This has been a terrible year for me, especially sewing & correspondence.
Even with a new great-grandson, I can't get myself in gear to do much of
But today, I really have felt good about sewing. The placemats, I was
making for my sister when she died, have all been put away and the machine
cleaned, as well as most of the sewing room.
I cut out 2-cloth books for Nicholas, who will be 6-months old on Sunday;
and I have the machine threaded to sew them tomorrow. My daughter, his
Grandmother, posted a short, 30-second video on Facebook last week of him
finding a toy and holding it up, which was a hint to make him some books. I
made all the grandchildren several of these cloth books, using a good
interfacing to make them durable, but washable & dryable for ease to keep
clean. All loved them.
And tonight, I am reading and posting on alt.sewing. I do feel good, like
renewing old acquaintances I've missed.
