I won't be getting my 30 minutes of sewing in first thing in the morning tomorrow; I'm going to have to fit it in sometime later in the day. Instead, I'll be taking my dad to the hospital for surgery to have a small tumor removed. The surgery itself isn't major, but he is, after all, nearly 82 years old and takes various blood thinners and cholesterol medications so it's not without risk. If you're the praying kind, please remember my dad in your prayers tomorrow. I've stocked up on new sewing magazines and a book to pass the time while I wait. I might take my computer...I think the hospital has free wi-fi.
I have semi-committed myself to Marji's Great Coat Sew-Along. It doesn't start until July, so the 30/30 project will be complete (unless, of course, it works out so well that I continue it) and there's plenty of time to purchase fabric and other supplies. I happen to have a coat pattern in my stash, Vogue 8346. I want the coat to wear with jeans (and trousers, if I ever get around to making any) so probably a little bit shorter than the red one shown on the envelope. And probably in gray. Or maybe in red. Who knows, I have a little bit of time to decide.
