Thank you for your words yesterday.
Seems we all struggle at times,
and hearing it from others helps to know we're not alone
in overcoming our shortcomings.

On a happier note!
We live in a small house.
That's not the happier note, but
I'm getting to it. I always looked longingly
at blogs whose seamstresses had their own
space: spread out and make a mess, and don't vacuum
threads, fold up patterns and tuck away fabric every night if
you don't want to! I didn't think that was a possibility for me,
until a couple weeks ago Ryan suggested to turn the art room
into a studio for me! We had high hopes of the baby dills spending
hours and hours creating away in that bright, beautiful, sunlit room.
But if you're a mom, you know that the kids go wherever you are
...the shower, the water closet, hiding under a bed for some
peace a quiet. So, the transformation has begun. The
desk and table have been set up, and much
sewing has already taken place,
but now the fun begins:
Orange will preside,
as I begin the decorating,
and the adding of little touches.
As I complete my projects I will share
tutorials on some fun little ways to add a
personal touch to your sewing area, big or small.
Of course you may choose the hue of your hankering,
but you'll be seeing an awful lot of orange around these
parts. If you come across something orange that might
be calling my name, for Sam's sake, give me a holler!
My hands have been at it with spray paint. The
untrained eye might mistake them for a
botched tan-in-a-bottle job,
but you and I know better.
