The kind of busy that I like to be is where I can accomplish something and not have to do the same thing over again tomorrow or next week - like cleaning up dog hair - that's an every day thing. And believe me, I've had plenty of that kind of busy on this trip with the two grand dogs. German Shepherds are the biggest hair factories in the world. Ole brushes them every night and collects the hair in a paper grocery bag. I think by the time we get home the bag will be completely full.
I don't have the room here to spread out like I do at home in my sewing room, but somehow I manage. This year I brought along all the makings for a king-sized duvet cover for my bedroom at home. The carpet is steel gray with teal and cranberry flecks in it, so the duvet cover coordinates. I started it when we arrived at Big Brother's place the beginning of January, and yesterday I put the last of the top stitching on it. The top stitching is done in a silver metallic thread - just a bit of sparkle to it in the right light. Today I'll add the backing and the zipper and - Taa Daa - it will be ready to slip on the comforter when I get back home.
I also have enough fabric left to make a coordinating bedskirt, pillow shams and curtains. So I still have a bit of sewing left to complete the entire project, but the rest is all easy stuff.
Obviously, so does Lucy because every time I start to work on it she thinks it's a license to sit in my lap on top of my work. This prohibits accomplishing much, but then it's nice to have "kitty love" now and then.
