The Rugby Skirt

Thank you all for your lovely comments on my last post.
I think its a good idea for me to stick with my tried an true patterns for now.
So I made this skirt from trusty old Butterick 5539. Really, what else could I do with this fabric?
Dust the furniture?

A Life-Changing Event

Dear Readers:
some of you may have noticed I've been absent for three months.
I went into the hospital August 20 for what should have been routine gall bladder surgery.
And I had a stroke.
I'm doing pretty well, Thank God. If you met me in person you probably wouldn't even know it happened.
I've had some excellent physical therapy.
And psychotherapy for the crippling depression an anxiety. That's getting better now too.
I am still, however,  dogged by Chronic Daily Headaches , which I've struggled with now for 15 months.
It's one day at a time for me.
I have sewn a couple of things, one I will show you later this week, the other was a total wadder.
