Good morning! I think I'll share some December sewing with you. Just before Christmas, Cari and I made drapes for my sewing space. I know, all the cool chicks call it a "studio," but in our house, studios have long been places where Daddy goes to make TV shows or girls go to dance. So, it's the "sewing room" or my "sewing space."
These drapes were the last to be hung. Cari hasn't even seen them finished! And they're my favorites. Mike's favorites, too, I think. The room is so pretty and inviting. I made some pillows to match for a chair where kids plop while I work (I write in my sewing space, too, just this little side hobby, the writing). I love to be in there. Next week, I'm going to give you a tour of the shelves. I think I need to write a post detailing my intentions for all that fabric and yarn over the next year. Then, you can hold me to it!
There's no picture here of my chair, where I sit to sew. Mary Beth and I have some plans for that chair. Perhaps you'll see it here in the next few days.
No picture of my book, either. In the past couple days, two people have independently recommended Brene Brown to me. So I've downloaded the audible versions of The Gifts of Imperfection: Let Go of Who You Think You're Supposed to Be and Embrace Who You Are and Daring Greatly: How the Courage to Be Vulnerable Transforms the Way We Live, Love, Parent, and Lead.
What are you sewing and reading this week? I really do want to hear all about it!
