I am so thrilled with this quilt. Thank you to Katy for the sew along that gave me the prompt.
The children went off with their mother for the weekend.
I am watching a movie that makes me laugh. I have not watched a movie in 6 months. I am watching this so I do not have to pick out my errors in this quilt with angst, being so distracted by the movie, it is now done with ease. Ease instead of angst...a winner.
Today I found out that Diane Keaton is 75. In a few months I will be 74 . I also found out that I do not look like Diane Keaton, nor do I have her energy, nor do I have her money. Did I do something wrong?
The morning light says to me: Oh, dear.. I kind of like my eccentric self just the way I am.
I have no television stations working in my house. So, Netflex it is.
Some people take vacations at the beach. Some at the mountains..and some just go anywhere for fun or connect with family...Me...very little family. One cousin, one brother with issues, one sister overwhelmed with her lot. One daughter across the land in Portland, One son in dire straits...so I am the keeper of the light. Exhausting.
I vacation in my brand new sewing room all set up by my friends. It is grand! Grand for this time of my life anyway. In my youth, I traveled the wide world. At my age, I no longer go wide, but deep. That important travel is harder for sure.
A post is not ever the same without our Aoife.
As my daughter explains....two very needy beings.
Lessons learned Fabriconsale.com and www.fabricwholesaledirect.com seem to be the same place. Today, fabric needy me went on site at fabriconsale.com and bought African fabric for $3.99 a yard. Somehow, I forget how much fabric cost. Because when I see just lovely African fabric for $4.99 a yard, I just skip right over it like it is not the bargain that it is....sigh...then it is out of stock by the time I realize that fabric is now $12 a yard elsewhere....I am a slow learner.
Did I mention how much I miss my fabric artist friends and any art or creative friend, for that matter??. Delta variant is really cramping my style. Zoom is OK, but there is nothing like hanging with like minded friends as they ply their art.
