Buttons2When I was young, I used to admire intelligent people.

As I grow older, I also grow wiser and now I admire kind people

Even after all this time, the Sun never says to the Earth ‘you owe me!’.  Look what happens with a love like that – it lights the whole sky!

I’ve been receiving some lovely comments on my blog and my facebook page recently, which has been so encouraging!                   Thank you all, so much! ♥♥

One lady in America emailed me this lovely message:

“I have no talents nor skills to sew, and yet, your blog  makes me feel that I may want to give it a try”                                                                                

I do hope she does give it a go! It is so encouraging to think that my little adventures in my sewing room might just inspire someone else to pick up a needle and thread and begin their own sewing journey!

I like that thought.

Think I’ll hold on to it for a wee while 🙂

♥♥♥ Happy stitching everyone!  ♥♥♥

Fabric overload

There is a very fine line between the sheer size of my fabric stash and mental illness

Sewing is my therapy 😉

My husband said if I bought any more fabric he’d leave me.
I miss him sometimes …… 😉
