The Real Story of the Stitch

When I sew during the day...

I look like I'm very intent and focused.

But then I have to remind Johanna that only her sister can use the scissors,

then I leave my table and confiscate scissors,

And then I have to pick one of these Munchkins up and bounce them around the room until contentment,

And maybe, just maybe, I finish my project, usually completely different then planned, and satisfyingly reap the rewards of big smiles.

Sounds familiar...:) Except I don't remember the last time I was brave enough to sew with my little hooligans around :) But it sounds so much like my days! :)

I love this post.

In the background of your picts, is that all fabric you have on hand for any time the creative juices are flowing? Amazing! Do you find sales, or what do you do?

I love your blogs, You are so talented, and a very gifted writer, and I love how your visions come into action to share with everyone. I thought of you a lot while watching the movie tonight with the girls.
