Not too much sewing has been going on around here, because we have been digging and planting and weeding. The picture shows the garden about two weeks ago, and more things have been planted since then. The weather has been weird – hot for a stretch, then cold and windy. Today it is hot again, but I think the plants like it.
When I am worn out from garden work, I sit down and sew in some of the hundreds of ends on the afghan that is nearing completion. After the ends are done, I just have to crochet the border. I also got a shock when I found out that the wedding my daughter will be taking part in is in a few days, and I didn’t have the three weeks I thought I had to do alterations on her bridesmaid dress. All I have to say about that dress is that the people who sewed it really were serious about it, because it was seriously sewn to stay sewn. It took forever to deconstruct so that I could shorten the straps on the bodice. But it is done now and on its way.
Next up is the last of the sleeveless tops, if I ever get around to cutting it out. The real reason that my sewing has lagged lately, though, is that I am rereading the Sue Barton Student Nurse series that I loved as a girl. Copies had disappeared from the local libraries, and apparently they are in demand because they had gotten so expensive to buy on used-book sites. However, some company has reissued them and I now own them all. Wonderful books, I’ll never get tired of them.
