Sewing and Baking

The Alabama Chanin top is going nicely. It took me forever to cut out the stencil but that is done and I have finished tracing it onto the tunic top. It was a little scary to use permanent marker but I took a deep breath and went for it. I'm glad I did because it will be easy to sew over it and not loose my spot looking for disappearing pen marks.
We are in rhubarb season now! Definitely my favorite spring food. I have already made a batch of lemonade and I think today I will have a pie making afternoon with Eliot. These rhubarb are huge! I could use the leaves as an umbrella. I couldn't toss them out after I cut them so they are sitting in the fridge until I think of a project. I want to try some leaf printing but I couldn't find any paper big enough! Might be a little ambitious.
Eliot, Kevin and I went down to the Old Port Festival this weekend. A cold rainy day. I got to wear my new leather hipster jacket that I got at the thrift store. I was worried I wouldn't be able to pull it off but I don't think it looks too conspicuous.

definitely like your new jacket! I need to use my rhubarb. I've had it for months and haven't baked anything yet this year!!! It's the amount of required sugar that scares me away.
