It has been awhile since I have played in my sewing room and I have missed it. I have to remember that I am the type of person who has to have fun doing what my heart loves once in awhile. When I put "me time" on the back burner for to long ....well.... it bothers me. So today, I broke out some fabric and began to make something.
While attaching the binding, my middle finger was getting so sore. I remembered the sewing kit my mother gave me that had been my grandma's when she was alive. I quickly pulled it out of the cabinet and slipped it onto my finger. This September, my grandma has been gone from us for a whole year. It does not seem possible. While sewing on the binding, memories of my sweet and precious Grandma began to wash over me. I remember her hands and imagined her with this very same thimble on her finger working away at one of her many projects. Goodness I miss her.
I had a couple little strips left of fabric from my project so I put together a little ruffled kitchen towel for the oven door. It is amazing what some fabric and thread can do to lift ones spirit.
