This is where I am on the gray jacket--the welt pocket, I'm paralyzed by fear but will press on, wish me luck. It's been a busy weekend (all that cooking lol) I haven't done much sewing.
Saturday morning I went to the needlecraft's group at my local library, these women are full of wonderful advice and ideas. I really enjoyed myself and look forward to next month's meeting. I even scored some free fabric from one of the ladies that attends, thanks again.
While at the library I picked this up, I have loved Diahann Carroll since her tv show Julia and she has a special place in my heart as with any movie I saw at the Compton drive-in with my Mom, I saw Claudine and I still love that movie, along with all the other 70's movies my Mom didn't censor us at all. I don't know why I set myself up to think that these people are any thing but self absorbed assholes but I'm always so disappointed to see it in print. I would have preferred to keep my illusions that while being a famous actress/performer she was also a good Mother, not so. I guess I should give her credit and I do for breaking several barriers and achieving all that she did but I still feel sorry for her daughter and feel that she lost sight of what's most important. I know, easy for me to say, she choose a career over being a Mother and I think the trade off can't be worth it.
Nothing says Summer like watermelon, I know I'm rushing it but this one was really good, it's one of the small ones. I like those because you don't end up throwing half of it out.
My cute little neighbor, my DD refuses to let me take down the Obama sign, Gwen took it down when she came over and my DD put it back.
On Saturday I took my Grandson and Gwen's grandson to the skating rink. My GS is my last hope, neither of my kids can skate half as good as I can, and it's not because I didn't try, I put both of them in skates as soon as they could walk it just didn't take. He was doing okay at the end of the session. I'll have to take him more often, as you can see they spent more time playing skeet ball than they did skating but he enjoyed doing the hokey-pokey and the chicken dance.
When do they learn this, the mean mugging pose lol.
Oh well, that's about it for me. I hope everyone had a great weekend.
