Back in June I entered a giveaway of the also-very-talented Melissa Hubbell– at her blog – The Garden of Pink Shadows, and to my happy surprise, I won! The prize was a great little odds & ends scrap pack for me to make my own fabric collage with…
Of course life has been full of changes the past few months, and I feel like I am just now getting my sea legs, adjusting to the time change, coming up for air etc. There has not been much time for trying out a new craft.
But on Monday, on a last-minute whim, I grabbed the pack, along with some old embroidery supplies I had and some extra fabric pieces, stuffed them all in a bag, and took them with me to my grandmother’s house, where we were having dinner that night.
Sitting on my Maw’s screened in porch, working on needle-pointish things is just about as good as it gets in terms of relaxing and happiness.
Of course her dismay at my lack of thimble skills was pretty darn cute too. “I should have made you learn how to use one when you were little! Shame on me!” she declared more than once.
