This post should have been done weeks ago...weeks!!
An email came to me from a blogging friend in Kentucky saying that she had some fabric pieces that I might use, and would I like to have them. The very thought of getting some fabric in the mail tickled me to death.
I was expecting a package of a few small fabric pieces, in fact, my reply to her was something about making dolls and how I used lots of small fabric pieces. Well, you can probably imagine my shock when the mail man brought a package too big and too heavy for the mail box and left it on the front steps.
All these beautiful fabrics! For days, in shock, I stood and stared, sorted and folded, and thought of things to make.
Most of these pieces were anywhere from four to six yards each and some of them I have already cut. Do you know that it actually hurt my heart to cut the first piece? Well, it did.
There was also a stack of fat quarters, think that's what these are called...
Fabric is expensive, so for me it has been finding pieces on sale, sometimes buying colors and prints that I didn't really like, but could afford; even searching for fabric at yard sales and thrift stores. Now, I've got my own little fabric shop right inside the teeny tiny sewing room. Diane, you have a heart of gold!
So, it has been like Christmas morning here ever since this package arrived. Diane is probably tired of hearing me say "thank you", but again, thank you Diane.
Oh gosh, back to reality. It's the back again. Yesterday I got another steroid injection in my spine for the painful herniated disks. Kinda funny, but Poppy drove me to my appointment in Wake Forest on Tuesday. Five minutes before the injection, the X-ray machine quit working. My appointment was rescheduled and cancelled three times this week.
You are not allowed to drive yourself after getting this injection. So yesterday, Shelby was kind enough to drive me. We did get to have lunch together and go in a couple of thrift stores. Always fun to have a little time with Shelby. Glad that steroid injection is over though.
Guess I need to get up from this computer and get busy!
What a difference you've made in my life! Thank you for your friendship!
