Yesterday, our summer afternoon routine was interrupted by -- well -- you know -- another summer afternoon thunderstorm. This one began just as we were about to leave and run errands -- so instead -- we stayed. I kept thinking that it would have been a great day to work on the blocks for "The Farmer's Wife" quilt-along. Since the book is not in my possession yet, it was a good opportunity to straighten up my sewing space -- and look through my fabric stash -- so I did. I realized after a bit that I have never really just looked through my fabric stash without actually "looking" for a particular piece of fabric. Am I that busy? :-) This was actually a fun thing to do! Sofia kept me company while she quietly organized her collection of completed polymer clay creations. My collection of fabric spans quite a few decades -- so I reminisced to Sofia about the history of some of the pieces while I semi-organized them. Since she was dreamily pre-occupied with her own organizing, every now and then I would get either a glance or a little nodding gesture -- but she really wasn't talking much... So, I did a little daydreaming of my own while accomplishing about one fourth of the room.
Just a few more lovely rainy days and I'll be all done! :-)
Note: The ironing board setup shown in the photo is a bit inadequate. It is a small ironing board placed on top of the sewing cabinet that houses my mother's early 1960's Singer sewing machine. I have tons of memories attached to that sewing machine and cabinet -- so it may not be pretty, but it gives me the warm fuzzies when I do my work there.
