We've been getting a lot of storms lately. Frankly, I love a good thunder storm! I love the breeze that comes with it. I love the way the air smells just before. I love watching the thunder out my window. I love the sound of pounding rain. And, I love the sky just beforehand. I took this photo the other night, as I was waiting for the storm to blow in. The colors of the sky were so impressive, this photo can't even do it justice. It truly is one of those things that makes me appreciate being alive.
After a long work week I was greeted on Friday by a package of fabric. What a lovely thing to come home to! I'm planning on using both of these in the quilt but primarily bought them for other ventures. I can't wait to sew with them.... although I'm focused on working on a dress right now.
I'm also in the process of trying to rearrange my living room to accommodate a permanent home for the sewing machine. Before I completely rearrange, I need to acquire a table for it. (Maybe I'll find something at the flea market tomorrow?) But the poor (nameless!) thing needs a regular home. The kitchen table just isn't cutting it anymore, mostly because I miss having a table to eat at.
Tomorrow will be lesson two of the beaded earring series. I'm also thinking of other summer camp things.... hope they come to fruition.
