All my scattering moments are taken up with my needle

Apart from yoga, meditation, reading,
it has to be one of the most serene things to do

In Seattle you haven't had enough coffee until
you can thread a sewing machine while it's running
My granddaughter came to spend a few weeks with me,
and I decided to teach her to sew.
After I had gone through a lengthy explanation
of how to thread the machine,
she stepped back, put her hands on her hips,
and said in disbelief,
"You mean you can do all that,
but you can't play my Game Boy?"
After a few weeks of secret sewing projects for
the Junk Gypsy HGTV series
(which will premiere in next Spring
and run for 13 weeks)
my cup is full of sewing satisfaction!
