After getting up early-ish for a Saturday, having our blood tests, and getting breakfast, I went upstairs to change out my spring/summer clothes with my fall/winter clothes. I don’t like my fall/winter clothing as much because the colors aren’t bright– brights are only worn in spring/summer. Someday, I’m going to change the fashion industry so that they can get over the color-thang, along with white shoes after Labor Day and before Easter. (Yeah, I know– good luck with that!)
That was, of course, followed by an afternoon of sewing. I’m working on a quilt for a small child that is due to be born in February of 2013. The baby will be my great niece/nephew of the fourth kind and will, I’m sure, be adorable. My sister (the mother of the father of the baby), her daughter (the father’s sister) and I are giving a baby shower in November. I’ll bring it with me but I won’t have it finished because the baby’s name goes on the back of the quilt and, obviously, I won’t know that until s/he is born. (I don’t think they’re going to find out the gender before it is born but they surely won’t tell me the name that’s been chosen until after s/he is actually here to receive it.)
Yes, the silly traditions we have, eh?
Tomorrow church and then more sewing. I love what I do, can’t you tell?
Oh, by the way, there will be more pictures up (new!) at some point tomorrow or Monday night– I took the last of the pictures of items that I have made up today, too. Things are really popping up over on Marcia’s Makings!
