 I worked on the gaiters pattern for a bit, got two canvas mockups done so far. I did the first according to directions, the second I modified, the third I think will be closer to the original with some modifications for easier assembly. I need to figure out how to use grommets and lacing for closure rather than buttons, but that shouldn't be too bad. Overall I'm happy with my progress, although I still have to figure out how to do the finishing on part of it. 

The steampunk overalls are waiting on the gaiters, because I'd use the same fabric for the gaiters as the patch pockets on the overalls. I even have the fabric for it. I even got the grommet press for finishing work. After the overalls and gaiters are done, I'll focus on accessorizing the outfit. 

This morning i hit farmer's market nice and early, got fresh eggs and tomatoes to go with the blood sausage for breakfast. Can't say that I'm a blood sausage fan, but I've honestly tried it. I also got the idea of promoting the zombie walk at the community booth that is present at the farmer's market. I emailed in to see if they have a late September date available, about 2 weeks before the walk. 

I found the missing racks for my smoker, they were between the stove and wall where I'd apparently put them for storage. Just had to drop a spatula down there to find it. Today I'm going to smoke up some leg quarters, which I should get started on if I want any done by dinner.
