Ok, now I'm going to do some justifying here so please indulge me for just a bit.
1. I've been working almost double the hours that I normally work and sewing time has been scarce.
2. I've had a lot of embroidery orders lately. It's amazing how true the saying "when it rains it pours" really is. I went almost 31/2 months without more than one order at a time and a total of 3 for that entire time, but I've had 11 orders in the last 3 weeks, including 3 at a time, twice. Since these are usually time-sensitive (needed for funerals) they take priority and everything else gets put on hold. Often these don't have a lot of embroidery (names, birth and death dates, etc.) but a couple of these later ones have been quite a bit more extensive. I've put the Lord's Prayer on one and the Irish Blessing on another one. If I'm embroidering a casket scarf, I have to take the pre-made scarf apart, embroider it and then restitch it. It's time consuming but worth it.
3. I was out of town for a week and very little sewing got done (just a bit of hexagon piecing), but some shopping did.
4. There was a quilt show this past weekend (Quilting with Machines) and I was there helping/shopping Wednesday - Saturday. I'm just thankful that I didn't decide to keep a report of my thread and notions purchases this year!!
Ok, after typing out my
