Day 22

Day 22

Today I was in my happy place.  Besides photography, designing and sewing brings me utter joy.

I grew up with the cadence of a Singer sewing machine as the background music of most of my days.  My Mom was an amazing seamstress. I spent many hours looking over her shoulder, absorbing her knowledge and most likely driving her nuts with an ongoing dialogue.  When I sew now, I can almost feel her hands guiding mine as I work.  I can sense her laughing at me, as my kids stand and deliver and ongoing, one-sided conversation.

I will be spending many hours in my sewing room this spring designing and sewing costumes for our spring ballet. I hope I have not bitten off more than I can chew... but I am looking forward to the challenge.
