Seeking to both become one of the lovely things and to put my mind on the lovely things, keeping always eyes upon God. First to please Him, then to please husband, and then to show goodness and peace to the world around me.

You know I've promised to get some color-not-blue into my wardrobe? Well, I had the opportunity to get out of the house for a couple of hours, and I had a Joanne's 40% off coupon in my hot little hand... so I trotted off and bought lining fabric for the hot pink linen I got online (it was not HOT pink online, it most certainly is in person).
So, soon I will have a hot pink skirt. Not sure how I feel about that. The good news is that the lining fabric I picked up, which is Joanne's basic line of colored plain cotton, was MUCH nicer than I remember, once I got it washed. I might have to go back and get some of this for shirts or something, it's worth using on its own. Can you tell how plushy it is, from the picture?
I like the blush pink, too. Very flattering. Much more so than that hot pink! But I did promise - and I'm going to make it a length that will look like an outfit with my long petticoat, which will alleviate some of the pink... hopefully.
