It was another nice day in our community. We have certainly had a lovely stretch of nice weather this past while. Temperatures have ranged from the mid teens C to 20C.
Yesterday morning, after I washed floors, hauled out a pattern to see what I needed to do. I have one size traced out that will work and will compare it to another pattern for actual pattern size. Then, I laid out the pattern for the black creation’s lining. I then had to go to a meeting at noon.
After the meeting, I had lunch outside in the sunshine. It was lovely sitting outside.
I had to pack up a couple of boxes to send out. Halloween is coming. The Dude needs gifts. As we can’t send candy, we sent a book, a craft, and a gift card for lunch out on Halloween day on his way to the diabetic clinic. I then started to cut and sew the lining. It was going well until the Spousal Unit arrived with a parcel for me. It was the leather.
I was so excited with the arrival of the leather that I sewed one dart twice and one dart once with no thread in the bobbin. Then I couldn’t iron as the generator iron was out of water. Then I had to deal with tonight’s meeting being cancelled. But who cared. The leather was here!!
Life settled down when I walked out of the sewing room early. I just had to.
On knitting. I have about half of the cuff knit on the socks. All is going well on them. If I finish them tonight, I will have to figure out what to take to knitting on Wednesday night.
Today I will finish the lining and start on the leather. The leather means I am just about done. I am excited about that. I am ready for a rest and to start working on the house and yard. I need to clear my brain with some trivialities.
