Dreary, rainy day – Hooray!

Okay, so I love rainy days.  I always have when I think back on it.  When I was a kid, I’d play in the rain or sit on the front porch with my dad and watch the storm clouds roll over the mountains to our house.  When I was older, I may or may not have spent a good deal of time swimming in flooded creeks with one of my high school friends; we should’ve known better but it’s hard to resist a lot of water and a baseball field that’s been turned to mud.  In college, I fully admit you could find another friend and I splashing in a fountain during a downpour.  If you’re already soaking wet, why not just enjoy it?!

These days, when it rains I happily embrace an excuse to hole up in my crafting room.

I haven’t sewn anything in a while; I just haven’t been able to find my mojo.  Today started off much the same but I ended up completely finishing the Nessie when all I had intended to do was try to match threads to the fleece.  Guess autopilot takes over sometimes.  🙂


I also picked out the fabric for my a Christmas gift.  I know it’s well ahead of time, but projects have a way of getting shoved to the side here, so if I have it in queue, it’ll be done at some point.  You can actually see them in the background of Nessie too.


On a completely different track, we saw an Alton Brown show this weekend and it was AWESOME!  We also had a Worst Movie Ever night with some of my husband’s coworkers.  I was secretly really pleased to see that some baby gifts I had made for one couple last year were being used — always a good feeling to know your hard work is being at least somewhat appreciated and used rather than collecting dust or passed off onto somebody else. 🙂
