We made it home in time for our neighborhood Fourth of July parade. What a perfect home coming. Family, community, barbecue and a little boutique sewing. Girl missed her sewing machine! You'll see just how much in the coming days. I've been a sewing maniac since I've been back.
All personal sewing. I am still on sabbatical. It was so necessary. I've taken breaks before - like 10 hour breaks. Maybe two day breaks. Once I think I may have taken off for a whole week - and I always ended up right back where I started... oversold, overworked and an under-nourished soul.
I love the saying "everything happens for a reason". I don't believe the affirmative that there is a reason first and then something happens second to support that reason. I do believe that any negative energy behind everything that happens in life can influence positive energy towards something else... and thus, everything that happens can be associated with what another might see as an afore-known reason. Whew... windy much? Anyway...
This was a forced sabbatical. But it has been an amazing, much needed, nourishing time for me and hopefully for my family too.

I took the color quiz at spacefem.com and this is what I got. I wish I'd saved my answers before I continued on. I don't want to take it again and see if I pick the same things because this is too perfect to jinx.
Your dominant hues are red and blue. You're confident and like showing people new ideas. You play well with others and can be very influential if you want to be.
Your saturation level is lower than average - You don't stress out over things and don't understand people who do. Finishing projects may sometimes be a challenge, but you schedule time as you see fit and the important things all happen in the end, even if not everyone sees your grand master plan.
Your outlook on life is bright. You see good things in situations where others may not be able to, and it frustrates you to see them get down on everything.
