Day 242: Robe No More!

Day 243: Feeling Spotty Dress
Day 241: Things Happen in a Year.

Wow.  Thank you to everyone who left such kind words yesterday.  I’m touched and overwhelmed.  Thank. You.

Today was tough…physically and emotionally.  I began the process of packing a bunch of my stuff into bins and loading it into my lil VW Cabriolet.  The physical labor part was actually comforting.  I spent the day mindlessly folding, sorting, stacking, and moving.  You really can’t fit much into a Cabriolet, by the way.  It took several trips to transport roughly 30% of my stuff…which is fine, as I don’t have a permanent abode just yet.  :/

When I got back to my temporary home, I dug through my “To Be Refashioned” Bin and came up with this robe-ish number.

It's actually quite a nice robe...
I’m definitely a bit down, but I haven’t reached the “hanging out in my robe all day” level of pathetic just yet.  🙂  I decided to turn this robe into a fun jacket!

First a chop!

Then a Hem!
I turned that bottom scrap into a pretty head scarf.  It’s all a bit more matchy-matchy than I usually like, but I think it works!  🙂

Robe No More!
I like how my new jacket is longer in the front than it is in the back!

See?
Once again, thanks to all of you for bearing with me in this really awkward time.  🙂

Cheers!
