It was beautiful day in North Garden. The long range weather forecast looks great for the wedding on Friday a week and one hour from today. Outside the grass is greening, the trees are budding, and the forsythia is blooming. I left the door open today and soft breeze blew through the house. The long cold winter has made me happy to greet Spring. I am almost giddy.
I took the dress to town to get the zipper put in today. I haven't sewn in a zipper in 35 years and figured that this is probably not a good time to practice so I put it in the capable hands of my friend Carla at Les Fabriques. She is a multi-tasker, she put the zipper in, helped a customer and talked to me all at the same time. It didn't take her long...I know that because I only put 2 quarters in the parking meter and there was still time on the meter when I got back in the car.
Look how pretty the scalloped edge matches up. All I need is to put a little hook at the top of the zipper and it will be ready to go.
