And you're feeling sad
I want you to always remember
Yes, there's a place in the sun"
We had a break in the gray days over the weekend…and where was I?
moody and dark. On the verge of tears. And why? I have no idea. We spent Saturday thrifting, painting and then had dinner with friends and a night a Comedy Sportz. Lots of laughs, good times. Yet, Sunday I was a poop.
JR tried his best to be supportive and a somewhat typical man problem-solver.
“is it something I did?”
“is it something I didn’t do?”
“what do you need?”
“well, come over here and cry. If you need to soak my shirt, go ahead and cry.”
“do you want to go someplace?”
“what would make you happy?”
Bless him. He’s had the benefit of two wives and three daughters to gain this kind of wisdom. The truth is, I couldn’t explain my mood.
“ you know, honey, you could be hormonal.”
Double bless him. Before I kill him.
“ you are pretty upbeat all the time so if you are having an off day, it’s okay, and you don’t even have to have a reason.”
I love this man.
Did I dare confess that I think part of my mood was that I didn’t get to sew this weekend? And my serger is sick? One project after being fixed because I ran over a pin last week?
I cut out a dress. Yes, another dress made from a bed sheet. Monday night I sewed it the old fashioned way with no serger. And I am wearing it today. And it feels like sunshine.
So, before you get tired of my vintage bed sheet dresses, I’d like to offer you a vintage bed sheet of your own so you can make a dress. That would make me happy.
Leave me a comment, and by Friday night, I’ll draw a name and send you a special sunny floral bed sheet from my collection. And a pattern to go with it!
