Call me Georgia

 I haven't been sewing as you can see. I've been driving my sorrow away by doing yard work and house work. Anything to keep my mind off my Daughter"s empty room.

Not really fun pictures of those. But as I was weeding, I thought, how beautiful these leaves would look in a quilt.
 Maybe I'm just channeling Georgia again.
 Leaves are so interesting and they are never flat and dull. I could surround myself in green leaves and feel quite happy.
Today Paradise is having June showers. Not sure what that means, except I'll have to wash my car again!
At least I won't have to water today, one less thing on my list.

Maybe later I'll get to my machine and try to create sometime happy.

Take care, Brandie

The geraniums and hosta leaves are pretty.

Green growing leaves can definitely bring happiness and inspiration. We have had rain all day here also. I am thrilled as it is helping fill our repaired pond. Here's to happiness for you dear...

Ah, I know how you feel, and I wish you lots of happy things to keep that sorrow from getting the best of you. It gets better with time, and magically sewing little pieces of cloth together is very therapeutic. I agree, working in the garden is good for us Mommas. xoxo

I too, know how you feel. I hate not having any children at home anymore but the upside is the house stays a lot tidier. Gardening out in the fresh air is a perfect distraction.
