This post would be better titled “Life Gets in the Way.” Last week I spent almost NO time in the sewing room. It was book club week (The Beekeeper’s Apprentice by Laurie King) and it took me a long time to get through the book. Then I picked Jen from school on Thursday and brought her home with a van load of stuff. Friday and Saturday we spent the day shopping for professional clothing along with steel toe shoes for her so she would be prepared to start her summer (paid!!) internship today.
So today I’m working on this:
It’s one of my least favorite things to do but if I take it to the tailor I catch flak for not doing any “practical sewing.” It really doesn’t take too long so it won’t be bad, but I am so ready to have everyone gone today so I can get back to quilting.
Congrats to our daughter-in-law Laura and her brother Eric for completing their first half-marathon. We went up Green Bay yesterday morning to cheer them on. She stopped by this morning before driving back to Milwaukee and she looked great—just a little sore! She’s been training for the past few months and it paid off. What a nice accomplishment for them!
