Pictures are ordered...

I took Pastor N's coat to him yesterday; he put buttons on it last night and it really doesn't look *too* bad. He's pleased, so that's what really counts.

Unfortunately I wasn't able to get a photo of it actually *on* him, and a picture of a black coat on a hanger isn't really post-worthy. But I have requested photos of the finished coat on him (he will be wearing it this weekend), mostly so I can post about it over on Pattern Review and warn everyone about the pitfalls of the draft.

But, for your amusement, My Sweet Baboo did snap this photo yesterday:
The photographer assured me that you could indeed see the point of the whole thing in that photo...that The Actor is now about 1/2 inch taller than his mother...but I really can't say that I can tell it from that camera angle. I guess we'll just have to take his word for it.


  1. I remember wanting to be taller than my Mum - I think I squeaked by her somewhere about grade 7. :-)

    There's an award for you on my blog.

  2. Yes, my teen son passed me recently and doesn't let me forget it. Lots of "shall I get that for you Mum, seeing as I'm taller..."

  3. Maybe you could wear your hair higher? Bigger heels on your shoes?

    My Mom used to go around pushing down on the top of our heads; didn't work... I'm 4 inches taller than her!
