I cannot resist a great sale… can you?

OH! JOY! THREE FOR ONE SALE!

The fabric store had a huge one day sale on threads, the big bobbins were three for the price of one. Okay, you understand that this kind of sale makes a sewist day, right?!

I had about 36 bobbins of threads in my carry-on basket (but who is counting?) and I was physically refraining myself from jumping up and down out of happiness when the lady in line after me said

“Uh! are you really sewing THAT much?!”………………………………………………..

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

………………………………………………………………………………………………………………………

Every person waiting in line stopped talking and stood still as I immediately  started talking to myself.

(Breath in….breath out Cardinal… only a few people can understand the absolute visceral need one has to finish their fabric edges with a thread color perfectly matching their garment). I turned around toward the lady while I was skillfully emptying my basket of threads on the cash counter, and with a forced smile, fake confidence and a deep voice I answered ” Yes ma’am! I surely do”.  I paid and walked out of the fabric store standing tall.

The moral of the story; Please be kind to the crazy sewist you encounter. I know that we are a little frazzled and kooky at times, but rest assure, we live in our own bubble world and we mean no harm to people who live outside of our sewing studio.

Peace  :   )
