OK, what does one do when there is no workplace any longer? This is an especially difficult question when one(me) has an overwhelming need to be productive. So, I create. One thing I do is to smock baby dresses. Smocking? What in the hell is that? It's a very old craft in which tiny embroidery stitches are made over tiny pleats (see photo above-one of my creations). Anyway making these extremely time- consuming dresses gives me such pleasure. And luckily, so many of my former workmates continue to have little girls. I made one "little boy romper" for my baby grandson... but don't think that went over so well with Mom and Dad. I think I'll stick with buying OSH-KOSH for him. To me, it is still so amazing to start with a completely flat and unadorned piece of fabric and end up with something so beautiful. I have spent the last few months bringing my sewing room up-to-par. I've added racks for thread and bobbins, hooks for notions, extra shelves, a super project light and table, and even a bias tape maker (didn't know such a thing existed until last December). I get so immersed in my projects... I sometimes forget to eat and lose track of time.
