I have been busy since I got back -
so many ideas and things to try.
Hand stitching these beautiful flower brooches
taught to us by Julie Arkell has given me sweet hours of peaceful reflection.
The centres are just big enough
to be completed in a nice trip to a cafe,
or sitting in the sun for a couple of hours.
I have enjoyed rummaging through
my big stash to find the right fabric.
That and the search for the perfect button
are one of life's simple joys.
Just when a scrap of fabric becomes so small
its destiny is the bin, you discover new uses.
A hoarder such as myself appreciates this.
Now not even to tiniest scrap is wasted.
The days are warmer,
and daylight savings has me up with the birds.
A lucky find at the local recycle centre,
this old dressmakers torso
is perfect for display at the markets.
I am back in my groove,
and what bliss that is.
Audio books on,
studio lit with natural light,
and Bruce watching
the front door in case of cats.
These are sun bright days.
