I got the shirt almost done. I am only lacking putting the buttons on. I will do that when they lady I am making these for comes over for a fitting. I have a sundress to make for her and then she will come and I can fit the shirt for button placement, the dress and skirts for hem length.
I having been rereading The Hidden Art of Homemaking. In one chapter she talks about fresh flowers and how they brighten a home. I can grow vegetables, but, I am not the best at growing flowers. I have two pots of flowers on my front porch and I struggle to keep these alive. My husband used to bring me flowers alot. I got him to stop. You see I have this tendency to be over practical. Flowers cost money, money that could be used for other things. In THAoH she mentions people in the Netherlands and how even the poor use a little to get fresh flowers for their homes. I remembered a year or two ago when my husband brought me flowers again after many years. I remembered how happy those flowers made me. So, while at the store yesterday I picked up some flowers. Now, mind you I bought the marked down ones! LOL.
All this to say, they did brighten up last nights supper. I think sometimes I can be over practical. I might have to do this more often.
Sew Long for Now!
