A cousin’s wedding (Hurricane Irene cancelled the original date). Thanksgiving at my nephew’s house. The death of a grand-niece. A new haircut. The death of a young cousin. A surprise birthday party for my husband. A new granddaughter. Visiting with my aunts and uncles. The death of my last great-uncle. High school and college graduations. Our annual backyard barbeque (during a power outage). A family tree quilt for the family reunion. A large family reunion (110 people) in South Carolina. My last child is now a college freshman. A surprise 30th birthday gathering for a niece. Plenty of family dinners. A lot of business traveling. A new client to design and sew for. Living in the moments.
When I have something to say, I say it. When I have nothing I want to say, I am silent. I haven’t had much I’ve wanted to say about sewing because sewing has been such a tiny part of my last year and a half. Rarely one of the moments in my current life. Now I have things I want to share. I have been inspired by a number of young women with an interest in sewing.
It’s nice to be back.
