Jammie pants for Thalia. She's supposed to go on a camping trip this weekend (although she has yet another bad cold, so I'm not sure that's going to happen), so we got out Butterick 3314 and some flannel that we've had around for ages (I think from Sewzanne's about 3 years ago). Cut a size medium, but added 3 inches in length.
This concrete was swept clean of leaves yesterday:
