The weekend felt productive, even though there were a lot of chores that didn't get done! Saturday morning I had my final sewing class, so I hauled the machine to a storage facility one last time (they're still in temporary digs). I wasn't that excited about the class, because it was "aprons". I already have three (cooking) aprons, so I decided to make the "tool belt" apron (it also required only 1/2 yard of fabric, which I had lying around...you might recognize it =).
In the end, I was SO glad I went to class. I don't think I've ever taken a class in which I haven't learned something, and this one was no exception. So without further ado, behold my apron!
Flush with success, I decided I was going to finally try to replicate this bag, which I bought to hold Les Rubans.
After I finished the bag, we went and voted! Voting was in a library branch, so afterwards we were involuntarily sucked in to look at the books. They create their own gravitational pull, you know. We may have brought home a few.
On Sunday after church, we met some friends for lunch and then went to a dedication for the new sorority house on campus. When I lived there, 14 people lived in four rooms in the house. Now about 40 live in 20 rooms, and there's a huge kitchen with a chef! (Who, as an aside, was a bit too handsome to be a chef in a sorority house, if you ask me.) When we got home, I demanded cocoa because I was so cold. I mean, I was told that when it got cold, there would be cocoa, so it was only fair. What's the point of cold weather if there's no cocoa, anyway?
|Sewing class has, at the very least, given me confidence to try and figure things out on my own.|
