It’s been a while since my last blog. Unfortunately not much has gone on that was keeping me positive–until today! It had grown colder over the last couple of days (and here in Texas anytime it’s 60° or below, that’s cold!). Anyway, I had to go look for some warmer clothing…
When I went out to my garage to look for some sweaters and such (which I could not find, by the way! Lol), I came across some quilts and other projects that I had made before. So, of course I had to bring those inside. Then, after I brought those things in, I noticed that a quilt I had made was needing some repairs to it. So, I had to go through some boxes of scraps, looking for fabrics I could use that were similar enough in shades that I could use.
Finding nothing that I could use in the fabric I had inside, I went back to the garage to look through some other fabric I had. Looking through that last batch of fabric had me going down memory lane, bringing me back to when I had only one child (I have three boys now). Back then, I was involved in a quilting group, and I was the youngest member. I remembered many times when I would load up John, his play pen, his toys, my sewing machine, and the fabric from the projects I was making. It would take me about 15 minutes to get everything loaded or unloaded, but then I got to sew for 2-3 hours and socialize at the same time. How times have changed!
Anyway, I finally found the fabrics I needed, and took all the fabric from the last box of memories (fabrics that I hadn’t seen in ages!), and I knew I would start working again on my seeing and quilting projects again.
THAT IS WHAT I CALL HAPPINESS!!!
