What I did over my summer vacation Labor Day Weekend:
DH and I had a very nice four-day weekend. On Friday, we both got haircuts, ate at the Indian buffet (YUM!!!), and shopped for ceiling fans and lights for the new construction and re-construction.
On Saturday, I worked out, did a few productive things, then read for the rest of the afternoon. Bliss with a book that required no brain cell bending. I love to read and will read just about anything but this was perfect for the afternoon.
Sunday, the electricians showed up at a pretty early hour to start their part of the construction. Sigh. So, after a bit of breakfast and blog-reading, I took the Jeep down to Madison to do some grocery shopping and obtain things we cannot find at our local Piggly Wiggly. Once I was back home, I started a new project and completed it today.
The fabric is a dark red tencel that was 20% off at Gayfeather Fabrics a few weeks ago. A simple top and a straight skirt were pretty basic to sew. I pulled out my Featherweight sewing machine and tried to remember where I put my sewing skills. *g* No formal pattern but I copied an outfit I paid quite a bit for then had one of those V-8 moments. *Hey* I can make this myself! And I did. It will look great with a black jacket or the red shawl Stacey and I plan to knit together sometime.
Today I also worked on the garden and divided the Florentine Iris. For those of you who put your name in the hat earlier this summer for some rhizomes...expect a package within the next week or so. For those of you who were too shy to speak up, let me know if you are up for some iris to add to your garden.
For the week's *e* recap, I visited Curves three times this week, once in Ladysmith and twice at my "home" Curves.
