"Dream on it. Let your mind take you to places you would like to go, and then think about it and plan it and celebrate the possibilities. And don't listen to anyone who doesn't know how to dream." ~ Liza Minnelli
As this morning dawns with new and infinite possibilities, I sit here and wonder what I can accomplish in the next 12 or 14 hours. I have so many things that could be finished, or revisited. I have so much wonderful fabric waiting to become something new.
There are witches and skulls. Cats and bats. Spiders on fake cupcakes and spooky music in the background (thank you Amanda). I love Fall and was blessed by a friend (thank you Sara) who took some time and wrapped red and changing leaves and acorns and other signs of the season up and mailed them to me! Poor mountain girl like me down here in the flat lands with narry a sweet maple tree in sight! So sad...no Fall for Kimmie.
It seems there are not enough hours in the day to get it all done. No matter how early I rise or late I stay up! I guess we all have that problem, don't we? Too much we have to do and then add in what we want to do! But some days you get lucky and there is nothing to do except what you want and it's w i d e open!!! The freedom of possibility.
Knowing that I want to play with some fabric is a step in the right direction and I walk into my sewing room, greeted at the door by Dracula (painted by the Crafty Hag) and looking at my new extension table for Bernice Bernina, I can hardly wait to make something!
I ordered it from the Bernina dealer in Tampa and they were kind enough to mail it- I have been too busy to drive up. I also purchased a quilting foot. Next I need a walking foot and I will be good to go!
This Gothic Prairie by Jane Sassaman is calling my name and I think I see a bag in its future...speaking of gypsies and fortune telling (what a segue) have you seen any trailers for The Wolfman with Sir Anthony Hopkins, Hugo Weaving and Benicio Del Toro? It's not out until Feb 2010.
OK, little calamity readers, I am going to go find something to do...don't be afraid...the moon won't be full until Nov 2nd!
Love & Stitches,
