Sorry about the ribs. Sometimes those get worse before getting better.
Send your O pants to Spike. He'll sow them back up for you in no time with his new "mad skills." We have one more local event for the season and after that I plan to send him a small bag of gear for repair.
Excellent suggestion! I have a suggestion for you in return: rather than send Spike a small bag of gear for repair, make it a club event and send him a big bag of gear instead! Once things leaf out and heat up in Kansas, what else is there for him to do anyway? : )
With Mary on her first international curling trip, the sewing room is all mine! I've got fresh fabric and a giant spool of draw string elastic. Instead of any exercise tonight, I cut out a new pair of O' pants.
Also, "once things leaf out" was a week or so ago. So now is the time to focus on sewing (at least until Mary gets home and wants her sewing room back).
