GF suggested we should make a pact to each write 300 words/day starting tomorrow and now my chest feels too tight because writing?!? I-I don't know if I can do that...

Then there was a lovely documentary about that Triangle factory fire. Especially cheerful when one thinks of the recent factory collapse in India that had a 100 times as big death toll and basically world only gets shittier. And then people die. But yeah, no news there.

Something more positive... uh, Town Called Mercy was actually pretty enjoyable. I mean, New Who that is not raeg inducing and/or confusing??? So I guess that was something. Also here's to hoping my still lurking headache will actually be gone tomorrow. Maybe I'm spoiled but two days seems a bit much to me.

Also in other news, thinking of making (or having my mom make, we'll see) a cape for next autumn. Just need to find both a nice pattern and fabrics which might be a bit tricky, especially the pattern...

Ideally, I think I'd like it in brown (reddish brown would be especially lovely) tweed with a more colourful lining (dark purple or blue-green). But I don't know how much those would cost, and I do have an old navy fabric with lighter blue pinstripes that's not perfectly what I want but... acceptable. I guess. But I'm not sure what would be a nice bright lining colour for that? Dark red maybe, but that's a bit meh. (I also have some silver satiny fabric that might be big enough. Kind of boring, but if the top fabric is blue anyway... idk)

As for style, depends a bit on whether I indeed find patterns and what sort, but I'm thinking about wrist/waist-lenght with arm slits (open all the way down?). And probably attaching at the middle with buttons or clasps, although I keep seeing this sort of side buttoning and thinking it looks rather nice. Buuut if we end up winging the pattern that might be too tricky. And maybe less easily adjustable?

Meanwhile, looks like Sixie's coat had a baby with someone's cape...and/or a throw blanket. Some wild night there.
