One thing that should change back is the availability of cotton lawn. It is a thin cotton that drapes a lot better than the quilting cotton we use for dresses. I am trying to calculate how much I can bring home in my suitcase.
It looks like the fabric we get at JoAn fabrics, and it has the lightweight feeling of soft muslin, but it is closer woven and is printed.
Scenes of travel-trunk from the movie "Daddy Long-Legs."
I attended the wedding of a childhood friend from the old days back in the 1960's when I lived in Tasmania. You might remember my writing about the Martin family; one of the members of that family got married. The brother, who stayed with us in Oregon a few months ago, is still on a motorbike trip . He began in Alaska and has now gone as far as Columbia, South America. I visited with his sisters and mother and their children today at the wedding. We will be getting together again while I am still here. As I said, my social life is expanding.
When I returned to my mother's caravan, all the "cousins" in the caravan park called out "Hi, Cousin," and asked me how I liked the wedding. They know every thing I do.
Tomorrow one of the residents at the caravan park is taking us in her car to worship services in Frankston. The ladies of the Lord's church have asked me to speak to them so tonight I am preparing a lesson and will post it later.
Sunday afternoon we go to a Mother's Day dinner hosted by one of my brothers.
I am still sewing and have done a few more things in the caravan. I will take lots of pictures to share.
By the end of the day I am so tired and even discouraged and want to cut my trip short and go home, sleep in a nice bed and wake up to familiarity. The next morning I feel a little better and think I could manage to stay here another day. I am supposed to return on the 31st of May but if needed, can extend my trip.
Since I am able to video Skype my family twice a day, it makes it a lot easier to stay.
