The Lady came home tonight and cleaned the table in the table room and the rest of the room too. Then she did ALL the dirty dishes, which was pretty much all the dishes she has. Then she did some "laundry." Then she made herself dinner (it was pork and I got some). THEN she did a little sewing, but not with the machine. She did it with a piece of fine string and she put a real neat shiny thing on one finger. I wanted it, but she wouldn't let me get it.
She is making a jacket. There is a story about why she's making a jacket. She is always cold at her work. Even in summer. So she likes jeans jackets. Or jackets like that. She saw a neat one at the PEM gift shop last week that gave her the idea of making one.
Now, I have to tell you a "back story." The Lady has lost 40 pounds. She "made Lifetime" this summer, right after I got my leg fixed. And since she lost so much weight (I mean, that's 8 of me, where did it go?), she needed ALL new clothes, since nothing fit anymore. When she sews, she has to keep her hands clean, and that means no snacking on things that will make her not skinny (and she LOVES being thin), and she says sewing relieves stress... (now frankly, I think she could use more naps...) so she decided to make a jacket. (Except I'm pretty sure she's gonna make more than one. She already has plans for at least two more in her head...)
She says it isn't finished, but it looks done to me. She says it needs buttons and buttonholes. Anyway, here it is.
She says to tell you all that she has been sewing since she was in 4th grade, and that was a really really really long time ago.
