Last week I got lots accomplished. This week, not much. So goes life some weeks.
I was at the doctor’s the 9th and again on the 12th. That really sucks up a lot of time especially when it’s 2 hours there and 2 back home again. Then I always feel behind once I’m home. That’s likely how it will be until we get my health figured out again.
I loved the feeling of having my Sheep Virtue for September finished so I decided to jump right into the October one.
I turned something on television and started stitching. I got this far and ran out of thread….Bummer! All twelve months of these use the same thread pack. I was out of the dark brown and didn’t have any on reserve. So I grabbed a pen and paper and made a list of the thread I need.
Then I pulled this project that I had previously been working on and picked it up again. I love the look of these but hate the constant thread changing.
I realized I am a couple stitches off on this but I am confident I can fudge it. I am definitely not pulling stitches. This is just a quick project that wouldn’t be out for display much anyway so I don’t mind if I’m a stitch off.
In the sewing room I pulled this fabric and made a pillowcase for Jody.
The main dark fabric is pretty cool. It’s a simple pillow case. I hope she was able to use it before she passed. I had bought the fabric some time ago with her in mind…I sure wish I had made it sooner. She so appreciated handmade gifts as she knew the work and thought process that went into them.
We have her funeral coming up this week. How hard.
The last time I saw Jody at the hospital and we told her she only had a few days to live, she joked with me wondering if there there were sewing machines in heaven. I told her if there are, I’m sure the machines don’t break down..that the bobbin doesn’t run out…that the cost is nothing. How wonderful that would be. She smiled and wondered if they would be gold plated. All I know is that if there are sewing machines in heaven, I hope she’s got a machine set up and reserved for me right next to her and we could have a sewing day when I get there.
I’m guessing a lot of sewing won’t get done this next week….that’s okay. It will be here when I have time.
