This One's For You , Micki
Since I loved this jacket I decided later that I would put a new zipper in????? (You know how the best laid plans are) Well, I did purchase a new zipper ! BUT! then last Christmas I needed a green zipper for the jacket I made for hubby and AFTER it was all created and wrapped and handed off to hubby - that I realized that way MY zipper that I had given away! LOL
So, here it is cool weather again - just perfect for my lite weight fleece jacket and the broken zipper was still in there! I wore it one day walking and realized it was not to comfortable HOLDING my jacket closed against the Fall winds - so - I broke down and went to the store to get a zipper. Only to discover there were no GREEN zippers in town! BURRRRR - HUMBUG!!!!!!!!!!! So, I caved in and bought the only Brown zipper that was the correct size!!!!!!!!!!
As I sent up prayers to my "sewing zipper angel" I carefully tore out the broken GREEN zipper and carefully laid in the new Brown zipper - every stitch I took - I thought of Micki and pondered how it would be to Love to do zippers~ Well, IF I was as talented as she is - I might LOVE them too! LOL Maybe that is why God gives us friends - To inspireUs!
So thanks to each and all that I share this virtual world with - I reguard each of you as so special because you enrich my world and I love visiting with each one -what a wonderful world we all share!
