While I sit here hoping Molly will return, I can show you the new jacket I made for Lilly. About a week ago I noticed that the feathers on Lilly's back were thinning. Evidently, she is Leroy's favorite. I pulled out Storey's Guide and found a pattern. She HATED it at first, still does I suspect, but at least she is tolerating it. I used a pair of someday-I'll-fit-into-these-again jeansand leftover scraps of elastic ( I don't throw away crafty scraps---I always find some kind of use for 'em!) so in essence it cost me nothing but a little idle time!
