Thanks so much for coming along to the dental surgery with me while I had my root canal! Thank goodness I'd just found this new episode as I hurried out the door. While the nice people in their white coats did less-than-fun things I my mouth I focused REAL HARD on sewing that white shirt. I thought about where I had shirting in my stash, what patterns I"d liked, that old comfortable shirt I saved to use to remodel my tried-and-true shirt pattern. And buttons. I thought about buttons. Last white shirt I made was white linen and I covered buttons in white linen. The shirts holding up fine but that open weave linen wears off the buttons after 10-15 years of use.

While I've been down and out getting over the r.c. I've been listening to all my old favorites. I think I'm just about ready to try that idea of creating the tags for my stash. Maybe I'll think again about how I organize my tried-and-trues. And maybe I'll quilt that little shell I've got cut out.

Thanks for keeping me focused on the important stuff!

Great podcast, Lori! Inspires me to start looking for a pattern and fabric do make a white shirt too! Though, probably not until after Christmas. Looking forward to your next podcast!
