Covid be damned!! My mask and my hand sanitizer, my cane and I left my house in the rain this morning.
We went to the Goodwill store. Twenty five percent off on senior day.
African clothing screamed my name. $3.50 each...Cut it down tonight during MQG sit and sew.
The orange and pink fabric holds 3 yards, My heart!! The red and yellow, a yard and a half.
No one else there seemed to be stressed about Covid. The parking lot was packed and there were lines at the register. Everyone wore masks. I then put gas in my very own car like a grown up. I checked out Publix for the first time in the 20 years, since we lived in Miami. A load of stress was lifted from my shoulders, just being out and about.
Look what Aoife's daddy found at the store today!!!
Lynsey is so daddy's girl. She got him to make doll candy bars with her. (Ps, You do note that this is an invasion of my sewing room!!
She printed the labels from a doll site online, and made the bars, using cardboard and tin foil
Last year Lynsey gave up dolls. It was such a shock. One day I was making a doll baby carrier and the next day all the dolls were put away and she was all grown up and done.
Today she changed her mind. She said last year, a friend had looked down her nose, saying...Lynsey, you still play with dolls????? This year she said she does not care. She loves to organize and create for her dolls. Whew. I told her even adults make things for their dolls!! Sharing that one time a lady looked down her nose at me for quilting. You cut up perfectly good fabric to sew back together again????, She said with an eye roll...I did not put my quilting things away.. Grandma is way mature!!!
The two churn dash...
Below, Dylan's joy. He is fixing up his brother's old room as a technology place. In the garage, evidently there were extra screens...Mr. Computer lover has hooked them all up to talk with friends and play two games at once. Wow, Dylan, Wow.
I have not handled Covid well...I have eaten too much, had too many glasses of wine, been in tears and recently started buying new fabric that I have always wanted...all to soothe my soul
Today was a good one.
A good night and a good day....all because I was brave and left the house.
Tomorrow a porch sewing visitor...wahoo..
