Catching up

It’s been a whirlwind of activity at the Little Yellow House. We had family visit for a few days (thanks, Mom and Dad!) and Kent is in the midst of a huge project for work that requires a lot of time in Canada. He’s spent his time in Toronto and Montreal and a week or so ago, I accidentally mashed the two city names together so now we just say he’s going to Moronto.

I have put my school plans on hold for a bit – we ended up with an unexpected tax bill and while we had the money, it needs to be replaced. So I’m going to do some consulting work for a while and then later this year, I’ll reevaluate the situation and go from there.

I have been a sewing monster too. In addition to the outfits for the grandkids (which I couldn’t have completed on time without Kent’s work on the boys’ shirts), I’ve completed a dress, a top, a skirt, a pair of pants and also managed to ruin a coat. Since my photographer is in Moronto, I don’t have a way to show you anything so I won’t do a proper write up about them now.

Sorry to hear you ruined a coat. My friend Iris' mother sewed everything, and I remember thinking that coats and swimsuits were the hardest.

As I will confess when I do a write up, some of it was my own damn fault. Oh well. Live and learn and use the seam ripper.
