Monday was a day off for me yesterday, and I spent it hanging out at home with myself, some fabric and threads and sewing needles. A gift arrived from Mim earlier last week of this beautiful golden and turquoise hand dyed gauze/perhaps cheese cloth that I promised to put to use immediately. The batik on the far right is a fat quarter from a quilt shop. It's for a quilt I cannot show until the end of March... but that's good as I plan to spend a lot of time as I did today adding hundreds of stitches by hand.
I loved my lazy day at home alone...Henry spent most of it outside in the sun. I ate lunch on the patio, watched flocks of little birds diving into the water filled bird bath; saw a second daffodil open up to full bloom; did some wash, swifted the floors, but pretty much sat on the couch with thread and needle in hand. Sheer bliss for me it was!
My daughter sent me these sweet photos of my 6 and a half year old grand daughter, who had just had her very very long hair cut short! (I turned them into a collage) She has a best friend, named Ella, and wanted her hair cut like Ella's. She and Ella have been best friends since babyhood. They live down the street from one another. This wonderful friendship has the potential to be like mine with my friend Patty!
I talked to my friend Patty on the phone today too. Patty turned 70 in Dec.
That's a long time to have a very best friend!
Well today I will return to my day job!
What are you up to today?
