Thank you for your kind comments on yesterday's post. Each one touched me and I sincerely appreciate the time you have taken to boost my spirits. Thank you, dear friends.
Last week as my thoughts were continually turning towards my sister, I decided I needed a little "sewing therapy." I was actually trying to clean up my sewing area (which is a lost cause, by the way), when I decided I would rather be sewing instead of cleaning. I was digging through my notions hatbox looking for bias tape. Spenser walked up and in her pip-squeaky voice asked, "Mommy, whatcha doing?" When I told her I was going to sew something for her, she became totally excited. She picked out the fabric. She stood next to me as I cut the fabric. She sat on my lap as I sewed. We did this together. Some good mommy-daughter time. (Baby was napping and the boys were in school.)
It's another "Swing Swing Smock" from the Bend-the-Rules Sewing book. I seem to work in sets. Sets of skirts. Sets of smocks. Sets of totes. As long as she likes them (and wears them), I'll keep making them for her.
