Recently, I felt like Rumpelstiltskin. Does that ever happen to you?
You know- you're sitting in your sewing chair with the machine whirring along and three big spools of gold thread whipping around in circles and all of a sudden you think "I'm spinning gold!".
No? Just me?
At first, I thought that I may be Rapunzel, but after mulling that over for a few minutes I realized that she's the one with the hair. I'm sure they get mistaken for each other a lot though, what with the tricky "R" names.
I've got sewing on the brain, pretty much all the time these days (except for when I'm mixing up fairy tale characters). I talked to my sister on the phone this morning for at least 30 straight minutes about nothing but business until I finally realized what I was doing, apologized, and asked what was new with her.
When Steve gets home from work, I try to give him a few minutes of down time before I explode with questions and new ideas and things I need his help with. Mostly involving fabric design, these days. You can see one of our Charlotte themed designs in the picture above- super exciting!
I made some headway on the 100 handle goal yesterday- I finished 33 before I ran out of both wool and gray thread and my neck was stuck at a weird angle. Today will be spent restocking supplies and plowing onward. I'm also trying my very first recipe from the new cookbook. I'll do a full book review on Friday, so stop in if you like that sort of thing.
