I appreciate your thoughts and prayers
I want to say how much I appreciated your thoughts and prayers during this time. I feel like so many of you are my friends, because of our love of sewing and our sharing together of that passion through our blogs.
Today there is a more of a sense of normalcy again. We held my father's funeral Monday. The weather was very accommodating and in the low 70's. I was able to reconnect with many relatives on my father's side that I had not seen in years. I feel at peace knowing that he is not suffering anymore.
Today I shopped for all the foods and such that I need to prepare Thanksgiving dinner for DH and me. I always love to cook for Thanksgiving. I think it is because I have plenty of prep time to fix the dinner.
I spent time this afternoon finalizing the fit of the Vogue jacket and then cut out the fabric. All of the zippers I ordered online arrived this week. The zippers from Sew True proved to be the best gray color for the front separating zipper. I have decided not to sew the pockets. I can change my mind when I begin as I do have the zippers necessary for the pockets. I am just not feeling the need for them.
I am currently waiting for DH to come home. He has decided to stop and get us Chinese food for dinner. The perfect before Thanksgiving day dinner tonight.
If you celebrate Thanksgiving tomorrow, I wish you a pleasant and thankful holiday. If you are not celebrating, I also wish you a pleasant day on Thursday. More later.
