I still have the buttons to do on this bolero (black vintage glass) which I lined in a matching satin. This crushed velvet was a nightmare to sew with and I will never do it again. It kept slipping out of place even when pinned. My student cut one out today which is wool lined in a gold satin which will really be pretty. I will post that when she gets it together.
The boys new winter collars arrived today from this Etsy Shop. They have a glow in the dark band in the middle which is surrounded by another strip of reflective tape so these really can be seen in the dark. One collar glows blue and one green but the collars are on blue nylon wedding and have Velcro closures. They are very comfortable and have a small ring for their name tag.
Today is the first day we really had snow here at the house. It was going on while the window washer was getting all the high windows Bob can't reach. This is the last time for washing windows as soon it will freeze up.
It's 36 tonight and snowing, we have the wood stove going.
