Most Friday evenings I do the grocery shopping along with DH and then we have a quick bite to eat. When we get home, I usually go into my sewing room for the end of the week, start of the weekend sewing. Not this Friday though.

Yesterday was my dad's 80th birthday! He is in the early stages of Alzheimers. He lives in an assisted living facility in NC. My uncle and aunt live 10 minutes away from him and do a great job of looking in on him and taking care of many of his needs. I am so appreciative.

Because it was his birthday, they brought him to Danville, VA for a birthday dinner at a local seafood restaurant to be with other family and friends. I left work a little early to travel to Danville to join in and to celebrate his birthday. We had a great time and it is good to spend time with his side of the family as we have at times been estranged from each other.

So sewing will start sometime today. My goal is to finish the dress!!!!! I am still on the fence for the jacket.


  1. Linda .- greetings from Barcelona (Spain). Thanks for making a link to your blog. Your work is very inspiring and I want to congratulate. A big hug, Paco

    Excuse my English, I have to use a translator on-line to communicate with you. I hope you can understand me, thank you.

  2. Linda,
    I am so behind in reading (as usual). I am so happy you got to spend time with your Dad. I hope it was memorable.
