What a strange day this was!
I WAS going into the store to work today. I came upstairs to clean up my sewing room a bit since it looked like a whirlwind went through throwing bits of fabric and long pieces of thread all over the place.
Yesterday, it was 70 degrees and calm and just perfect weather here. I just ASSUMED that today would be more of the same. After all, the sun was shining brightly through my windows. So I decided to wear my finally-finished sunflower outfit. I put on the black top and the long sunflower skirt and then that necklace I showed you yesterday.
For some reason, I hated that necklace on me today! I felt like I was wearing a yellow and red lead pipe around me neck!
I took it upstairs and cut it apart.
Then I made ANOTHER necklace using the same beads and some chain.
I wore it for 15 minutes and decided I hated it too. I cut it apart.
I then decided to make a BRACELET and forget the necklace all together.
I finally was completely dressed and adorned and headed for my car which was in the garage in the garage where the weather was quite nice. Then I drove to the gas station because my new car is ALWAYS on empty -- or so it seems. I opened the door at the gas station, stepped out onto the cement, and I got slammed with a gust of wind that blew my skirt up above my knees and my hair nearly off my head, and it was cold!
If my car hadn't been on empty, I would have jumped back in it and stayed there!
I decided to drive back home and change into ARMOR. When I got here though, I decided to just forget it. There certainly are advantages to being the owner of the business. I spent the rest of today up here in my sewing room finishing the gray skirt with embroidery up the side of it.
Terry came over yesterday afternoon with a huge box of tee shirts for the mission in Nicaragua. I took two stacks of 12 tee shirts to add skirts to. Terry's Mom is taking some to do. Terry, of course, will do some. Terry and I were VERY disappointed to find that every single tee in this bunch had a hole in it! Before we can add the skirts, we have to fix the holes, and that is NOT easy. I spent at least an hour this morning fixing 12 of them. Terry and I both feel these children deserve the BEST tee shirts -- not the rejects! We aren't about to send them down there with holes in them.
I need a book to listen to when I'm driving to OKC next week.
Have any of you read/heard a good one lately?
