First thank you for the outpouring of messages on the fabric post...it was emotionally stirring...and please understand that as a menopausal woman...too much kindness can cause me to melt into a puddle!
Seriously though, there were a few comments that I want to acknowledge...
SewJune ~ out of all the comments written...and there were quite a few...yours touched me the most! There are sooooo many people just like you right now in America...but the hope and the ability to withstand came through in your words! Thank you for sharing your thoughts with me and I will be true to them!
Claudine ~ I love your honesty. It is refreshing. Please feel free to continue to share your thoughts here because I know that they are shared with a generousity of spirit without a shred of ill will.
Julie Ann ~ Your comment brought a smile to my face as I remembered some of our shopping trips to Jomars with Lisa, Dawn, Colleen & you and I. Do you remember the time that Dawn kept sneaking her bags down to her car whilst the rest of us looked like little fabric piggies trying to buy everything in the store?! Good times! Times that make me miss you all the more now that you are living all the way over there on the West Coast!
Rose ~ I am going to extend to you the same offer that I made Lindsey T. You can come over anytime you want...okay I'm gonna need a little notice first *LOL*...and rummage through my fabric closet. You can even take a piece or two home with you! *smile*
Barb ~ I would hate to be the reason you spent money on that evil DirectTV...so don't worry you can get your vicarious thrills through me! *LOL*
Neighborhood Gal ~ I stand corrected! However, I really do believe that sewing is an art or I wouldn't forever be comparing the process to painting!
MaryBeth ~ there's absolutely no reason to lose sleep over a blog post of mine! But and there's always one of those with me...when someone whom I truly respect writes something deep and thoughtful, I do tend to stop and take stock of the situation. Obviously there are some pearls of wisdom to be gleaned and I need to grasp hold of them!
Again thank you everyone who commented on the posts with such wonderful words of affirmation!
Can I have Michelle Obama's closet for just one week! I just want to take a few hundred pictures of the good stuff, get a good look at the interior construction, feel of the fabric in the garments...and touch and play with the combinations!

It's been a loooooonnng time since I've coveted someone else's lifestyle but right now I'm drooling, simply drooling over the awesomeness of the clothing she has worn on this European trip as well as the historicalness (is that a word?) of it! Do you think she and the President go back to their hotel room every night and pinch themselves? C'mon being hugged by the Queen of England...visiting the synagogues and graveyards in Prague...visiting Germany with the Chancellor...cause I'm in awe of how momentous this is and that it happened in MY lifetime!
It gives me such HOPE for my grandchildren's generation...
Since Good Friday is a stock market holiday and my job is closed...Carolyn no has to worky! Yippee! I have plans on finishing up some pieces this weekend...The "Dreaming of Spring" dress is definitely included in those plans. I am also having Easter Dinner at my house this year...how the h*ll did that happen? So my three day weekend will be cut a little short since I will have to clean as well as cook...*sigh*
As always...more later!
