On Saturday I made a fox from a star shaped plastic canvas. He will go inside an art tree I’m working on called “The Slow Extinction of Humans.”
Sunday I barely got any sewing done. I worked on the background of my skull and that was it. The skull is also part of a tree project.
Monday was a lot more productive. I mended a ripped seam in a pair of pants, then put a patch on my husband’s cap. He ripped it while doing land clearing for the neighbor. The cap actually went under the tractor, and I am amazed the damage wasn’t worse.
I worked on my doors for my cityscape quilt. Monday is when I work on show projects. It’s also the day I clean the living room and that’s why I mended clothes- they were laying beside my chair.
Tuesday I didn’t do any sewing because I was still trying to get class schedules for the boys. Only one was ready. Then it was time for boy scouts and Pre-K open house.
Wednesday I didn’t get much done. I did a little more on the skull background and that was it. I think I did two more rows in between signing permission slips and filling out contact information for teachers.
Thursday I almost got the skull done. So close, yet so far away.
Friday, I moved my sewing machines.
The big cabinet was right here and I kept smacking into it when I got up during the night. If I run into the treadle, I only bruise my hip, instead of my hip, my knee, and my foot. So far I haven’t walked into it. Because it’s not as wide, I guess.
Saturday, I started working on the back of my grandson’s wolf. This was done in the car as we ran errands. It was slow going because despite how smoothly the truck runs, it’s nowhere near sitting still in the house. I’m also limited by space and what supplies I can carry with me. I thought more blues would look good, then I thought maybe the background should be gray, but I didn’t have those yarns with me.
Sunday, I tried to finish the errands we didn’t do on Saturday. I didn’t bother packing a sewing project because I knew I would be driving. I correctly assumed I would be hot, irritated, dirty, and not wanting to do any work that requires concentration.
And now the week is over. I didn’t get to work on my most pressing projects. I have ideas still undeveloped. I am sure I have forgotten something important. Maybe next week will be better. Linking up to Nina Marie’s Here.
