I didn’t post yesterday as Sunday was a day away from home. We did some shopping and went to visit with friends that we haven’t seen all summer. It was a fun and relaxing day.
Yesterday was exactly the opposite. It was a full day and I was tired at the end of the day.
I finished up the vest and it is ready for the bling. This vest is a half meter easy to make vest that I can sew together in no time flat.
Then it was dress trying on time and everything fits fine. I will now cut out another dress, finish up a lining, and be busy for the next 8 weeks.
So, to add to the pot, I cut out a leather vest using the above pattern.
I have an edging to put on it and then it will be blinged up. I won’t be doing much more on it until Thursday.
Between all the sewing flurry, I had to help the Spousal Unit move the zucchini race track outside so he could finish it up ready to paint. When it was ready to paint, I had to help him move it inside his shop. Thank goodness we did as it is raining this morning.
I finished up the last dishcloth of the series I am knitting. The seed stitch is very nice. Next up is two tea towels that hang on the stove handle. The colour is horrid, it is a nice leaf green.
I hit the road this morning in the drizzle and ran 2.5 km in 33 minutes. I started again at the beginner’s pace as I haven’t run for 10 weeks due to the heat. It felt so good to be walking and running again and I arrived home happy with my accomplishment.
Today is a mixed bag of activities. I need to get a document of ideas up for parents to help their children learn while school is not in session. I have a meeting after lunch. I have an I should do list and may start on it. And if life goes well, I will start cutting the edging off some lace.
