Well. Didn't mean to disappear from the internet so completely, or for so long, but at least I have some good news for all the insanity of the last two months. I'm going to be going back to work for amazon.com -- I was really sad to leave them 3 years ago to come east to help out with Ana and the other munchkins. Now I'll get to do both, which is wonderful. Can't believe how lucky I am. Hooooray! I first started at amazon in 1999, and most of my friends still work there, so this is very much a homecoming that I'm thrilled about.

I also made a pair of pants last month, to wear to my interview, from BWOF 10-2008-132. They fit wonderfully, but I don't have any great photos of them on me. This pair was very easy to adjust for a sway back- I want to make another pair, with some pockets, so I'll have to adjust the pattern to add some. Here's a not very good photo of them on me:
