This is a cute little book especially if you have scrap fabric hanging around. I read about it on a blog (?) months ago. So far I have just enjoyed looking through it and digging through my scraps but one of these afternoons I will make something. When the time is right, and the garden is in and the kids have no activities and the house is clean...then I will make a pot holder. Why does the house have to be clean for me to sew? Is it possible to procrastinate something that you love doing?

Thanks for your anniversary wishes...

I'm still in the achey heart stages of missing him, the floodgates of whining want to burst open, but lucky for you I talked to my sister for two hours yesterday and she listened to my pathetic woes, this is why she is so dear to me. Sometimes we talk about eating greens and grilling fish and other days like yesterday she picks me up out of my puddle and tells me somewhat insulting jokes about our oldest brother. This always makes me feel better.

I'm glad you're feeling better! And how great to have such a wonderful sis. I can also relate to having to have the house clean before sewing. But, for me, it's more drastic. I have to get the bed made and things straightened every morning before I can do any work (I work from home.)! Sad. :o)

What a nice little book, I just checked it out on Amazon and I can even order it over here on Germany's amazon. I think I might treat myself to something nice!! As for the clean house, I am not sure why that seems to be such a woman thing, but I hear that alot - passed down to us from our mothers perhaps?? I find myself doing the same thing, so I am glad to hear that I am in such good company with such habits. :-) ake care, debby

So glad you have your sister. :) I know that mine certainly listen to my woes on weekly, if not daily basis. Dont know what I'd do without them!

I too have to have all my chores done before I sew! Have no idea why either! :) Hope you have a lovely day! And yes...sisters are wonderful. :)

I saw that book on a blog months ago too. I looked at it in the book store and drooled all over it :) Glad you have your sister. I've always wanted one.
