No Sewing.........Life Update

I really miss sewing.  Since Dear Daughter has been home for the summer, we've started on remodel/redecorating the kitchen.  I would love to show you some before and after photos but I accidentally deleted all the photos on my camera SD card!  So I guess when we are all done, I'll just show you after photos.

Update:  I remembered I send my friend Beverly a before and after photo of one wall of the kitchen!

Kitchen Before


Dear Hubby has finally returned to work since his foot surgery in April.  He was ready to get back to his guys.  I think he was tired of being stuck at the house with us girls!  I'm so glad his foot is better.  It has been a long road to recovery and he still has a long road ahead but he's feeling little to no foot pain so he's headed in the right direction.

Dear Hubby and I eat a Keto style diet.  Last year after his accident, when he returned to work, his uniforms were a little tight.  After his recent surgery he didn't want weight gain again we both stuck to a strict Keto diet and his uniforms were a little too big this time.  I've lost about 32lbs and many inches and Dear Hubby has lost about 25lbs or more.  It was such a relief to not stress over his uniforms fitting this time around.

Even though here in Florida the temps are over 100 degrees, I am ready to do some Fall sewing.  I think that my agenda will be in the colors of grays and blacks and whites....maybe some purples.
I want a gray midi dress with long sleeves, maybe some type of wrap dress and a gray skirt.  I still need to sew up a cowl/drape neck top in white and maybe one in black.  Since loosing a little weight I need slips.  The ones I have fall low on my hips and show at my skirt/dress hems.  I could just trim them........... we'll see.

I found a Craigslist sewing table earlier this month.  It's nothing too fancy and I think I may rework the hardware on the front so it doesn't scream 70's!  But it's in nice condition and it was a great price $40!

I hope to be able to sew soon.  School starts back on the 10th and I will have the house to myself again.  Maybe I can get back to my sewing room and since no one will be home the house will stay clean!

Until next time..............
