[livejournal.com profile] cheesentoast and I are going to try and make me some clothes. To that end I need to figure out something about fabric. I've looked in a few places but it seems to be filled with stuff that's good for quilting but not clothing.

Where do you go to by fabric to make your clothing?

And I should have one too. The problem is that I have never been able to fit a hat properly. Does anyone understand that great mystery and can help me figure out what size I need?

Not only does REI have a wish list feature on their website they now have a simple way to search for clothing in larger sizes. Not fair!

I have had the same Columbia Sportswear coat for a long time. I don't remember what model it is but I picked it up at a fair in Kansas City years before I moved to the Northwest. The only problem with the coat is I need more pocket space and I lost the hood years ago so my head gets wet when it rains. So I've been checking out new coats from Columbia and other places. A fellow ham recommended the Tactical 4.0 System from SCOTTEVEST. It had all the features I wanted and a total of 52 pockets. 52! I hope it fits and is what I wanted. This is the first time I've ordered from SeV so I have a bit of concern. I'll know on Wednesday because it should be delivered then.

When I joined the American Radio Relay League (ARRL) again they offered a discount on their books. So I took advantage of the offer and ordered quite a few of them. According to the tracking information they should be delivered soon. Mmmm... Books... I don't know where they will all fit though.

Finally I sent off an email to the Redmond ARES Emergency Coordinator (EC) apologizing for dropping the ball on some tasks I had taken. I don't know how he'll react but at least I feel somewhat better for having done something.
