So, I got off work at noon on Wednesday (nice!). Stopped by the grocery store for a few things NOT Turkey Day related, and then came home to clean up the house before Tyler's arrival.
Vacuumed the family room, the kitchen (pre-mop), the living/dining rooms (barely, since no one ever goes in there), my bedroom, and finally ... the sewing room, which was in dire need what with the layer of thread (and pins ... oops) covering the carpet.
While in there, I made my way with the vacuum into the corner with the mirror, where I had laid down a pattern (which shall remain nameless) to deal with putting away later. As I bent over to lift it up so I could vacuum under it, I spied the corner of another pattern. "Hmmm ... what is that?" I wondered. You know what's coming, right?
Shuffle, shuffle ...
... the missing Christine Jonson wrap top.Yay!!!
Geez ... getting old is rough. Not only did I "lose" the pattern for a bit (which I have NEVER done before), but I have no memory whatsoever of taking it out, pressing it flat, and then apparently laying it aside on the floor.
But at least I found the pattern BEFORE I ended up ordering it again, which would've been today during the last day of the sale, even if somewhere along the way I seem to have misplaced my brain. (BTW, you can order CJ Patterns from Pattern Review and they will ship internationally. I'm thinking CJ will also ship internationally since the PR sales ship direct from CJ. Maybe worth another inquiry if you're interested.)
Thanksgiving yesterday was fun. Tyler arrived around 8:30 Wednesday night, with (surprise!) another Marine. By Thursday morning, he had (surprise!) another friend here too. Around noon, two of Alex's friends showed up (not a surprise). We pretty much doubled our expected eaters since Tyler himself was last-minute. And even though I actually reduced my usual quantity of food bought and prepared, we STILL had a TON to eat and now a TON of leftovers in the fridge. (But I do love me a turkey sandwich.)
Tyler, friend, and Alex are taking off for my stepson Michael's over in St. Augustine tonight for a night of barhopping and whatever 3 brothers do (I intentionally don't ask for details), with Alex returning home tomorrow night sometime and Tyler/friend going northward back to base.
Which means I will have a day alone for just me and the CJ Wrap. Hoping the mojo stays hungry ... we have patterns and turkey to get through. And pie. ;-)
Parting shot - As promised, the HP top and the (wrinkled from being at a desk all day) KS skirt after work this past Tuesday.
