Yesterday started out sunny and I had my plan. Somehow, I don’t know how it was possible, I had completely forgotten about a fabric store I had been meaning to visit. I jumped on my trusty steed (the two-wheeled variety), loaded up my basket and ventured off. Which is when the clouds started to roll in. It was overcast, but I was sure I could make it there and back.
The clouds were definitely getting darker and there was no mistaking their intent. After quickly browsing and chatting in the fabric shop, I headed home with one more stop to make.
There were two of us bike-ladies in the pharmacy. Both with our baskets of treasures. Her’s were of the vegetable variety, mine cloth…She said she hoped we would make it home before the rain, I agreed, knowing I needed only a few more minutes until I was home.
Just in time. Literally walked in the door and the rain started to fall. My shoes were put away, my purchases unpacked and a simple lunch made. Rain, is the perfect excuse to hibernate in the sewing room.
There was a bento bag project I had been wanting to try, when I saw the colours of fat the quarters, I knew this was the material for it. The early afternoon was spent downstairs. The sun came out and I came up, with a bento bag and a matching zippered pouch.
It is nice to have a big project which will keep you busy for a time. But there are times when you want to sit down with the raw materials and stand up with a finished item. Plus it is a good excuse to procrastinate on the larger project. Just in case you were looking for one….
