Today I finished up a sewing project! It was about time. One of those which had languished overlong on my table. Phoenix was gracious enough to grab a picture of me how I’m happiest – cup of coffee at my elbow, hair tied up, 80s Johnny Depp t-shirt, and messing about with my Pfaff.

Speaking of sewing, my post 3 in the Gimme Some Slack sew-a-long is up; tomorrow I will be posting the fourth post whereupon we install all darts, and both front and back pockets. After slack-sewing (and tutorial-ing) I have quite a bit lined up. I’ve been asked to put forth a piece for an online publication, today I had a nibble on a custom request, and I’ve a shower curtain and blouse I owe myself - plus a blazer to finish before the 12th!

So, life has been full. Enough so that on Saturday I was double-booked in the morning in both volunteer and family commitments. This, after a poor night’s sleep! Today I caught up on rest – a little – before more sewing, writing, family dates, and volunteer work. In the works: considerations for Father’s Day, a gift and a special evening for my daughter upon the completion of her first year of school, planning for Ralph’s birthday, and putting together a movie event for late summer.

Yesterday on a lunch date my mom apologized to me for not letting me know in a timely fashion, about my grandfather (and grandmother’s) ash-scattering in Southern California. This, from a woman who has had a hard time apologizing to me, her whole life. You just never know what’s coming in life, do you? I won’t be able to be there next week, but I will light a candle and meditate here in Washington state.

For now? Hot shower, large glass of water, pajama pants, and some husband-movie-date time – PRONTO

  1. Beautiful photo of you at the machine. You look not only happy but inspired.

  2. You look so pretty! I’m inspired to put on eyeliner tomorrow to try for a similarly doe-eyed effect. Also: porcupine quill earrings? Johnny Depp t-shirt? Super yes.

  3. Thank you ladies! I bought the Johnny Depp t-shirt for someone else; when I got home, after throwing out the receipt, I saw it was too large for her. It is too small for me BUT THAT DOESN’T STOP ME now does it?
