I've cut out some more trousers from New Look 6216 though I've done quite a few alterations this time, so have to see if I like the fit even more than before.
If so these will probably become my new TNT trousers and the plus is they are really easy to sew up. The pocket is one single piece and is super easy to sew. I have lots of suiting fabric trouser lengths in the fabric resources which could be great in this pattern.

Gerrymandering is a national disgrace as the courts are finally taking note.  Thanks to former Texas Republican Congressman and convicted felon, Tom Delay, candidates picked their voters; not voters picking their candidates.  This year Texas has been ordered to redistrict to eliminate the scandalous level of gerrymandering. Delay and his ilk, especially the legislatures bought and paid for by the Koch brothers (which is the majority of state legislatures in the U.S.) spent the last 20 years gerrymandering the country in the most blatant ways possible.  Elections in this country are decentralized; every state does it in their own way.  That's why the Koch brothers were so brilliant in their efforts by focusing their efforts on state legislatures.  State legislatures which control election laws and districting.

So folks, don't ignore those state legislative elections and VOTE!  Better still if you can, run for office.  Contrary to conventional wisdom, it's not always about money.

When I saw those kids in Parkland, Florida stand up for what they believe, it was thrilling.

If the a-hole in the White House and his rapacious cabinet with their private jets and custom-made dining tables, gets rid of Mueller, and the Republican majority in Congress does nothing, the mid-terms must take both Houses Democrat or the country is doomed.  What I don't get is why Paul Ryan, who is up for reelection isn't in trouble.  He is despicable.

I agree with you, Debby, on cold shoulders.  I only have one, a long dress I purchased for my 50th college reunion two years ago.  It worked very well for the festivities and then I wore it to a dinner party the next week.  I knew no one there and somehow I felt the dress was empowering.  Silly me!

I think that the political situation here has awakened the latent political activism in many people.  I’m not sure compulsory voting would ever happen here, nor do I think it would solve any issues, but we’ve had very low turnout for years, for very understandable reasons.  Electablility has become equated with the campaign $$ raised and that money doesn’t generally come from the voting public, but instead large corporations.  There are many situations where voting districts have been carved out specifically to affect the vote and voting has been made so difficult for certain segments of the population that they really have no voice.

I really like the cold shoulder look and the many variations available.  I've worn the style frequently and find myself attracted to the new patterns but then I've always liked sleeveless garments in the summer time since I don't tolerate heat well at all.  For some reason I feel very elegant in the cold shoulder look.

Yesterday DDIL and I were wandering in Ikea looking for office and bathroom organization items. We found peg board and the attachments which I will get next month for the sewing room. One board will be for the embroidery hoops and the second one will be for scissors, and other items that are placed around the room neatly but which I love in one spot. A small one may be bought for an inspiration board so I can clip ideas up on it. Looking forward to having that project done in the sewing room.

The girl's Easter dresses are done to one button which I will get before Easter.

Both have new shoes to wear. Anna wanted to stand on the chair arm for the next picture.

Anna got a new necklace to wear with her dress.

Next up is black capris leggings and cotton tops to wear on the Easter weekend.

Thanks vtmartha.

Sorry I failed to say that the thoughts expressed here are in line with what we've been thinking here in Oz about your President. We have also been very concerned about what might happen with North K.

Is it any wonder that people have become disillusioned with politics?

I think the media has a lot to answer for though. Especially here in Oz, the media seem to focus on any scandal involving any of the politicians instead of holding them accountable to deliver on their election promises which is why we elected them into office. Maybe I'm just getting cynical in my old age.....

As an aside, voting here is compulsory which I think is unfortunate. So many people here are totally disinterested in politics and really don't put much thought into who they vote for. I'd be interested to hear if you think you get better election results when voting is not compulsory.
