Luckily, it was warm enough that I didn't mind taking off my top two layers of clothing for a couple of photographs.
I love that my camera has enough of a wide angle to take halfway decent self-portraits without a tripod... Afterwards, I wandered over to the Holocaust Memorial to take some more pictures.
I'm a little sad that I had nobody else with me, because it's a pretty cool place for portraits...
It seems that I won't be able to finish the projects I wanted to get in before going traveling (meaning, the linen trousers and a black pair of trousers and a blue pencil skirt), as I'm leaving for my parents' the day after tomorrow. I'm taking my half-finished fleece cardi with me to finish at home, though, because I'm pretty sure that I'll need to use it a lot...
At least that way I know what I'll sew first when I get back... ;) I'm so going to need trousers for Me-Made March!
I'll leave you with a picture of my self-stitched/refashioned going-away-science-fiction-costume-party-costume. Not a full body shot, and I started making it 3 years ago for another costume party. The top is hand-stitched (I didn't have a sewing machine back then) and I had the glorious idea to stitch a cotton woven fabric onto a knit t-shirt and skirt to get the Star Trek skant uniform look... But I love the look of this kind of uniform, so I'm definitely going to make a new and improved version (from knits *or* wovens only, this time!) for carnival next year!
And look, I have spots! I'm a Trill...! (Ok, over with the sci-fi nerdy talk already...)
Have a good week everybody!
