Down in the dumps

Well, here it is January 10th, and I'm still not finished with the Triangle Island quilt. I'm almost done with the quilting, but my brother passed away Nov 28th and I haven't had the heart to pick it back up again. Well, and then there's the church issues.

I've been trying to get myself interested in sewing again, so I spent a day last week at my aunt's "taking" a pattern from my great-grandma's 1915 confirmation dress. I was successful in making a mockup of the bodice so I could fit it to me, and now I'm working on increasing the pattern. If I wanted to, I could really get moving on it, but I'm just having a hard time getting back into anything fun. Maybe if I wasn't watching my church self-destruct I would feel more up to some fun. Anyway, the Mid-Mitten TOGA (Treadle On Gathering and Academy) is Saturday, so D.V., there's no snow and I can see some friends in Ovid. There's a bright spot in this week.
