Doing my best to focus on the Beauty of everyday life by living simply, being content, embracing creativity and being grateful for what I have been given.
My fabrics are my crayons and my sewing room my playground.
And my day does not feel complete if I do not do pick up needle and thread...
What a week it has been!
The boys had a wonderful first week at school. But, like many of you kindly warned me, I did have a dip, all of a sudden finding myself in an empty house...
I was sorry sight, wandering aimlessly from room to room monday morning!
Day two went easier on all fronts. I even had a chance to spend the morning with Tineke. We had a lovely time and she helped me to brainstorm about my charm hexi-diamonds.
But tuesday afternoon, wednesday and thursday are a blurr: instead of the quilt-bug having its way with me, I picked up a nasty stomach bug. I saw a worried look in my husband not because I couldn't hold any food down, but because I couldn't/wouldn't stitch!!! And my brain was so fuzzy I couldn't even read words on the computer screen...
But all is well now. Things got done somehow, and yesterday I even had another 'sit + stitch' with Tineke. We laughed so hard when we noticed our miserable harvest of Klosjes for the morning's effort.
But it was fun!
So, all in all another 12 Klosjes got made.
I hope you have a lovely weekend with your loved ones. I will be reflecting on the day and all that has happened since. And in so doing offering a prayer to those who lost their lives, and all of us left behind who have witnessed our world so radically changed.
and we'll have a draw for our giveaway next week, ok?
Welcome to my little Sewing Corner. These are some of the projects I am having fun with. And what Joy it is to share them with you. Would you like some tea and stay awhile? I am sure my threads, thimbles, and fabric scraps would like to meet you...
