Storms in the night and storms this morning—and it looks as if it may storm again soon—it is that time of year I guess.
Many years ago I learned to sew—my Mom is an excellent seamstress having made wedding dresses, prom dresses and many bridesmaid dresses in her lifetime—so I got my talent honestly. I made dresses, lined and tailored jackets, and pants. When I began earning enough money as a nurse to afford to buy clothes, I stopped sewing except for the occasional project. Last year about this same time I bought 12 yards of fabric on sale for $2/yard—very nice fabric that the previous owner used to make high dollar clothing for the rich and famous around our area. One of my plans to use the fabric was to make a skirt., well, a year later, I have a skirt—a very simple, comfortable, easy skirt.
Got the binding sewn on my little wall hanging quilt and then spent the rest of the day loading my Aunt Marg’s Japanese Yen quilt.
I made some fabulous bread today—a loaf bread for sandwiches—thought I was going to have to hide it before Michael ate the whole thing in one sitting! It was good!!
Michael has finished our garage! I will post a photograph when he finishes moving all the cement mixing paraphernalia from in front of the garage—he is finishing the rock work down at our old house which he started last fall and should finish tomorrow.
The photographs are just some scenes from our morning walk.
