Have been doing a little sewing on my dress for a wedding on the 21st. Actually have made a little progress in between phone calls. Seems like people know when I am home trying to get some things done. The phone rings all the time. Was worried that this dress I was making might not be ready by the wedding or I would not like it, so I tried ordering a couple of dresses. It is so hard to find clothes that are not for a teen or my grandmother. I fit somewhere in between that. They came yesterday and I tried them on this morning. Suffice it to say "They are both going back to where they came from". The dress I am working on will have to work.
A couple of weeks ago when I went shopping with Reina and Anita, I bought this crochet pattern book for one of the patterns in it. It was for a shopping bag that I thought would come in handy and it looked like something that I could manage. So I started it on Monday while sitting at the LNS. Needed a car project. Have it going pretty good, but now that I read the pattern again, I may rip part of it out because I don't think I did the turning ends right. The directions are not real clear. It seems to be written a little different than I am used to. Maybe I am just dense.
This weekend Morris and I are going to meet with some of my college friends about an hour away from here to attend the 3rd annual "Symphony in the Flint Hills". This is where the Kansas City Symphony goes out into the middle of a pasture and puts on a concert. The Flint Hills are a rolling type hills in Kansas that runs from near the northern border down into Oklahoma in the eastern third of Kansas. Most of it is still in the native grasses and is used to graze cattle in the summer. Part of it has been made into a National Preserve. The first year the concert was held on the grounds of the National Preserve. The concert runs from 6:30PM until about sunset. Everyone that I have ever heard from that went said that it was "awesome" and you did not need to be a symphony orchestra fan to enjoy it. Will need the crochet project for the ride down and back. Will have the dog with us and it is just too difficult to try to stitch with her on my lap.
Gotta get back to the sewing. Hope to have some pictures from the concert and the prairie.
Thanks to all that stop by and comment. I really appreciate you taking the time to do so. I am way behind on my reading, commenting and responding to your comments. It might be necessary just to read and comment very little, in order to get caught up. Cannot get the number waiting to be read much under 100.
