I didn't do much of anything today but at least I took the pattern sheets out for both patterns and ironed them flat and now they're sitting there ready to be adjusted. The fact that I haven't actually cut the pieces apart or made any adjustments to them is something I'll ask you to ignore just now :)
This is a long weekend for us here in Canada and since we have no plans we're looking forward to just hanging out. It was supposed to be rainy this weekend but I think the only day we might get rain is tomorrow and then after that it's going to be warm and sunny. If we do anything other than a couple of errands, it'll be going for a walk in a new-to-us area of the city. I expect that Ian will play video games for most of the weekend while I work on my patterns.
Did anyone else see in the news that some scientists have been able to create a synthetic bacteria by creating and inserting DNA into an existing bacteria? Not everyone thinks that this is good; they worry that the technology will be used to create bioweapons or something. To me, this ranks extremely high on the coolness factor - I think this discovery is awesome! They're creating news life, here, almost. It's not the same as having life emerge from a chemical soup, but this is definitely a step towards that, and there must be good possibilities for this and subsequent technologies.
