needle & thREAD

needle and thREAD

I knew it was only a matter of time. I'm here before you this morning to confess I didn't sew a thing this week. I was gone all weekend and spent the first part of the week recovering my household. The only thing I did in my sewing room was rearrange the furniture.

It's an odd paradox. I've been tired and overwhelmed and in a bit of a funk pretty much all summer. I always feel better when I sew. And yet, I sometimes can't bring myself to get started. Inertia. It's a bad thing.

I've been reading Talking Back to Facebook. I think this book is well worth my time. I'm only about half way through it and I have the Kindle version, so it's tricky to skip around. The book is focused on social media and children and teenagers. So far, I'm nodding right along. I do think he underestimates the effects of social media for the rest of us, though. Or maybe he's going to get to that. Or maybe it's just me who feels those effects...

What about you? Sewing? Reading? A little of both? What's on your summer reading list? Do you have a summer sewing list?  Or are you embroidering? Pulling a needle with thread through lovely fabric to make life more beautiful somehow? Would you share with us just a single photo (or more) and a brief description of what you're up to? Will you tell us about what you're reading, also? Would you talk sewing and books with us? I'd love that so much.
