  • If sewing in an r.v. were an Olympic event
  • There would be a gold medal for Canada
  • Older man stopped by and watched me serge on the picnic table
  • My mother died when I was young but I remember her sewing for all us kids, he said
  • Seeing you there brought her back
  • I like doing something that makes older men remember their mothers
  • Told the husband that when the draft goes out he is taking me for a mojito
  • Not much for drinks but like ones that taste like something else
  • Do you know what not once in my life have I ever gone into a bar by myself?
  • As likely to do that as apply lipstick in public
  • Some things date me
  • Taken time to adapt to these things
  • Jackets and coats that are shorter than what's under them
  • Bra straps that show under racerback tanks or dresses
  • Shoes and purses that don't match
  • Why bare veinly legs are better than having nylons over them
  • Calling panty hose nylons
  • Some things don't date me
  • Don't date most women
  • When was the last time you heard a woman say she was a meat and potatoes kind of person?
  • I think fashion and children keep us flexible
  • Think of all the styles we have talked ourselves into
  • Cold shouldered tops this year
  • Thong underwear
  • Coats with only one button at the top
  • Midcalf skirts
  • Hope I haven't offended anyone here
  • Shoes we can't walk in
  • All this sewing has reminded me how energizing it is to go all in on what you are working on
  • I enjoy working hard
  • Forget telling myself that the dusting and hand made pasta are things that I would do if I had more time
  • I would have the time if I really wanted to do them
  • Would just rather sew
  • Golf game much improved
  • Husband double checking my score
  • No date stamp on learning
  • Remember that
  • Have an idea for a new project
  • Response to my friend who flags the "10 minute recipe"
  • List of things sewers can cook so they don't waste sewing time
  • Criteria is that it can be made in 10 minutes
  • Doesn't poison you
  • And has some category of healthy
  • So fish sticks and frozen French fries are not eligible
  • Besides I can already do that
  • You in?
