scraps...

Looking through scraps of fabric as I was cleaning my sewing table, I realized that if I should die today and not get to go home first, people would know these things about me:

  1. I start many projects and you many not ever know how many I actually complete.
  2. Someone I sew for loves, and I don't say this lightly, LOVES Snoopy
  3. I rarely make things for myself, more often than not, my sewing projects are brother/son related.
  4. Not only do I love to sew, but I love all things colorful and/or sparkly...beads, yarn, threads, ribbon, shells, fabric, pens (I don't know why, it's difficult for me to pass up a set of colorful markers in the office supply store), fabric glue (does it stick better if it matches the color of fabric I'm gluing? Probably not), sewing thingies...did I say thingies? I don't know, I have a protractor, several rulers, a yardstick, some measuring tapes, a compass, a flat cutting out thing that I've never used, all in many colorful hues.
What does this say about my character? I don't know, but I'm headed home to sew this afternoon - of course it's a last minute project which I've had ample time to complete but didn't and it has to be done by tomorrow and these are my thoughts - I just have to say it, I didn't actually mention Paw Lee or Princess Phat ONE TIME in this blog...until the very end.

Hummm, this set me wondering too. What would people think of me? What would people think of the way that I dress...or would someone do my make-up the way that I do, or my hair the way that I like it?

Food for thought here, my dear little friend!
Big hugs!

Shawna, there´s always something in your posts that makes me pause a little and think, that´s something i really like about you.
We are very similar you and I in the way we think although we are so very far away from each other.
Thankyou for sharing your thoughts.
