My second day of the three-day weekend has been nice. Church in the morning. I had lunch and a round of bingo in the afternoon with a good friend. (If you told me 10 years ago I’d turn into a middle-aged lady that likes to play bingo I would have shuddered! And before you organize an intervention for me, it isn’t the gambling or winning the money that is important. It is doing something with a friend.) I won 2 games for $100 in winnings. That isn’t the important part but I don’t mind when it works out that way. My friend joked that should I come to bingo immediately after church more often. (Yes, I realize God doesn’t really work that way.)
Later on in the afternoon, I got some more sewing in while I waited for my family to return home along with some in-laws so we can hot tub it! After a year, our broken hot tub is finally up and running (yee haa).
The sewing I was working on was my 1870’s polonaise. I’ve decided to have 42 buttons running down the full length of it. I haven’t decided if all the lower button holes will actually be functional but I do want them there at least decoratively. There are some fitting issues but I decided that I should be able to button the thing shut before I start taking in the side seams and darts. That will hopefully stop some of the issues I frequently have with gaping across the “girls”.
For all my Canadian friends, enjoy your holiday day. I know I will.
