Catching up!

Sewing has been minimal of late.  A couple of weeks ago, we lost power for several days due to snow/sleet and freezing rain which toppled tress in several neighborhoods including where I live.  Without power for three days required living in a hotel to have warmth,  to eat and shower.

The weekend following this freeze developed into restocking some refrigerated food items, defrosting a smaller refrigerator and catching up on laundry, etc.  Then our bank account was messed up from a very bad error relating to a payment to a creditor; filing a fraudulent complaint got all parties talking and money put back into our bank account.

And then this week I received a phone call that my cousin who came to live with my family when I was in elementary school, becoming my quasi brother, passed away unexpectedly.  So spent time with family the past three days helping arrange funeral services and catching up with long time family members and friends.  I am still feeling the loss.

This afternoon I actually spent time in the sewing room spending time on the Eleanore pattern by Jalie.  This is my Freaking February project which hopefully will get finished soon.

I also started going through fabrics that I pulled for fall/winter sewing and want to move them out of the sewing room and start pulling fabric from stash for spring/summer sewing.  Next week the temperatures will be in the 70's!

Beginning to feel a little back to normal.  Will post more later.
