Marguerite- The pattern is Simplicity 4081. Here's the blog post on it.

Next time you do a question and answer, can you please tell me how you manage to sew so much with so many commitments and other demands on your time and energy?I can't work out how you do it, so I figured you must know a magic trick.
susan has left a new comment on your post "Gifts for my son . . .": This is a serious question - when do you sew? You have a young family,work,chase bears and neighbours, your husband is away - so when do you sew? And another serious question, do you enjoy wearing what you make or is it more the making that you really enjoy? Your output is very impressive! Well done.
Mary Nanna and Susan- Sorry, no magic here. I'm a quick sewer, have pretty good spatial ability, and LOVE to sew. That, and I don't clean house. Nothing magic, sorry.

Lisette- It's my little secret until I order the patent red ones. I plan on doing that tomorrow. Bwaaaaa haaaaa haaaaa.
Alison has left a new comment on your post "Utilitarian sewing and go VOTE!": Can I ask a dumb question? (& no, that's not it LOL). What is "the slope"?
Alison- I forget that everyone doesn't know Alaska jargon. The slope is the northernmost coast of Alaska. If someone says they work on The Slope it means they work with oil. Crude oil to be exact. Well, that or natural gas. You can also be a "sloper." He works two weeks on and two weeks off, hence the blog title. It's not a knitting reference but a nod to my time management. When he's "on the slope" I seem to have a lot more time to do things. ETA: It's a two to three hour flight each way and costs the company about $800 to ship their men up there.
designdreamer has left a new comment on your post "What the heck is it?": I'm so confused. Do you have 4 pair of binoculars????
No, we only have one pair but the FIL commissioned me to make multiple cases.
I will post a little ditty about how I do the top of zippers the next time I put in a zipper. Oh and I'm embarrassed to say that several of you have given me awards and things and I haven't posted about them. I will get to that tomorrow. Sorry! I *do* really appreciate them!!!!
