This week was… it was a week. There was some wonderful stuff that went on – the HS band went to Disney, and we got to see DS the elder lead the band as they marched down Main Street, and DS the younger play bari sax and dance. The kids all had a great time and Disney redeemed itself to us (long story involving the death of my sister 9 years ago). Here’s a picture of DS the eldest leading them down Main Street at the Magic Kingdom:
Of course, the week was bracketed by awful events here in Boston, which DH and I were home to witness. But the city is picking itself up and healing, as Boston is wont to do. Life will go on and things will go back to normal for most of us. Thank you all for your kind words of support. I can’t tell you how much it means to me that almost everyone seems to understand. We’re in this together.
So next on the list are a couple of mundane projects. I made a scarf of the leftover Milly cotton/silk voile, which I planned to hand-rolled-hem on the plane. Alas, I packed the wrong thread. I had two spools of identically colored tan thread, one of which was jeans topstitching thread. Guess which one I packed? So I’ll finish that this weekend. The other mundane project is hemming some curtains so they don’t get caught on the window seat in the family room. Then I’ll figure out what to make next. BTW, here’s a picture of the Milly/Burda top on the hoof:
Thanks again for your support. Happy sewing to all, and to all a good night.
