* Making: there has been a lot of cutting and sewing in the few spare moments of my days.
Sewing on a machine requires quite a different sort of concentration than knitting, or hand sewing. The little people around me cope a lot better with me busying myself with a needle (or two) in my hand, when I can look up, stop, help and play much more readily than when I’m sitting in front of the machine. Even if it is just for a few minutes at a time.
So the whole hat making process is taking a little longer than expected, but I am hoping to have a few new sun hats ready in the shop by this weekend.
* Listening: I had the rare pleasure of a solo car ride one evening this week, and got to turn my music up.
When my sister gave us her old car two years ago, it came with a bunch of her CDs in it. I don’t ever really get past the first few songs on the first CD, but those favourite hits of two summers ago remind me of a wonderful few weeks. They take me right back, like a proper mix tape. Ha, remember those? I don’t think I’ve had such an emotional mix tape session for at least ten years..
