I have 55 spools of thread and not single one is red!

This skirt is my polyester double knit. I love the way it looks on me and today I received several complements on it. I call the print firework flowers.
This should have been my polyester double knit red plaid skirt. But I have 55 different spools of thread and the only one with the right color red has this much thread on it.
Cannot complete the skirt with that and I am too lazy, tired, disgusted to go to the store and buy more. When every I buy thread I buy 3 spool per project because I know will use it all in time.
I have brick red but cannot bring myself to use it. In my mind the fire engine red is the best color to use to complete this skirt. So I am going to work my creating a projects to do list and draw some designs. I finally place an order for some swatches of fabric for the designs that I submitted to sunflower. I check the mail every day.

I did complete my apron and pot holders that match the kitchen curtains.

The maid forgot to wash ALL the dishes.

I do not like this picture of me but it's about time for me to put one up so now you have a face to go with these words. Hello everyone in the blogging community it nice to meet you.

I forget...was the apron too short? Or too long?

Do you still have your invisible thread? Use that.

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.  
DK I think she will be working on dresses.    I could just scream with exci…
S Sew Together!!Good day!  How was your weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend the sewing event was a beautiful success! 


The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!  


It was so happy that all enjoyed themselves.  I look forward to seeing the finish items.  I have appointments with some for one on one training and mentoring and the excitement is infectious.  I was very happy with the small event  I look forward to doing this again.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
