Sometimes Monday

finds me longing for just one more day at home. I had the most lovely weekend. A long walk, knitting, and sewing time on Saturday. A visit with my dad, a hike with my daughters, and more time to play in my sewing room on Sunday. Time for dreaming of making another dress, fixing my backpack, and stitching up another bag. But, those dreams will need to wait. Fortunately, the calendar boxes for next weekend are blank so I might just pencil in another sewing day.

Something that is drawing back to fabric and thread are the posts on this lovely blog. This post really spoke to me. And then there is Mary, I her awesome #memademay posts on Instagram. When I was playing in my sewing room, I found this bough supplies to produce a number or fun projects. Using up the stuff on hand has been a goal of min for a few years.

So, back to work with an amazing lunch and a head full of ideas. Hope I can concentrate on the work that needs doing. Happy Monday!

  1. So much potential in those stacks of lovely fabric! I hope you soon find time for a sewing day.

  2. I do so love spending time at my sewing machine! It has been a most happy reunion! Have a blessed week, my friend!

  3. Really loving that combination of fabrics — I’m not sure if you’re planning to use them separately or together, but I do like them all!

    1. I don’t know either 😉 I bout the orange and grey to use for a bag and the dots and stripes for another bag but that was about a year ago. Summer sewing fun ahead!

  4. (thank you for the shout out!) I am finding it way easier to sew from scraps than knit from them. which is probably because I tend to round WAY UP when I buy fabric … and know more about the yarn and knitting, so can gauge my quantities better. I see that zipper and I think (again) how much I need to JUST get over my fear and do it. this month?! …meanwhile, I cast on a sweater … no buttons, no zippers, but yes a few seams 🙂
