Finally - I'm Back From Vacation and Sewing Again!
I thought I would get so much sewing done on my vacation - I took so many projects along with me to get started on and then...nothing! I didn't even set up my machine. I also took my camera intent upon taking wonderful photos of my grandkids, birds, Boo, etc. Never even touched it!
So here's what really happened: I went to my new vacation home in Reno and gave myself a generous 10 full days to pull some organization out of the chaos of the boxes and get things set up. I then proceeded to organize myself into paralysis. I made lists and went to Home Depot. I made lists and went to Costco. I made lists and went to Lowe's. I made lists and met with the gardener. I made lists and met with the appliance repair guy. I made lists and put up the bird feeders. I made lists and met with the ScreenMobile guy. I made lists and bought plants and then went back for trees. Well, I think you get my point! Why is it that each new project seems to require a trip to a store?
I still don't know what is in some of the piles of boxes in the garage - will have to wait until the next trip when the new shelving units are put up and I can empty and put away the contents.
I did take time for some fun. Spent a lot of time with my grandkids. It's amazing what fun a 3 and 5 year old can have with hot weather, a blow-up swimming pool and a sprinkler! They never got tired of this activity. Boo also enjoyed the splashing and cavorting around the yard.
Now I'm back to work and the Bay Area. (Gosh the weather is nice here!) Time for me to get back to my sewing room and get to work.
What are you working on? Have you taken a vacation yet this summer? Will you sew on your vacation or do what I did and bring it all along only to be ignored?
Aaaaaanyway, that's it from the Robertson household.
