I am a serial re-arranger. I do it all the time, to all different parts of the house, at any given time of the day. I move things about a bit, and then think to myself “it’s perfect.” “Don’t touch a thing.” But as sure as I will add more fabric to a pile already too big, I will be shifting things about again. My most recent adjustment happened in the kitchen on a little buffet at the end of the room. It had become sort of a catchall for whatever items didn’t fit anywhere else, until now. I tracked down the cutest polka dot pitchers that went just wonderfully with the colors of my kitchen, and for now, I think it’s perfect and I won’t touch a thing! 😉
The other day, I felt a bit of strong sunshine on my face and I got a little excited! Not that I am trying to rush away the winter, but the sooner the warmth comes, the sooner I can enjoy my most favorite spot of the house: the front porch! Oh I know that we are still weeks away from that luxury, but I know it’s coming and that is all that matters! In the meantime, I will just have to pacify myself with finding something new to wear for Easter this year. Hee hee!
As far as actual sewing has gone, it has been a bit tricky. If you follow my blog, you may recall that I had sent my machine in for a tune-up while I was down in Florida basking in the sun. Well, it took a bit too long, and with a lot of “patience” and some minor use of a few voodoo dolls, I have it back. So all is right with the world again, and I have a lovely tutorial planned for the end of the month to share with all of you! 🙂 However, during the dark days of no machine, I did realize the importance that the sewing has for me, which made this image all the more true:
I am also happy to announce the winner of the Les Belles Bouclettes Easter-themed giveaway!
