Does overlocking a triangle count as sewing?

If so then I get to add making a cheerful, smiley hearts sling for DD to my list. :-)
As it is:
Hug rugs for school done - Check.
Nightie for me - On hold.
Ottobre Jacket - cut out and sitting in the general vicinity of the sewing desk.
I really need this but it's waiting on some spare time (if I can ever remember what that is). I'm making Jacket 17 from Ottobre 02-2006 but I'm using a Ponti Roma knit instead of a woven and I'm not going to line it.

I have a mental image of what I'm aiming for, so we'll have to see if reality matches. ;-)

Meanwhile, any faint hopes I had that a broken arm might slow down my youngest DD have been abandoned. I got a phone call from school last week to say she'd banged her head not just once, but twice, and wasn't feeling too good. Understatement of the year! White as a ghost, nauseaous, dizzy and double vision, on top of the fact that she'd had concussion only ten days before, meant we got to see another 5 hours of life in the Emergency Dept. (And it sure gets embarassing when ED staff remember you, lol.)
Only a few days on and she's already bouncing around again. Sigh. I can feel the grey hairs multiplying.
Thanks Kat, Vicki and Alicia for the thoughts about my DD. I sure hope she remembers the hours I've spent in the ED, then the hours sleep-deprived waking her every two hours because I've told her that when I'm old and break my hip, she's the one who gets first nursing duties, lol.

I can't wait to see that jacket in the knit. I bet it will be so comfy.

Kids! I can vouch for the fact that trips to the ER give us mothers grey hair. :/ I hope your DD slows down so you can mend. :)

Btw, I have given you an award on my blog. I think after two trips to the ER you deserve an award for that alone. :)
