Friday’s weather was something to behold. Until mid morning, it was a partly cloudy day. Then there was a light shower. On my way home from the city, it started to rain and by the time I got home, it was pouring. Our community had nearly an inch and the city had a bit more. Where we had no flooding, the city did due to the storm coming in fast and furious.
The water was running down our street quite well though.
As I arrived home to the heaviest rain falling, I had to park the Explorer in the carport for the first time. A tight fit but the only way we could unload the groceries. After we unloaded we stood outside for a half an hour watching the rain and the thunderstorm.
On Tuesday I got the storage room completely cleaned shortly after lunch. The walls and floor are clean and I am happy. I did open a box of fabric and look through it. A few pieces came out but a bunch more went into it. It went to one of the thrift shops in the city yesterday.
On Tuesday afternoon, I drew and cut out the little girl’s dress. The bodice has the darts sewn in both the garment and lining fabrics and the seams were serged.
I was able to start on the skirt. I drew it on the front section and then prepped the back pieces and pinned them to the front piece. I will do the same with the lining pieces and cut them all out together.
Once the skirt pieces are cut out, they will be serged and the dress can be assembled. I am looking forward to see this dress done and seeing it on the little girl.
My spare time yesterday was spent doing federal paperwork for a society. I am down to getting two birth dates and mailing it out. Maybe today, if not tomorrow. It was a lot of work doing the paperwork but I got it done.
Today I plan on working on the dress and washing more walls. I hope to finish the front entrance way. There isn’t much left to do and finishing it up will have just over half of the upstairs scrubbed. If all goes well, I hope to get the skirt pieces on to the bodice and the ties cut out and sewn. Maybe the zipper will get sewn in.
