My friend is an artist
But now I have a little funny story for you. OK, the picture up there is what I look like this morning. I got up early so I could sew a bit on my quilt before the tribe gets up. Yes I am still wearing my house coat, my hair is back in a kerchief and I can't find my hairbrush, so it is still snarled from sleep. But frankly this is kinda what I look like most of the time....well I do tend to get dressed before the kids get up, but there you go. That is not the funny story.
Last week we had our neighbors over for a little BBQ. They are great people. Sharon is my brilliant little artsy friend here in town and I am so thrilled that she lives right across the street from me. We can have art offs whenever we want, right? So we were talking about house hold chores and the demand for a really good vacuum. I have a pretty decent vacuum (for hard wood floors) but it is getting one hell of a work out in this house. The carpet is really cheap and I have as many animals as children living with me, so a good deal of pet hair is sucked up each time I turn it on. Wellsir, I was going on about how much dust and lint are created but sewing all the time. And my husband chimed in that it was actually like a million little circles of fabric flying around since each time the needle stabs down it acts like a hole punch.
Anyway, may you all be blessed with brilliant friends, wonderful creativity and happy, healthy families for 2011.
