04:27 pm: Just like rainy season, but with stronger winds
It seems typhoon season is getting underway. We're currently being brushed by typhoon #7, so it's gray and rainy. It was also somewhat cooler than usual, so I took the opportunity to sew.

I'm making a yukata for wednesday_10_00 out of this bunny fabric she picked out so that she will have one that (hopefully ^_^;) fits better than standard Japanese sizes.

I started off, as usual, by making a collossal blunder. I accidentally cut the body panel in half at the shoulders. ~_~ Ah, well, at least the damage wasn't irreparable. I sewed the pieces back together where I cut them, and luckily I noticed the error before I did the same thing to the sleeves. It will have an extra seam at the shoulders, but hopefully no one will notice.

Aside from that, I managed to plod along fairly well. I probably would have made more progress if it weren't for the perfectionist in me saying, "No! That's two millimeters off! I have to measure again..." So far I've finished the sleeves. I'm hoping to get a lot of the body done tomorrow.

We ended up driving through typhoon Dianmu last year thanks to being in Kyoto and needing to be in Tokyo. It was all a bit scary, especially since our command of Japanese was limited to say the least, and all we could see on the weather map they were talking so animatedly about was a big typhoon icon in between us and our destination... Heh heh, good times.

Hope you don't see too much of the typhoon where you are - at least it's cooler for you...

I'm lucky in that I'm pretty far inland, so I don't get much more than rain, or occasionally hail. I haven't had to worry about flooding or landslides.

Have fun sewing (I look forward to seeing pictures) and I hope the typhoon passes you by.

Rain, finally

We're getting a little bit of rain, too, at the last possible moment to save the crops. At least I hope the crops will be saved. With our high temperatures and droughthy conditions, we weren't sure the crops would make it.

The yukata is off to a great start. It's a really darling fabric. Good luck on the rest of it!

Thanks! I'm interested in seeing how long it takes to finish, now that I can work on it in a long stretch rather than an hour or two at a time.

You and I must be cut from the same cloth. ^_~

Me (many years ago): "Arrgggh! I missed an accent on that principal part, now I have to write them all out again!"
Me (now): "Arrrggh! I missed a stroke on that kanji AGAIN? Back into the unknown pile it goes."
