     Well I completed another chart for the month of September so I was excited about that.  I will not be able to complete another as we will be gone.  But I will be able to get a good chunk of another is everyone picks up.  I don't plan to sew again until the 11th of October.  I still have a myriad of things left to do.

   I did get the last bride dress out and a hard dirndl alteration done.  I had to make two trips to Joanns yesterday as my brain was stupid. I really hope to be done sewing by tonight so I can spend tomorrow packing and tying up loose ends.

     One of our renters will be leaving us Oct. 5th so she is taking us out to dinner tonight.  Yeah no cooking. Tomorrow we leave right after I teach dance to drive to Spokane.  Our daughter will watch our dog so we don't have to board him.  She will take us to the airport on Thursday morning so we don't have to pay to park our car.  See I am already saving money on this trip. Hub's will pack apples and nuts, string cheese for our flight, so we don't have to buy airport food.

     I am getting really excited.  I printed out our itinerary this morning just to go over it.  This also calms my nerves as I can see that we are confirmed.

     I went over to my Lil sis's house last night so she could dye my obnoxious grey hair.  It gets frizzier and greyer by the month.  She does a great job and it only costs me about $7.00 in product.  I am lucky to have such a talented and well trained sister.

     Yesterday besides sewing, I changed the cat box, did all the laundry, actually ironed 10 pieces of  ironing and plan to do more today.  I make it a game every time I finish an item in the shop, or a pile I have to iron 5 pieces.  As yesterday was spent on two major items it was just 10 pieces.  Today will be a different story.

1. shorten hunting pants with zippers
2. shorten 4 shirts
3. replace zipper in motorcycle jacket
4. replace zippers in motorcycle pants.
5. mother of the bride

     So that leaves room for 25 pieces of ironing and I am sure I have that many.

Let's see if I can get this mess done so I can concentrate on cleaning house and packing tomorrow.

Have a great and productive day staying positive while you are in the negative.



  1. I have to play games to get things done sometimes.

    1. Me too--makes it a challenge, and I love a challenge. It's the competitor in me.

  2. I don't think I could every sew for the public. It would take nerves of steel! Brides's dresses, motorcycle zippers...ugh!

  3. I came and poked around enough to know I'll be back :-)
