It's done! Sewed on the buttons and sewed down the facings while watching the Canada-US hockey game, then washed it, and it's laying flat to dry as we speak. I'll post more pictures of the inside once it dries, but for now I want to move on to something new!
I'm a 50-something electrical engineer living in Houston, formerly from Winnipeg. Our kids are all grown up so my husband and I live in a great neighborhood close to downtown in a not-so-empty nest with a dog and 2 cats.
