Thanks Audrey for pointing out what was written in the small print on the back of that envelope - jacket wool crepe, pants gabardine. Didn't read line two and got all excited over nothing, not to mention the extra fabric I picked up today - it will get used so nothing really serious there.
I have students who do exactly this all the time, don't read the obvious " Hey professor what day is next Monday's assignment due?" but I am not 18 and my first semester away from home.
I've really got to clear the decks of life around here and get going on this project and calm down.
And Audrey you really were very gracious, thanks.
