It was a beautiful day yesterday, as in sunny and about 50. The pup was just naughty wanting to play and play. Here he is looking so innocent under the serger table, he is anything but, let me tell you. I had sewing to do and I wanted so badly to get it done as the littles are coming today.
It was mostly zippers and hems, Like 6 zipper and 8 hems. Zippers are hard and time consuming., I realized I needed a 28 inch zipper and the sun was shining, so even though I don't leave the shop during the day I decided to take advantage of the weather and go for a walk with the pup to get rid of some of his excess energy. Off we went and I wore a pair of tennis shoes that I have worn before and I have actually taught in them. I did not do the 5 mile loop as I was not sure pup could handle the distance , but that little bugger drug me almost four miles. I mean always ahead, he never seemed to tire and the pace was fast. Some how and I don't know if it was the pace, the shoes, the, socks, are my feet swollen? But I ripped the sh*& out of the back of my heels, Huge 50 cent piece blisters broken open. So I will have to be careful with what I wear for a while.
I dropped the pup off at home and went to Joanns to get the zipper. They had some of there really nice quilting material, 80 percent off plus an additional 20%. Sounds like free, but it doesn't work that way. Anyway $1.59 a yard. So I picked up a few pieces for aprons that my Sissie wants me to make and a quilt back for later.
I came home and sewed zipper after zipper, it took me most of the afternoon.
Pants hemmed Kim tired and cranky.
I have been watching the art of Tidying up ion netflix and I am going to try a few of her strategies. They look interesting. I love the idea of does this item spark joy in your life. I know I have many things in my wardrobe that do not spark joy and I keep them out of guilt. So I see another purge coming on. I mean clothing purge. I am going to try and get some box lids(free) and fold my socks different so they are not all spilling of of the drawer. Maybe my dresser drawers also.
Look at the house it went down almost $1200.00 with the last payment, I have not added my $1000.00 extra yet, but I will. So excited, it is really moving quickly now.
Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.
