At work, looking for an envelope in the office supply closet, instead found Kleenex boxes on three different shelves (horrors!) and 4 opened boxes of rubberbands. Oooh, it gave me a case of the monkey nerves. Scratch, scratch.
The next thing you know, stuff is spread all over the floor to be organized and realigned. Like goes with like. (Found these clear plastic boxes at Office Depot.)
Sigh, I am happy now.

The new serger finished the seam allowances. Yay!
Did not realize that I needed purchased bias tape for underarm seam so made my very own!
Flipped pattern back panel to match yellow tone stripe in center.
