Saturday was a lovely warm day, with an afternoon high of 96F. It was warm enough that I changed out of my cotton long sleeved blouse to a sleeveless blouse and removed the socks that I was wearing! Of course, the fact that I felt warm enough to do so might also have something to do with the fact that I spent most of the afternoon with a comforter spread out on my lap as I sewed a border to conceal the frayed edge of the comforter:
I watched cooking shows and news on TV while I sewed the borders. I have now more or less completed all the items on my "brain dump" list that I posted a week ago, last Saturday! I say 'more or less' because the second baby blanket has been started, but, not completed. Which is fine, because it is not needed until mid-July. On the whole, I am very pleased with what I was able to accomplish, during this week.
After I finished sewing the borders, I decided to mend a small hole that was on the back of one of my blouses. I darned the hole, but, I didn't have the exact shade of thread, and it didn't look neat, so, I sewed around the hole with a button hole stitch and added some French knots around it.
Later in the evening, I watered the garden, both front and back, even though M had watered the back when he was here on Friday, mostly because the new seedlings he planted needed to be watered since it had been so warm during the day.
On Saturday, I was grateful for:
- Another sunny and warm day
- Water for the garden
- My thread stash
- Chatting with my daughter and friends
- What I was able to accomplish
Saturday's joyful activity was sewing.
Plans for Sunday include more sewing!
How was your Saturday? How is your Sunday coming along?
