Two Garments Complete

I just finished the red blouse from my storyboard and earlier today I finished my pants. I will take pictures tomorrow. I have been home all day by myself, nice, yes but at times a bit lonely! What did I do with myself?
  1. Went to a greenhouse about an hour away, it has been advertised on our local stations all spring and I really wanted to check it out. It was wonderful and all I bought was one beautiful rose bush.
  2. Went to an antique store on the way home.
  3. Planted my rose bush and a few more annuals.
  4. Finished my pants
  5. Went to the closest store for buttons (15 miles away) so I would have them for my blouse.
  6. Started my blouse.
  7. Went to town and walked just over 2 miles.
  8. Stopped by my friend's quilt shop, it is going to open in a couple of weeks, very exciting. She wants me to make purse for a store sample. It was great fun to look through all her bolts of fabric.
  9. Took her kids for ice cream.
  10. Came home and finished my blouse.

It has been a long time since I have had this much uninterrupted time at home and I am happy I was able to accomplish so much.


  1. Sounds like a wonderful day!

  2. Sounds like you had a lovely and productive day!

  3. Boy, I would LOVE a day to myself.

  4. What a wonderful day!

  5. What a great day. How fun, but I think i would have been worn out after the walk to town.

  6. That sounds like you had a wonderful day! How did you control yourself and only buy one bush, though??

  7. What a great day! Good for you!
