Stand Navy Out To Sea
I am off work for a few days so am just puttering around. I went to the library and got some videos and books on tape so now I am going to sew. Yesterday I found about 5/8 of a yard of red linen and managed to fit that sleeveless peasant top pattern of Abby's on it. I did some decorative stitching down the center front and finished sewing it last evening. A really cute top out of what I thought was an unusable scrap. It looks really good on her too. I ran across the Indian fabrics chosen by my daughters who wanted me to make them peasant tops, and I may get started on that. I am tired of setting in sleeves and sewing on cuffs and collars, so it would be fun to sew something fast and simple, and I do love sewing on pretty fabrics.
I am still tired from tramping all over that aircraft carrier (see http://www.uss-hornet.org/) on Saturday, but I should go do my weight lifting anyway instead of lazing around. The tour on the carrier lasted over 2 hours, maybe over 3, and we went up and down stairs and over gangways and in and out of lots of places. It was fascinating. My endurance has increased and I did fine until the very end when we had to walk up a very long non-operational escalator to an open deck with a great view across the bay to SF. After that I was really tired, but very much stronger in my admiration for the Navy.
I think Abby and I are going to make tortillas this afternoon, because we need to have leftovers for dinner and it won't be so onerous if it is wrapped in a fresh tortilla.
