Wow, we are already four weeks into the new year. Are you still writing 2014 on all your dates? I find that I'm doing well at writing 2015 on my checks and such, but when I'm typing my fingers keep straying towards the "4" key, completely missing the "5" key. I've had to edit more than one Excel and Word document lately
It hasn't been a bad week. I was off last Monday to take Drama Teen and a friend dress shopping. They have a dance coming up in a couple of weeks. DT had a hard time finding anything that looked good on her. She finally came home with a deep blue dress that worked well with both her complexion and her figure. Here's a sneak peak of one of the details.
She still needs to find some shoes to go with it. She'll have to wear flats this year. Her physical therapist and surgeon don't think she's ready for heels just yet, unless she wants to wear her knee brace to the dance. So flats it will be. We've seen some cute ones, so she's not too broken up about it.
I managed to get myself up the to the sewing room most evenings this last week. I'm not sure it really shows in the stash report.
Used last week: 0.47 yards
Used in January: 2.24 yards
Even better, no fabric in for the year as yet. But I'm still deleting all the fabric shop emails so I'm not tempted. One of the dress shops we visited on Monday was right across the street from my preferred quilt shop. Drama Teen asked if were stopping and I told her no. She leaned over from her seat to put her hand on my forehead to make sure I wasn't running a fever. She was sure I was ill. Funny girl. So far my fabric diet is working better than my food diet. At least one of them is going well.
