Sew happy.

I love to sew. I don’t do it nearly often enough, so when a happy surprise (a godmother’s birthday present to my daughter) breaks the logjam that exists only in my brain, it’s a true delight. Accompanied by my new favorite Pandora variety channel, Nina Simone, The Avett Brothers and Eddie Vedder (“you’re weird, Mom” my children informed me), Astrid and I spent the afternoon in the library sewing, singing, and enjoying the view of the sunny day. She made a pillowcase (she refused to be photographed with it), and I made a long overdue baby present.

So thank you, Habitual, for the kimono pattern you were kind enough to share months ago; it’s beautiful. Thank you, Sew Memphis, for your fabrics that are no less fabulous after sitting on my shelf for several months. And thank you, friend, for the tiny pink sewing machine. Bernard hasn’t figured out how to make it work yet, but it inspired a happy day of fun nonetheless. And that’s all I have to say about that.
