Why do vacations sound fabulous when they are months or weeks away but when they are tomorrow, I go into hyper mode? We will be away on two different trips for the rest of the month. So I decide not only laundry and bill paying is in order but heck finish a major sewing project.
The t-shirt top is done and I decided I hate the back. Quilt store visit! Got a new one, washed it, sewed it together and ironed the life out of me, I mean it. Got in on the longarm and wound those rails back and forth to make sure that puppy was on there tight and straight. Then I laid the batting on followed by pinning the top. Did I mention it was hot and I had been ironing? Oh baby, good thing I have a couple of fans up there. Ran the top back and forth and ta-da, it's straight. (I hope!) Now it's all set for when I get back.
Which leaves in the car needling. I have been working overtime on the weekends building up "comp" time for this trip but I want to still knit. But what if I don't want to work on just one project? Back to the yarn store! Plus a little dip into the stash. Now I think I am set.
Oops, better pack some clothes.
