I'm running on empty…empty of brain cells, that is.
I forgot to change the presser foot when I switched stitches and broke a needle. I rarely break needles, but when I do, it's a doozy! This one went in four or five different directions, one piece hitting my arm. I was wearing glasses, so my eyes were protected.
So, I walked away from the sewing machine and spent a few minutes reading a chapter of Northanger Abbey to the kids. Once they're finished cleaning the kitchen, I'll read another and only then will I consider sitting back at the sewing machine.
We're all coming down with colds, so we've started on oregano oil and grapefruit seed extract, per a friend's instructions. Jona's also acting as my second brain. Before I do anything, I run it by her to make sure it's not too foolhardy or complicated and will really get me the results I'm aiming for.
By God's grace and strength, I will make it. Prayers are always appreciated. I also have some help coming tomorrow: Jona and Karen, mother of the maid of honor. Jona reminded me that, except for my dress, we're down to those piddly finishing details, much hand-work, and that I'm almost done. And my dress will be pretty simple as I've already done so many. That was encouraging!
