A Lonely Sight

This is a sad, sad story.


It features this sewing machine which hasn't been used in simply months. It's been so long, in fact, that our cat Gracie has taken to having her afternoon nap in this chair.


Sharon P., the owner of this machine, has been otherwise occupied these last 3 or so months. Her services as Grandma and babysitter have taken priority in her life at present, and thus, the sewing machine sits silent.


Here's Sharon's project tub. Remember the Roman Holiday fabrics and the Carrie Nelson pattern called Three Coins? It's sitting there by the sewing machine, ready for action when Sharon is available.

A lonely machine is a sad, sad sight, true, but a happy grandbaby in a nurturing environment is far more pressing than a silent sewing machine. We can wait with our projects; we can't put our family on hold. Little Flynn is growing like crazy and is loving having his big brother Rye home for summer break. Who would want to miss that??

So, I guess this isn't such a sad story after all. Actually, it's rather refreshing, if  you think about it. Sharon is devoted to those boys, and no doubt they are thriving in her care.


Don't worry, Sharon! Gracie will keep your seat warm!

Happy Quilting, Friends!
