A box arrived at my doorstep. I had not ordered anything lately but when I saw the return address I knew what it contained.
The box jumped when I touched it. It gave out a little moan and then what sounded like a muffled shout.
Carefully I took my letter opener and slit the tape. The sounds and rumble that were coming from inside gave me pause. Did I dare open this while alone? I felt the pulse of the flaps on the box as the tape gave way.
an explosion of color burst forth from the box!
YES! It was the latest fabric shipment from Island Batik! The Fall/Winter 2015 line.
The observance of National Sewing Month began in 1982 with a
proclamation from President Ronald Reagan declaring September as
National Sewing Month “In recognition of the importance of home sewing
to our Nation.”
September is a time to celebrate our
passion, but we know the creative, therapeutic and calming effects of
sewing( and quilting) are joys that we can celebrate throughout the entire year.
When my BFF grabbed a $19 fare, she came down for a couple of days from
Buckeye country. What fun to catch up and enjoy spending time together.
We enjoyed lunch at a favorite restaurant. Sitting outside and taking in the view of the bay.
And you just can't miss an opportunity to visit a quilt shop.
This shop had a flood back in January, and it didn't seem like they had
replenished much of their fabric stock. It was a little disappointing,
but hopefully they will get back on their feet again soon.
