First, I want to thank all of you for your wonderful, generous comments! I’ll admit I was feeling a bit down but who could possibly feel bad with so many encouraging visitors? Certainly not me. Thank you all!
So, what am I almost finished with? Well, I’m very nearly caught up with my work. I have been literally working day and night! I’m still working right now, trying to get a few last minute things finished as I’ve been called for jury duty tomorrow. Hopefully, I won’t be needed. I served on a jury for an entire week a few years ago. While interesting, it was a personal nightmare because I can’t sit still that long. I have two speeds: high and off. So, we’ll see. I just always wonder what’s going on with jury selection – I don’t know one other person who has ever served on a jury besides me.
Provided they don’t chain me to a seat in the jury box, I will be sewing on Wednesday, Thursday AND Friday – yippee! I am doing the happy-happy joy-joy dance right now! I’ll finish up my Sunshine Top and probably cut out another one. I’m headed to the beach on Sunday for four days. The hand-beading I have planned for the next Sunshine Top will be a good take-along project. I’m also going to try to get something cut out that doesn’t need a serger and take that along as well. My DH will likely be running back and forth to the restaurant so my Bernina will be my surrogate companion for some of the time. I no longer have a portable serger and don’t feel like taking *that* much stuff with me anyway. Maybe I’ll fit and cut out a shirt before I go and plan on making flat-felled seams. I know it sounds weird that I’m taking sewing to the beach with me but I’m not much of a sun-lover so my big Panama hat and I won’t be spending more than an hour or two on the sand with a good book. I’ll be the pasty one slathering 40 SPF all over herself – under an umbrella.
