As my siblings and parents and husband and children will tell you, I am slightly scatterbrained and more than a little distractible. Except when I am sewing, as I have recently discovered. Hours can melt away while I am intent on finishing a sleeve or figuring out just how the diagram works.
One of the things I am most anticipating about my return to the States is pulling my machine out of the closet and stitching together the patterns I worked so hard at tracing today. I am GEEKED, I tell you. What's more, I am going to go home with cut fabric in my suitcase. We aren't needing the queen-sized duvet cover anymore, so it's turning into several "muslins" for some new garments for me and Z. All I will have to do is sew the pieces together.
p.s. Happy Memorial Day! Wish we were here celebrating.
