Interrupting the routine

(Retro skirt for sale on Etsy)
Life had become pretty much a routine matter with lots of hat sales on a daily basis, and I was at the cusp of feeling burnt out.
Then Sid started his early retirement basically from one day to the next. Which brought some changes in our time schedule.
And even though it never bothered me to get up early and go to bed not much later than 10p:m, the new "no time schedule" brought nice changes. But it took a few days to get used to them.
I finally got back into the habit of reading in bed again. Way past midnight.
At this point I am not picky and just read my thriftstore treasures, mainly American authors like Irvin Shaw, John Steinbeck, Sidney Sheldon, not too heavy, not too light.
But I have already a shopping list in my head once I will have completed those older novels.

And finally I found a way to use my beloved (and stored away) vintage double-knit fabrics. It's intriguing to make a pattern which is both easy, not too time consuming and very wearable.
Love, love to make these, and there are more in the line-up.
