What a fun day I had yesterday. You'll all be jealous.
I spent the day over at the soon-to-be-full-but-already-fabulous Yummy Goods on Cape Cod. Melissa and I spent the afternoon being sewing buddies and it was just what I needed. Sometimes I feel so isolated working alone in my studio. Our house is on a hill and my window looks down over the neighborhood. It can feel a bit like sitting up in my ivory tower.
But not today. The space was perfect (bright, beautiful light, the smell of incense, groovin' tunes, and a gentle late summer breeze) and the company was better.
How yummy indeed.
Melissa is off to tape her TV segment (what a rock star) tomorrow and wanted a little moral support getting all her goods together. Of course I was more than happy to oblige. And guess what that meant? I got to be one of the first people to sew with Sugar Snap! So sweet. (I have to say how hard it was for me resist typing "sew" there and making the obvious pun...)
She also gave me a little of her precious first yardage. Thanx Melissa! (I warned you all you'd be jealous...)
We chatted the time away while managing to get some actual "work" done. Can I just say: I LOVE blogging. If I had know that a whole other world was going to open up to me and I was going to make some cool connections and even a really good friend or two, I would have tried this a lot sooner. It's amazing to hang with someone that I already know a lot about and just feel immediately comfortable. Sadly, so many of you amazing people live in far off places and I'll never see your faces, but I know what I read on your blogs will impact my life.
That's a little weird too, huh?
Can you imagine trying to explain this all to someone in the past (before the internet was invented). It would sound like such a crazy mixed-up world. But that's the way (uh huh, uh huh) we like it.
Melissa has promised I'll get to teach some kind of crafty class in her cozy new studio space. I'm going to pretend you'll all want to fly in from across the country just for that, like when Heather Bailey gives a workshop. But if not, and you just happen to be visiting Cape Cod...you've got to check out the store.
