Deborah: Lagging behind

Well I am seriously behind. Not that I haven't been stitching, I just have no idea where May went to.

I plan on getting caught up this weekend, since it's a long one.

I've been trying to do some garment sewing since my work clothes are looking pretty sad. I don't know about the rest of you but after I get home from work and do what needs to be done I'm pretty much wasted. Sometimes I get in an hour of machine sewing before I feel like I have to stop before I do something really screwy. Then I settle down to hand stitch, get about one seam done and my head is bobbing onto my chest. Such are the quirks of old age!

Just wanted to check in to let you know I'm still alive and making furious attempts to cram 48 hours into 24.

Good to hear you are still with us. I am now semi-retired, finally, so I have more time to stitch. I do know exactly what you are saying though. Work just gets in the way of living, so why do they call it 'making a living'?

Glad you're still hanging in there, Deborah. It's hard to find time for everything even when you're retired.......

Could you go a little handwork on your lunch hour?

Hey are you spying on me and copying me? Sounds exactly like me!

Connie makes a good point about it being 'making a living'.

ladyhawthorne said...

If she's like me she only gets a 1/2 hour and that's barely time to choke down food.

I remember those days, and I can't say it's with fondness. =)

When you find out how to cram those 48 hours into 24, give me a shout, okay? I need to know.
I hope you have some time to relax and enjoy this weekend.

I took early retirement (very early, lol) I did the honorable thing and gave up my job so that some young person who needs to 'make a living' could have a job....... that's my excuse and I'm sticking to it.

Good luck finding those extra hours. Maybe enlist the help of a mathematician or scientist to search for them. Failing that you could get Superman to fly you the wrong way around the world very fast so you go back in time, then you can get the stitching done.

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

LOL. You certainly are giving Cy and do have some great suggestions (tee hee)

jenclair said...

I'm falling behind, too. Especially on posting!

Deborah/Jenclair - thank you for taking time out of your busy lives to comment. Think how awful it would be if there were no feedback, so keep up the good work and stitch when you're able.

Cy said...

Connie, what I said above sounds so much better than the truth of not being able to do the heavy work any more, lol. I'm sure I'm not the first person forced to give up work because of injury.

Peacock said...

Ditto what everyone else has said. I'm glad you take the time to pop in here and say hi, even when your week is so busy you don't get much sewing done.

Connie Eyberg Originals said...

I'm sorry Cy. I didn't know (or maybe didn't remember) you had to give up work due to injury. I do know a lot of others in that situation. But, I still do like the Superman idea.

Cy said...

Don't be sorry Connie, I've been having a whale of a time as a 'lady of leisure' for the last three + years, <3 and I get to stitch all day if I want to, lol. I count myself as one of the lucky ones.
