I'm packed and ready to go.

    It is late Sunday night and I am packed and ready to hop on the plane at 5:30 in the morning tomorrow.  As usual I thought I would have more done but well laid plans seem to go astray here.  Got a call right when we were sitting down to dinner that our cousins were still trying to finish up their move and were exhausted.  So we ran over when I was supposed to be cutting out another bridesmaid dress and basting it.

     We took three last loads to the new house filled the truck with cardboard and storage boxes and left it with them so they can take it to the dump all week long as they unpack.  Helped them unpack enough to live.  the three little boys were so tired and the parents were grateful.  Then back home to pack and get the house ready for the sitters.

     I threw together a bridesmaid dress yesterday.  It was a Vogue pattern but very easy.  It is just that the bodice pieces have to be cut our 5 times each.  I like to put interfacing on the inside of my linings and my materials, to give a really stiff professional look and then you don't have to where a bra if you don't want to because the back is low.  The sewing part took less than an hour.  Just have to hem the layers and put in the zipper.  I might put another underlining in the skirt.  We will see.  I have three more to go when I get home and wanted to get another cut, but that will have to wait.

     Our daughter #2 just landed in Seattle on the way back from Hawaii.  Her Wedding reception will be the end of October so we need to get working on that.  I will blog more about this fiasco when I get back.  Right now I am just happy to be leaving this smokey country to go see fresh air and my sissie.  We are going to get together with sluggy and who ever else wants to join the party in the area.

     Well I have hand work I want to finish on a regalia costume before I go to bed.

Have a great week I know I will!
