seams

 sometimes it doesn't take a lot to make me happy

the 2 strips sewn together 'Jude-style'  so they fold flat effortlessly

some days that's all i need

ah lovely seaming, must be a week for it, yesterday I cut the frayed collars off our indoor gardening work shirts, turned them over and stitched them back on by overcasting and then reinforcing the edge with Jude;s invisible baste, we will look a bit more respectable, hehe!

Come together :)

Julie S said...

that is the proof that you made the right decisions about your job...contentment. And how is your new world going?

"some days that's all I need"
I know what you mean...

I also took some Jude inspiration from her recent Flower Power post.
I dyed two squares of fabric using guitar picks for the resist. One fabric an
old denim and the other an old aqua bed sheet. Somewhat pretty for a first attempt.
During the week I embellished the flowers a bit. Happiness from small simple flower squares.
And September here in New England is glorious.

Grace, a sigh of relief

the exact right match, Nancy

I guess it must be so Julie, it hasn't quite sunk in as I haven't started with the new job just yet; still 2 more weeks to go before 'my' customer service dept. heads south and we split up; until then I'll still be working there for a couple more days; it feels completely different, as if I have been released (I know it's me holding self back, but boy oh boy it is hard putting this into practice each and every day: live life on my own terms)

we have to make the happy moments happen ourselves, right Melanie


thank you Jude (for everything)

Thank goodness for life's simple pleasures! It is often food for me -- a well balanced, tasty meal that was almost effortless to put together. But cloth does it too -- with a regularity that most would likely find a little weird. But not you, I take it.

A nice seam is so satisfying! It feels good in the hands.

Saskia van Herwaarden said...

what would we do without them Dee? noticing them is where it all starts, for me at least, and embracing just that 'in the moment=ness' of whatever simple, small pleasure it is....

they DO feel good Dana

Simple is often the best path to chose. Too often, we humans make life more complicated by looking beyond "simple."

don't we just Sue!
