I have say I have not been productive in the sewing studio...I've been thinking about sewing...does that count? I have been feeling very emotional and my life has been topsy turvy for several months. I have fought many demons and am looking forward to peace and happiness. I had a very sad day at work yesterday and it put my personal angst into perspective. We can loose our precious someone in a moment. I don't say enough on my blog about my best friend Steve...he does not tell me about all his risks at work because I'd be so anxious that I'd be in the loony bin. This photo shows how brave he is! he is so kind! he has helped me through rough times and stood by my side. I love this man so much! he is extraordinary!

I have to say the past few weeks have been a whirlwind of activity. Lauren and I traveled to California for a dance competition and along the way...we met with Mimi and her gorgeous family! I am amazed by her bubbling energy, sweetness and her talent. She is pretty in her blog photos but in person she is BEAUTIFUL! inside and out! I felt like I'd known her forever. Lauren instantly loved her family and children and the girls were giggling and dancing. Randy is a brilliant actor who exudes manliness, confidence and is kind and gentle at the same time. We only had a wee bit of time to spend with them which was not nearly enough for us. I could have rolled out a sleeping bag and camped in Mimi's sewing studio. Her fashion drawings are spectacular! God wanted me to meet Mimi...isn't it interesting how we meet people along life's path and they touch our lives in such a positive way. I received news while there that my Aunt was dying and my mom was on her way to Missouri to be with her only sister. Randy did something kind for my mom...(it's a secret sorry) and made her day! I think this little gift he gave her has put a smile on her face throughout the past few weeks and made her lighter on her feet. Visit Mimi's blog and say hello!

Touched by an Angel

A couple of weeks ago I was having a rotten day and feeling very sorry for myself. I was surfing the blogs and Teresa Franco was writing about evacuating from her home in San Diego. Well, a package arrived on my porch that day and guess who it was from? Teresa! she made me the most beautiful cozy blanket and slippers. Teresa is back home and safe thank goodness. When I opened the package I cried. I have made the most amazing and kind blogger friends! Teresa was having a bad day I'm sure while leaving her home and she was making my day at the same time. I love you Teresa! Visit her blog...she is an amazing artist! Here is a photo of Lauren reading a script cuddling with the blanket. (she is more photogenic than me)
