Sewing Alone Retreat

When I recall the past, we usually find that it is the simplest things-not the great occasions-that in retrospect give off the greatest glow of happiness.
-Bob Hope

I’m having my own stitch in…wanna come? I love to oversize units and trim them up to a perfect size. I love the fabric spaghetti the trimmings make. YUM YUM. It is calorie free so eat up.

I love to jump in the crayon box with all the colors. Isn’t it purty? Kinda like dancing with the rainbow. humm what could I be creating? Why do I need so many colors? I’ll never tell (well at least not now)

I love the mess (well kinda). Lets just say I don’t mind the mess but I tidy up daily. The Silver Thimble does not work well in chaos…that is because my mind is always in design overdrive chaos, I need organization everywhere else.

OOH BABY that looks like my stash just barfed up a basket full of fabbies! Time to fold and put it back here. That top shelf looks like I’m about to have an avalanche. SHEESH keeping the stash room/closet is a dad gum full time job.

Or here!

So I didn’t go to Market…I didn’t go to the mountains to sew with buddies. I stayed home and I am sewing my brains out. I went to the sewing room yesterday at 6:30 am and left at 10pm. Sir Quilt Dude came home and scrounged up some left overs. Here is what I ate. (sans Tuna sandwich and bowl of little carrots which I consumed). I’m perfectly happy. See the apple with the sticker on it? I washed it so don’t send me notes about washing my fruit..I ate the sticker, good fiber!

And for all the hours I have been in the sewing room this is what I have produced. Today I will finish these. Hint: gonna use that box of rainbow ALL day…..

I had so much fun I’m going to do it again today.

Tomorrow…a give a way…….stay tuned.
