Jenny's Dress, Cute Siblings, and Goaties

So I am almost finished with poor Jenny's dress.  I was able to complete most of the construction before leaving to record last weekend, and now only need to make a couple fit adjustments and hem it.  Hooray!  

Jenny and I are the same size, so I decided to model the unfinished dress for you.  Forgive the crazy angles and hat--it was early, and I was having a bad hair day. ;)

 The front: still needs some buttons and is pinned in a few places.  I really love the pockets and front pleat on this dress.

The back: sorry for the twisty-ness!  The back skirt has three panels, in case you cannot tell from this pic.  

 Ok, you can't really see the dress in this one, but I like how it turned out. ;)

This dress definitely needs a belt.  Without it is a bit, um, enlarging.  With the belt, it looks super classy.

 So on to the siblings and goats!

Yesterday Cael, Josh, Esme and I hung out with Dean and Truitt for awhile.  We had such a great time--especially Cael.  See how happy he was?

Beautiful Esme.

Cael wanted to sit in the hay.

Flint really wanted to join the party, but I was afraid that he would not be polite to the goats.  So he watched us play rather sadly from the other side of the fence.  If I were a dog person, I would probably feel bad for him.  However, seeing as I am not, and seeing as he and Claude decided to rip open a fly trap that was hanging in the yard yesterday and eat the nasty, death-smelling innards and get it all over their fur and smell up the whole back of the house, I do not feel particularly sympathetic.

Esme, Truitt, Dino

Cael got something in his shoe!

Goats are so wiggly--I don't know how anyone ever manages to get a good picture of one.  This is the best face-on pic I could get of little Truitt.  Cutie.

Kind-of a weird pose, but I thought this showed off Dean's lovely coat nicely.  I cannot wait to shear him in the spring and see what kind of yarn comes of that beautiful fiber!

That is it for today.  Gotta work on some pillows tonight, and then get ready for Thanksgiving!  Sky and I are in charge of the cooking, so we have a lot of prep to do over the next couple days.  I can't wait. :)

Have a fantastic day!
