My bags are unpacked! I found out why I had to pay that extra $50 for overweight baggage. Too much stock for my sewing room!
I wonder if I can keep justifying my spending on my sewing "hobby". With my well stocked sewing room I really ought to have a business (but then that wouldn't be any fun, would it?) I find that I bought two new cutting mats, a revolving cutting mat, a thread holder, a ruler holder, three rulers, two roller cutters, scissors, thread, pins, needles, a sewing foot, a spotlight (from IKEA and it clips on to different surfaces!), and fabric, fabric, fabric. I can hardly wait to spend a few hours in the sewing room!
In the meantime, I cleaned and pulled weeds and discovered that our little blueberry bush has become a big blueberry bush! For years I've wanted to be able to pick blueberries and we've bought three or four bushes but they all died out. I guess one lived just from oversight because this spring Tetsu wanted to know where the big bush came from and if he could take it out. When I looked I exclaimed
"Don't touch that! It is actually a blueberry bush!"
I am so amazed to come back from the States and find the bush heavy with big, plump blueberries! Maybe the bush is so close to Choco's kennel that she scared all the birds away. Anyway, I "harvested" yesterday and we ate blueberries with our granola this morning!!! Delicious! Why is it I suddenly feel like a farmer that has grown her own food!
