You are not alone in finding Marfy's fabric suggestions confusing.  If you are looking at the catalogue, there are descriptions in French and Italian too.  Sometimes the French gives me a better idea of what would work.

I come to Stitcher's Guild and I think my fit is terrible after looking at the beautiful fitting garments sewn here.  All I have to do is go out grocery shopping and observe what people who shop RTW have to settle for and I find that my clothing fits great.

I believe news woman are directed in their clothing choices and many may be dresses by a designer or company - read the credits at end of programs - read cheap in many cases.   PBS has been running a series of articles called Makers plus a few other documentaries  + our Canadian National Public TV a series of lack of change our common parliamentary issues.  All report on women's frustration on their male counterparts or directors sexualizing women's clothing.  Apparently those in the "know" believe they know what viewers and colleagues want to look at.  I became active in 'the women's movement' in the mid - late 1960's.  While much has changed, much more to be done.

While this is a different discussion than started here it may affect what we see. I think poor fitting garments are part of the overal trend of cheap clothing (available and disposable) preventing people from knowing what is well fit. I do fear, in spite of some public protests, that this will become the norm. I have always been well dressed and make sure things fit, but I once had a job that required home visits to poor people with health problems and frequently felt very over dressed in a simple dress.

Laurie, sorry the kids couldn't come today, but however disappointing it was, safety is really important.  Noble of your DH to offer to tackle those pies...

Jan, I gather your plumber is pretty good, so I'm sure anything he suggests will be good. 

Suzi, I'm glad your plumber found a way to avoid damaging the tile.  No way can anything that old be matched.  Heck, you can hardly match things from last month any more.

We'll have a quiet day tomorrow, since DD is working.  We'll all be at her place on Saturday, though, so everything is fine.

Happy Thanksgiving to everyone.

I just checked out the website and did a store locator - I'm in Ft Collins, CO - the local Sprouts and Natural Grocers have the egg nog.  Will have to pick up a quart.  A local dairy in a small town - Windsor - also has egg nog.

As to the MOB I like to share a true story.When my friend's DD got married for the second time the mother of the groom insisted she was going to wear a certain color dress,after my friend told her the color of her dress,her DD liked.The mother of the groom changed her mind more than twice.My friend could have worn the first dress her DD liked too.

What I really don't understand is why the anchormen all still wear appropriate business suits and the anchorwomen all seem to dress as if they work at the mall. I can't remember the last time I saw a female on the local news dressed professionally. Many of the national female anchors seem to do the same. So much of the clothing seems so inappropriate that te bad fit just seems to go with the look.
My opinion too.  I recently sent an email to one of the cable networks voicing my opinion about it....it has been a few weeks and I have not received any response....not that I would expect one. ::)

My bathroom has tiles on the walls, but not the whole way up.  To get to the pipes to the sink, the plumber would have to break through them.  There's no way I'd find matching tiles, so I wasn't happy about that.  But they found a work around.  They drilled holes in the floor and brought the pipes up that way.  They could access the pipes to the tub by taking out a section of plaster above the tiles.  And the toilet backs up to a closet, so they broke out the wall in the closet, leaving the tiles intact.  All of this was possible because I have a one-story house with a crawl space for the pipes.

Carole, imo, you will look lovely in a very gorgeous morning wedding mog dress. You wear you dresses a little longer than this, so you and the MOB will blend beautifully. Please dont make anything for the wedding except for your dress.
