I know a lot of crafty people. Some of them knit, some are artists, some sew, some do paper crafts and some are just generally crafty. Crafting isn't dead I guess. It's just been dormant in my life for a while. I guess I haven't needed any new curtains lately and all of my girls are grown up and all of my grandchildren are grandsons who really don't wear smocked dresses. I recently had the opportunity to smock a dress for a special little girl. I agreed, hoping I would remember how to smock! It's been a little while. Well, it's just like riding a bike! I also forgot how much I enjoy smocking! I enjoy having something to keep my hands busy at night instead of a wine glass or food!
Today was one of those dreary, rainy, south Texas winter days that starts out 20 degrees warmer than it ends up. I thought it was the perfect day to stay inside and finish putting the dress together. I played CDs fresh out of the 90's and had myself a rockin' day making something! My trusty dog never left my side....she didn't want to go outside either! By the end of the day, I had listened to some of my favorite music and had something very pretty to show for my efforts. Hmmm, maybe I should do more of this because there really is something to be said about spending a day creating!
|A day or two or three.... well spent!|
