Fleece Jacket Wearability

First, let me say that I received so many compliments when I wore the jacket on Saturday, doesn't it seem like the easier the piece the more compliments you receive and when you make something really complicated it doesn't generate half the buzz. The jacket is really warm, I mean really warm when I got to work I almost had to take it off and I'm pretty sure I wasn't "flashing" (I know some of you know what I mean, lol) but it was great while I was running around, back to Hancock for more fleece, it was half off this weekend, my DD wants one and I think I'm going to make one for my friend Gwen for Christmas. All of my friends on my second job requested one but that’s more than I am up for before Christmas.

The only complaint other than it being almost too warm to wear indoors was that while I was making the jacket I had to keep my can of Static Guard handy, it was very staticky, I’m sure you seasoned sewers will gasp but I almost never pre-wash my fabric (I can hear you gasping) I’m sure that would have prevented that problem. I highly recommend fleece and I will no longer think of it as only robe or pj worthy.

The house is clean, top to bottom, floors mopped, toilets gleaming and now I have to pack. My Mother always cleaned the house before going out of town, she always said you don’t want to come home to a dirty house, I agree and when we get back I want to put up my Christmas decorations, I LOVE CHRISTMAS, you’ll see…..

I didn’t think I would have time to post so I am going to wish everyone a wonderful Thanksgiving again. Enjoy and remember those calories don’t count.

You look great and inspired me... so I went to JoAnn's yesterday and purchased it and caught their $1.99 sale.

Have a safe trip and Happy Thanksgiving.

1.99 that's cheaper than Hancock's half off I think it was 4.00/yd. Good luck with your project I can't wait to see it.
