What a day. We missed swimming lessons because Captains Kitty and Chaos have ear aches. I tried to get them in to see the doctor, but, no go. I have to try back in the a.m.

I went to JoAnn's and picked up the last pattern and the zippers. I put the zipper in the dress in yesterday's picture. I sewed some on one of the smaller dresses. While making straps out of the ribbon I realized there was not enough ribbon for four dresses and ran to the store to get some more. I bought the last 4 yards they had. When I returned home the ill captains requested me to read to them. We finished The Penderwicks. I came back to the sewing room and worked some more on one of the dresses. I hurriedly made supper because tonight was Sewing Guild. I thought about not going, but the General thought I needed to go and get out since the captains were a bit whiney.

Sewing Guild was interesting. A lady spoke on Fung Shuing (not sure of the spelling) and setting up your space using this so things felt better and you could work more peacefully. I didn't understand a lot of it. I would have to do a bit more reading up on it to understand it.

Sew Long for Now.

Sorry the captains feel so lousy. Glad you're getting so much done, though, and that you were able to get out tonight.

Interesting that they would talk about Feng Shui at your sewing guild. I grew up in Taiwan and Feng Shui was under the domain of the bhuddist monks. They would come in and tell store owners, for example, how to set up the store so that it would be successful. It's made it's way to the US and sort of become just a calming decorating concept. I'm interested in what they said.

Linda how gracious of you to give me the right spelling without saying a word! Thank you. Yes, she talked about it in the sense of a calming decorating concept. She showed us how to figure out some aspect of it that relates to our birth year and how this will help you in the atmosphere and productivity of your work space. Mine was a Sun and I think that had some thing to do with SE. I was very confused by most of what she said.
