We had joy, we had fun...
As mentioned in my previous post, last week we should have been having sherry in the sun in Malaga, which the 'rona knocked squarely on the head. Still, we made the most of our lovely garden. We've put in some new plants, and the tomatoes are thriving. Yesterday we whipped up some Spanish food and sat outside enjoying it all. (I even managed to take a nice photo of it, with no view of the washing line or the terrace that backs onto ours. Heh.)
On Saturday I finally got round to finishing my shirtdress, made a mask to match (just in case I have to go in anywhere that prefers masks to be worn) and I started work on the 60s knitted jacket again. Because I'd used a substitute yarn, part of the neck hadn't knitted up quite right, and I'd been resisting ripping the dodgy bit back and reknitting it, fearing it was going to be really complicated and take ages. However, on a roll from the dress I started tackling the knit too, and it's proving really easy. Who knows, it might be finished by the end of May!
All this recent productivity ought to continue for some time as my company wants us all to work from home for a few more months. We'll have the option to carry on even after that, too, and I'm seriously considering seeing if I can work from home most of the time, going into the office one or maybe two days a week. I'll be able to go to they gym first thing in the morning, it'll save me a ton of money on train fares, and I was already trying to do one day a week at home for mental health reasons anyhow. It'll be a big change but one that looks like being totally positive.
Hmm. That's a downbeat way to end a post, isn't it? Rest assured I am upbeat and perky, and already planning more vintage sewing projects! But first, I'm going to go and read some blogs and show that appreciation. Stay safe!
