Spent the morning/afternoon at the American Kite Association region 6 kite festival/meet in Clear Lake, Iowa.  Very nice day, although it was a little odd to be walking around on a frozen lake watching people fly kites.  I'm sure everyone raised in the south thinks we are all crazy...kite flying in February, on a frozen lake nonetheless!

This is the beginning of the lining.  I finished the sleeves and shoulder pads for the outside, and now basically have to repeat the process for the inside.  Least it means I don't have to finish all those seams!

Got the collar and one sleeve attached...the second sleeve looks likes it is on, but it is just kinda hanging out on the table.  Wasn't actually going to baste the sleeve in (horrible of me, I know), but apparently forgot what stitch setting I had the machine on, and wound up basting anyway!  Serendipity corrected my laziness!

The jacket in progress, little more like a vest right now, but I still need to iron and cut the lining fabric, so I was trying to get some of the pieces sewed together to make it easier.  But, I will say, plaid is a bitch to sew, especially when the fabric is a little stretchy!  I either have to be a little less picky about the pattern matching up or cut each piece one at a time, matching as I go.  Makes you realize why those nice couture items have great matching plaids and a price tag to match, while the stuff you buy at Walmart looks like shit, but you can afford it!

Its been foggy and cold for a few days, but today we had a little bit of hoarfrost all day, not a enough to make everything look like someone flocked the outdoors, but enough to make dead stems interesting.

Poor kitty...we had to take him to the vet to fix a hematoma in his ear...so now he's sporting some really weird ear jewelry!  Hopefully it will heal well.
