  1. That's your garden? But your profile says you live in NYC?

    If I am not sewing, I am reading (in my dreams)
    In real life I'm cooking, cleaning, shopping, working, painting, bathing, wiping butts...

  6. In my dreams, If I am not sewing, I am trying to find a way to bring my new fabric stashes into the house. you see i hide them in my car...in various places....until the coast is clear and i can bring them in. then i have to find room in our room to store the fabric. you see it is very complicated since I store the majority of my fabric in our closet...which my husband uses everyday. so I have to move the old fabric to the front and the new fabric to the back and i cant change things too much on his side or he will say something. so yes, i dream about how to bring my new fabric finds into the house...sad but true.

  7. What a wonderful garden! Oh to have one like that!

    In my dreams, if I am not sewing, I am fighting my way to get to my sewing machine/studio. Nothing can keep me from sewing, not even a dream.

  8. In my dreams, if not sewing, I would be hiking in a national park, I have visited just a few and there are so many. My favorite hike was the one in Glacier National Park that left from the visitor center at the Continental Divide and I think that I would like to go back.

  9. In my dreams if I am not sewing I am cleaning my house because I sure don't do it when I am awake! Sewing is so much more fun that cleaning this old nasty house!

  10. In my dreams, if I'm not sewing... I'm chasing stupid cows! We have a few animals 16 cows and then some chickens...seems my subconcious fear is loose cows. In reality I have had to chase down a few...living on a highway, I have a constant dread of them causing an accident and killing someone. So much for waking refreshed and ready for a new day....I'm stressed and tired out!

  21. Ahhh, when I'm not sewing, I am jet setting around the world with handsome young men at my feet. They are all scampering for my attention!! I'm pampered with the best. As I lounge in my private quarters, grapes are peeled and fed to me by these "hunks". Baubles, expensive fabrics and other treasures are brought to me for my perusal...

    (Yes, it's a fantasy world, isn't it!! If I'm going to do a fairy tale, I'm going to do it right!)

    I'm a follower, have been for some time.

    Have a great day. Nice garden, darling child.

  56. OK, this better not get back to my family because they will think I am trying to escape them and I am not...

    In my dreams, when I am not sewing, I am designing a little 2-room cottage just for me. A great two-sided fireplace separates the kitchen/living/dining room from the bedroom. It is a small place that is easy to keep clean and organized with built-in just about everything. There is a front porch with rockers and a balcony off my bedroom in the back that looks out over a little pond and my abundant bug- and weed-free garden. My cat and dog are best buddies, don't shed, and follow me everywhere. Down the lane, closer to the main road, is a quaint old log cabin, rustic but updated, where my twin sister and I run our cottage business. She is a knitter, and I am a quilter, and we have a joint studio and a showroom where we sell our creations, mostly stuff for tots - sweaters, quilts, hats, booties, etc. Life is great. Somehow all the cleaning gets done without me, and the bills get paid without me, and the groceries get bought without me. It is a dream, after all...

  61. In my dreams if I am not sewing, I am EATING!
    I wish it only happened in my dreams but sadly I eat all day and then dream about it at night.

    I think the only thing that really keeps the serious weight off is sewing because I don't break to eat.
    It's like a fabric diet :)

    thanks for stopping by my blog,
    I've snooped around yours and it's awesome! your work is stunning!

  64. In my dreams, if I am not sewing, I am watching HGTV
    in an air conditioned room
    in a hotel with room service
    and no husband or daughter to interrupt me
    and an unlimited supply of dark chocolate.

    Truly a dream, for I have
    no cable,
    no air conditioning,
    and I am on Weight Watchers, so definitely no chocolate.

    Bummer.

  69. In my dreams I have a lovely studio to work in. Since James is getting married next year I have plans to make the dream come true...I just have to fight Roger for it since he collects toy trains and sees the room as his perfect place for a Lionel train layout. I'm working out and I think I can take him!
    I'll mention this on the blog later.

    I have a number of the latest most innovative machines, a long-arm quilting machine and table.

    All the fabric, wadding and thread I could want. Add to that all the beads, buttons and other wonderful emblishments we need for all our crafting.

    Then all the wool and yarn for knitting and crocheting.

    Then to finish off, all the wonderful x-stitch patterns, linen and thread to live a wonderful life as a "hermit" in my mansion, while he goes to work to pay for it all!!!
