And the gang's gone home

I can't believe they're finished already. I'm missing a large chunk of sidewalk, there's mud all over my street, but most importantly, I have running water. Lots and lots of running water, both hot and cold.
It feels so . . . modern.

In the 7 hours that they were here, I got into the workroom and finished off my BWOF 6/07 #126 pants (they only needed pressing and having their picture taken) and the BWOF 2/08 #122 tunic (hand hem, press and photo). These are the first two pieces in my PR 2008 Wardrobe, and I'm pretty happy. The pants don't look like much on the dress form, but they look great on and they feel even better! I may wear the outfit out to our belated Valentine's Day dinner tomorrow night at my favorite Italian restaurant.

I also got out into the back yard to do the cleanup I should have done back in November if I hadn't gotten too busy with Christmas sewing, organized all the laundry I'm doing later, and piled all the dishes in the sink now that I no longer have to use it to wash my hair.

And now, I'm off to take the world's best shower.

Holy cow, they're done already!?? Same day service! Unheard of! Of course, when the city comes to work on pipes in our neighbourhood, they have to spend two days thawing out the ground first, so that probably explains it.

That top is very pretty - the colors are really warm and earthy, and also, stripes are awesome. I have a whole bunch of striped fabric in my stash, but I like it, so I'm scared to cut it up. :)

Oh man, I can so relate. I had to have my line replaced in January and didn't have water for almost 2 weeks.
