We packed our suitcases, filled the cooler with goodies, dropped off the dogs at the sitters, and were on our way. We stopped here for lunch, a bit of a detour, but worth it! (If you are local, it's a must go. Myra, we should so do lunch here.) Finally, with full bellies we turn onto the street in front of the beaches, our beachfront condo building visible just a stone's throw away. We are calculating in our heads how long it'll take to unload the car and hit the beach, wondering if we will beat the afternoon storms.
But we are stopped by a police officer, his cruiser blocking the road with lights flashing. Surely he will let us get to our beach condo, it's so close! Nay. A gas leak has occurred right in front of the condo. No one gets past the roadblock. Geez, what are the odds?
So, we turn around and head back home until we get the all clear to head back. In the meantime, I will sew. (Which is cool, because truth be told, I was feeling a bit odd about not taking any sewing with me.) The hubs? Went to work. Yes, really. I kid you not. DD is hanging out with me, just chilling and looking cute and summery in her sundress.
I will blog after vacay about the sewing I've been doing, some good, some meh. Right now I'm gonna run and go whip out a tee.
Parting shot - this is up next on the cutting table after vacation (if it ever starts!). Not sure of the patterns, yet. What would you make with the scrumptious knits?
What's up next on your cutting table? Please share, I get so inspired by you all!
Be well, and happy sewing,
