Not a whole lot going on over here, but thought I'd check in anyway. I've been busy with my sewing, but that's about it, so I can't decide if there is any point in sharing it as always. I sometimes wonder if anyone finds it either:
3. or worse of all....boastful, lol
I imagine it's just like so many other things. You are either interested in things like sewing or your not. I find myself MAINLY gravitating towards sewing blogs, sewing tutorials, sewing fabric, sewing projects, and even sewing businesses, lol. I know....SHOCKER.... Not to say I don't enjoy many other types of blogs and posts because I certainly do, but if I am caught up on my regular bloggers I follow, then I am off in search of what I can find in the sewing world. I keep myself busy with all of the things that NEED to be done of course as well such as bed making, dishes, cooking, laundry, grocery shopping and the like. And of course my bible studies take up some of my time as well. But my hubby leaves here at around 6:30 am, (and I am always showered and dressed with the bed made and things straightened by then) and doesn't return until 6:00 or even 6:30 pm, so it does make for a pretty LONG day to fill. Don't get me wrong. I am NOT bored. I am usually busy....there's ALWAYS something I NEED to do, or WANT to do, and I am definitely not complaining. I am very grateful that I don't need to work, and that I am blessed with health that is good enough that I can enjoy the simple pleasure of sewing. Our plan is that hubby will retire in 2 or 3 more years and then I imagine (if the Lord wills it and I am still here..wink) my life will change somewhat and I won't find soo much unspoken for time on my hands. I will go ahead and admit I guess that I do feel guilty sometimes. I know MANY who are still knee deep in the trenches (as I call it) and must trudge off to work everyday (like my husband) or who are busy helping raise grandkids or are at least involved in their day to day care, or are very busy with volunteer work either at church or in the community, and I feel as I don't do much at all in comparison. But then of course that's where the danger comes in doesn't it? Comparing myself to others has NEVER gone very well for me. My arthritis keeps me from doing some things I feel like I might do that could be both productive and helpful to others, but it is the old it is what it is.....Sooooo, I guess for me this is me in this season of my life. What can I say? I sew....lol. So I will quickly show you my latest projects, and then I have just a couple other things I might mention.
|IT LOOKS PRETTY GOOD WITH THE SHORTS I THINK....LOL|
|FIRST THERE WAS THIS WHICH AGAIN I KNOW I ALREADY SHOWED YOU...BUT A TOP AND LEGGINGS|
|AND YESTERDAY I ADDED THIS LITTLE PAIR OF SHORTS. I LOVE THEM! OR I THINK IT'S JUST THAT I LOVE LOVE THIS FABRIC!|
|THEN, I HAD THIS HAPPY FABRIC FOR A WHILE, AND I JUST DIDN'T KNOW WHAT TO DO WITH IT. IT IS CUTE, BUT THIN, AND I DIDN'T HAVE MUCH. BUT I THOUGHT IT MATCHED WITH THIS FABRIC PRETTY WELL.THIS IS HOW IT LOOKS UNTUCKED WITH THE SHORTS.|
|AND NOW TUCKED IN...HMMM THINK I LIKE IT BETTER UNTUCKED|
We went down to my son's church on Sunday and that too was really good. It was hard too I am not going to lie as the time change on Sat. night meant we were leaving a WHOLE HOUR earlier as well, lol.
That's it for now. Hope you too are all having a good week. Love and blessings to you all! Debbie
