but before I write off the possibility, I’m going to let it rest for a day or two. I will need to make a decision soon though, as the stores are already starting to get low on their holiday fleece.
Another project off my to do list and into the closet. It feels great to accomplish a goal that was set last January and for this I am — Simply Grateful.
