How have you been? The Sarcastic household is doing well. Work is busy as usual. The hubs is one week away from being home for good. For those familiar with the military, this means ACAP-ing will be complete and official retirement date will be Feb. 1. So, that’s several weeks to do nothing but hunt our property (which we just decided we will extend the lease for a total of 12 months now, with additional time still to be determined) and to sort through his years of collected stuff. (Military uniforms, old police uniforms, etc. Again, those familiar with military men probably understand the mentality, “I may need it for a deployment,” or just “someday”.) I’ve gone through 4 household moves, essentially by myself, unpacking and packing. Whether we stay or move again, the next one will have FAR LESS BOXES. Yes, I mean it. It’s always been such a stress point for me and one I could hide (even though it really bugged me) in our other homes but here, the place is just too small. It may sound crazy, but it is what it is. Mostly, I don’t care if he wants to keep it all, I just want it all to have a home. That’s my wish. :)
Anyway, I am also excited because I finally got my sewing mo jo back. It’s been on hiatus but yesterday, I decided enough was enough. I made this top for a co-worker of mine. She’s a sweet lady who truly deserves to be reminded to enjoy her downtime. The Moda Make Life line was perfect. I just wanted something simple so I took fat quarters and made this top. I will back it with that wonderfully soft minkee! A butter yellow one, I think. Just perfect to cuddle under and read, I hope. Or, keep at her desk if she wants a little comfort at the office.
So I ask again, how have you been, my dear reader?
