Preparation and maintenance
While I was fiddling around with Gladys I was glancing over at my cutting table where my newest fabrics were spread out. I like to look at my fabrics, make friends with them and just enjoy the colors before I start. Today, I cut everything out for the shower presents, ironed some of the projects and changed threads plus filled bobbins. There is a lot of prep work in sewing but I like to do it all at the beginning so once I start, I can just sew like a fiend.
I wish there was some maintenance I could do on me to get rid of this dang cold! This is a good day to snuggle under a quilt and do some knitting. I had purchased some yarn in LaCrosse but discovered I needed another skein, yikes! Hello Lion Yarns on the internet where I found the exact yarn I wanted plus 3 more that I didn't even know I needed. I received them all today plus my copy of the book The Bedspread. Good condition, by the way, is really good! Great mail day!
With this cold I might just prepare to sleep so this achy body can get some maintenance sleep. I am prepared to be maintained!
