a tiny farewell



.... My computer is off to the doctor's tomorrow. It's in need of a new logic board (eeek!) and for the past week I've been borrowing computers here and there. So - the blog quietness is starting to set in, even though I'm not even trying!!

That means for the next few days I have no excuses but to be spending my free time stitching and mending the enormous pile of clothing that's been haunting me all summer - and the other half of that time will be spent with my hands dipped in laundry bubbles or attached to an iron. Yep, it should be a fun week (and I'm only being sarcastic about the sewing part, I really do love laundry and stubborn stains and ironing! The sewing is awful because I only have tedious things to do like fixing hems and mending holes, nothing easy like loose buttons)

Oh, and if you're wondering- that little black top is from the 30's and one of the things that needs some handiwork this week, as well as the slip.
And then there's the medical drawings! I just got these in the mail and I'm excited about them! They're a seventh grader's biology sketches from 1900!

I'm a slave to the sewing machine today as well. This is my last week of selling summer clothes so I've really got to get to work on all the winter clothes I've been storing up like a little squirrel. That black and white blouse is to die for!

Sometimes it's good to take a break from blogging. It's kind of like turning off your cell phone.
