So Excited

As you can see I am beginning to load back my fabric and sewing supplies into my storage unit in my sewing room. It just makes your hands and body feel so good to touch that fabric and begin to dream of what you will make out of each and every piece of fabric. It is so wonderful to unload the white plastic bags from the garage and back into their proper place. I am cleaning out at the same time. It is helpful to go through everything to remember what you have and begin to create again. I am hoping that the sewing room won't take too long to get up and running again. I have some mending that needs addressing, but I only have one bra that can be worn, so making some new ones will be the first project. I hope I remember. It seems so long ago. I suspect my sewing machines will be so happy not to be covered any more and see the light and begin working again. Can you image if they could talk what they would be saying right now?

Just wanted to share with you a beautiful cactus that my neighbor gave me for Mother's Day. It is fun to have someone that enjoys plants as much as I do. We look at our new blooms on our plants some mornings together. This is a common cactus, but I have never seen it in bloom. Being from the midwest I didn't have much exposure to cactus until I moved here. They didn't look very interesting until I realized that they bloom and so beautiful.

These are the latest in my garden. Then to show you the flooring is in the house. A grasshopper to celebrate to be able to move back into the house on Wednesday.
