Small woes, big skirt

I moved on to the skirt of the dress I'm sewing, finished sewing it - did not attach it to the bodice yet - and realized it's HUGE.  Like maybe 6 sizes too big.  I have no idea why.  The bodice fits perfect, and yet the skirt is just hilarious.  Luckily, it will be really easy to alter.

The Brief Wondrous Life of Oscar Wao remains awesome, keeping me up way too late at night.  So far there have been four different sections, narrated by different characters - two about Oscar, one about his sister, one about his mother.  It's captivating.

White Sox lost tonight, but the season opener was fantastic - a shutout, and Mark Buehrle pulled off the neatest play - throwing the ball backwards from between his legs, and Paulie caught it.  Great.

  1. Yes, Buehrle has won his first two starts and pitches again today. Not sure what time, maybe we can watch a game together this weekend!
