65 Degrees!

Today was absolutely¬†beautiful! Than’s friend Jonathan spent the night, and when I got up I decided that we should all go outside. Unfortunately, it started to rain, even though it was quite warm. (Er, I guess that’d be because it was quite warm; can’t snow when it’s not freezing.) Thought our plans had been dashed- but by noon, the sun came out, and we jumped into the car with sandwiches and headed for Fort Williams!

We had a fabulous time. Even though we were by the ocean, the breeze wasn’t cool enough to require layers. We were running around in jeans and t-shirts! All four of us (Dad, Than, Jonathan and I) rockhopped for at least an hour, maybe more like two. I can’t describe what a wonderful day it was. The ocean looked like the caribbean- clear and blue. It was high tide, but we¬†found enough rocks. This is the Maine coast, after all! ;) I did manage to sit in a magnificent pile of poo. That was the one drawback, but it didn’t slow me down.

The other activity I spent the day doing was sewing. I’ve been working on a corset for a movie costume- my first corset drafting experience- and I quilted the entire thing today! My dear Dad gave me a rotary board and cutter for Christmas (all by himself, too. I’m so proud!) and it made the quilting so much easier! Up until then I’d been expecting to do it all with nothing more than a yardstick. It must’ve taken an hour and a half to do all the sewing, even by machine, but I listened to Mossflower as a book on tape and really enjoyed it. We stopped by Lowe’s on the way home from the beach so I could pick up some plastic cable ties- I’ve been tipped off that they make very good boning! And it’s true. They fit perfectly in my boning channels and are giving very good support!

I’ll post pictures when I can. :D
