Just For the Record...
Today is Wednesday. Just for the record, it's been exactly 4 weeks since my hip surgery. I've come a long way since that day. I feel like I'm being patient about my recuperation, but once in a while I succumb to a wee, little bit of self-pity and curiosity about what I'm going to be able to do once I'm completely healed. But I have to kick those thoughts out of my head as quickly as possible. I mean, really, it's only been 4 weeks. And except for the fact that I'm not jogging a 5K, I am doing just about everything I want/need to do right now.
Now....having said all that, I'm in the middle of a sewing project. My daughter, who is the co-advisor for her son's Junior Class, has organized a fund-raiser in the form of a Princess Tea, slated to take place in Feb. The teens need their prince/princess outfits. I guess it's up to each of them how/where they get them.
My grandson is going to be....hmmmm, don't really know, but he decided he wanted to wear this Renaissance Vest. And guess who gets to make it?? Moi!! Counting today (since it's only 8 am right now), I have 7 days till I leave for Hawaii. So why not throw a sewing project into the mix? I guess it really isn't a problem, since I usually wait until the day before I leave to do my packing....drives my other daughter crazy--she packs for her trips a week in advance.
Anyway, I would love to have made the shirt to go with the vest, but daughter didn't want to spend the money, and I'm glad they opted out of it. Add the shirt into the mix, and I might just be feeling stressed.
