The last couple days have been full of coincidences. Have you had days like that? If I think of someone, I get a phone call or email shortly thereafter. If I hum a song it magically plays on the radio or in a soundtrack of a television show. I must be in the metaphysical groove, so to speak. I have been listening to a favorite book on audio this week and I turn on the t.v. Sunday night and Sense and Sensibility is on Masterpiece Classics.
This movie version is terrific and very, very close to the original. I do love the Emma Thompson movie version too. How can you not love Emma? Good thing I don't have to choose and can watch both till I overdose on Austen.
I have been working on a possible new pattern. I have it in mind for our new fabric collection that will show at Spring Market in Pittsburgh. I, of course, don't have that fabric yet - so this prototype is made with American Primer fabric.
Here is a peek at what I have so far......
So.... I am busy sewing along on this project and getting angry at myself for my for my pathetic supply of straight pins. Where did they all go? I have 5 left and 2 are dull. I keep pinning and unpinning for the entire afternoon and I am cursing under my breath when the doorbell rings. A parcel from Moda is here. It's small so it cannot be fabric. Inside is a little gift from Lissa Alexander, thanking me for posting a project on the new Moda Bakeshop website. Here is the gift.
Yes, an Americana tin stuffed with new, SHARP, straight pins. A coincidence???? I think not!
Don't you love the note? "Random Acts of Moda". The universe is trying to tell me something. Here's hoping the universe is showing you random acts of kindness today.
