Happiness Is...And Other Random Thoughts

It really is the simplest things that can make me happy. Now for some of you, you may not relate to what I am about to express and others I know you will completely get this. I have been in one of my bohemian moods and wanted to make a cute funky handbag and lo and behold if I didn't have matching thread and the bobbin with the thread already wound. Trust me, this is a big deal. O.K. maybe not that big of a deal but it sure made me ever so slightly giddy. Think of it this way. You know when you want to bake something ooey and gooey and you know just what it is you want and lo and behold you have all of the ingredients in your cupboard. Same thing but just fewer calories :)
I have had this fabric for at least 3 years.

I am being such a goof ball tonight. I think all of the overtime that I am doing is getting to me.

Hugs and much love my friends, Sue

P.S. This girlie is going night, night.


  1. Okay, I'm dying to see what you make with that fabric. And...I know just what you mean. Maybe it's because I am up way past my bedtime.

  2. haahhhaaa...cute post. Hope you get your bag made..this fabric is perfect.
    xo bj

  3. Thanks for stopping by. I would take no small pleasure in having both thread and bobbin ready to go. I get excited when I can find stamps and a return address label. The little joys in life are joys.

  4. Love your fabric my friend. My hubby winds all my bobbins because I HATE BOBBIN WINDING! Isn't that dumb? It's oooo dumb!

    Can't wait to see what you are going to make!


  5. I completely understand! I can be going along great and run out of bobbin thread or worse run out of the color. Wrecks your whole mood.

  6. I love the fabric and that hobby is way less calories then cooking - where is the purse?


  7. Hi, Sue...just coming by to say how much so many of us bloggers have in our memories as well as other parts of our lives. Age doesn't seem to make a remember things about your mom and you are years younger than me..I am older now than my mom was when she died and she's been gone over 20 years. I have spent most of this day, crying, because I still miss her so. I go months without getting LONELY for her..I miss her and think about her but, I'm ok. Then, some days, just a tiny memory..a smell..a word, can just send me over the edge. I spend awhile crying and being sorry for myself..and then,.....I am ok. :)
    Just a normal thing, I think, for someone that loved her mom.:)
    xoxo bj

  8. Been looking for you...hope all is well.

  9. Cute and wonderful post! I can't wait to see just how the thread and fabric match up! I was expecting it on your post . . . was I expecting too much? :) Haven't been by in a while - I need to come by more often!!!! (I haven't been out in blog land much at all lately!) Take care! Love, Jenn

  10. Good heavens! You can make a purse...just like that? I ..that???
    I never ever cease to be amazed!

  11. You silly silly girl...go get in that warm bed, snuggle down and go to sleep.:)) I am right behind you.

    Love that green fabric....

  12. Christmas blessings to you!!! May your New Year be the best ever!

    Love to you~
