I wasn't in a mood to bake anything, and since I was serving leftovers for dinner, I didn't need to do any meal prep.
Instead, I decided to finally tackle a couple small projects waiting for me in the sewing room. A few weeks ago I found a nice button-down shirt for Edwin at a thrift store. I like to have about 1-2 in his closet during the warm weather months. After washing it, however, I discovered some pen marks on the outside of the collar. I hadn't looked there for stains. So I solved that problem by turning the collar. Now the stain is hidden when the collar is folded down. Good thing he doesn't like to pop his collar.
The next project was hand-stitching some underarm seams in a jumper that used to be mine that Elena now wears. If you look closely you can see the ice cream cone buttons my mom sewed on this years ago. I loved them as a kid.
My last project today was actually the beginning of a much bigger project: sewing room curtains. I cut the fabric to the right length and then began to iron it. This is one I'll spread out over a number of rainy days when I can't work out in the yard and garden.
I have two lengths of this fabric. I found the shorter length first and loved, loved, loved it. I knew it wouldn't be enough for what I needed, and they said they didn't have any more in stock. Since I bought it at a fabric outlet, I couldn't just order more. When I looked for it online I didn't find any good source for it, so put it in my stash and focused on other projects in the meantime. Two years later, I was at the same fabric outlet and happened to find another roll of the same fabric. Woo hoo! We will be replacing the sewing room windows in the near future, so I figure I might as well start working on these curtains.
