Hi readers! I have never managed to implement the concept of pre-scheduling a blog post. Each post goes down to the wire before getting scheduled for Tuesday morning; I’m still writing this when you should be reading it. I was distracted in a bad way by a snowstorm that hit my town and state. I say “snowstorm”, but by Midwest standards it’s a flurry. One inch of snow and a few days of below freezing temperatures are so out of character for the state of Texas that an emergency was declared for the entire state. Rightly so. We’re dealing with everything that comes with that kind of weather: a) everything canceled (no one here knows how to drive on a layer of snow and ice), b) power outage (residents of the “energy capital of the world” have to suffer days of power outage in sub-freezing temperatures. I was lucky enough to bear the cold for just 3 hours), c) no water and the anxiety-inducing effect of anticipated frozen/busted pipes once there’s a thaw. Please say a prayer for my plumbing. that it stays intact.
They say, bad weather days are perfect sewing days. Not so perfect with all of the above issues; my sewing project which was supposed to be finished on Saturday, is still a WIP (work in progress). This in-process pajama top is a refashioned silk blouse with new polka dot bands at the bottom. The bands used to be a beautiful Banana Republic Factory Outlet silk charmeuse skirt – which my daughter was ready to let go of. This is only as far as I could get between dealing with weather related house and life issues.
I’ll stop writing here and go have some anxious moments. Love to all, be safe and warm,
