and it's only Wednesday! Oy vey!

Let's see...Monday we went to the Grandparent's. Um....Grannie isn't doing very well. We got there around 9:30; the door was open so we walked in. She was sitting on the floor - she had (please excuse me) fallen and couldn't get up. And we couldn't get her up. Her neighbor got home at 11 and got her up into a chair; while we waited the kids and I did a lot of little things for her around the house. :sigh:

Yesterday was SG's day of working from home. I had to go with him to the Toyota dealership (40 miles away) to drop off the Camry for recall work. I then spent the day (after school, of course) sewing some tank tops - here:

I have 5 (well, 6 if you count the wearable muslin - watermelon fabric. It seems SG has a "thing" for fruit prints - he LOVES the top. He couldn't comment on the *fit*, but the print? LOVE.) The lozenge and the fish are finished; the other 3 are waiting on bias tape for the neck and armholes. Here - look at it on Kat:

It's unstructured; loose and comfy. PERFECT for outdoor chores.

I also have another Gertie top almost finished:

(I can just eke out 2 shirts from 3 yards of fabric, IF I use bias tape for the binding, instead of self-bias. Not too bad! It's why I have the same print in 2 different shirts.)


I'm waiting on a button placement gauge - I love this print so much, and I want this blouse to be as perfect as I can get it. (The other tops are a little wonky in the button area - no big deal, but I'm trying to up my game here.)

We're pretty booked the rest of the week, so there will probably be no more sewing. Next week I need to tackle shorts. And PJ's.

Sam seems to be doing well. :fingers crossed: We're slowly tapering the steroids down, so....hopefully he'll continue doing well. I want to tackle a Thundershirt knock-off for him out of some of the knit fabric I picked up last week....people clothes first, though.

If I don't get back here before Friday, have a great week/weekend!
