Saturday Still Life

Posted by PicasaI bought this piece of batik fabric at a rummage sale today.  It is just gorgeous.  I can't decide what I will do with it so for now, it is a tablecloth.

If you're visiting San Francisco

You may want to visit Britex Fabrics. I really am feeling the need to go there myself. Except I am afraid, very afraid.  I need button or a frog or some type of decidedly exotic closure for a bag.  I barely escaped the urge to take up a new hobby myself the last time I was there buying fringe for a pillow.  I fear I may start buying yarn and try to learn to knit.  They had imported Italian yarn, all feathery and textury. You have been forewarned.

Saturday Still Life

The weekend went by so quickly and peacefully.  Yesterday, I was up in my sewing room at 8 in the morning trying to decide what to do. Then, I heard on the radio it was going to rain so I thought I'd better clean out the rain gutters.  One thing lead to another, trim the tree, cut the grass, rake up leaves, sweep the street gutter, clean the storm drains for our area, then the creative energy of the day was spent.  And then no rain.  Today, it rained pretty much all day so I was free for creative pursuits and sewed at my leisure.  I had the windows open to air out the house and left them open until late afternoon.  The rain seems to have cleaned the dust from the air and streets making it feel almost spring like.  It doesn't seem much like fall and I'm not ready for winter.  Hence, the pastel gerberas.
