It is one of those days requiring a Wendy's Biggie Diet Coke light ice, a cheeseburger, Little Debbie's chocolate snack cakes, and a magazine. I feel much better already.
I went to the grocery this afternoon to pick up milk and the chocolate and dared to stroll through the magazines again. Good thing I did, as there is a new Spring Quilts And More. This is quite timely as I just received an e-mail notice from the Anna Maria Horner shop that she has some kitchen linens available, which are darling. Well, check out the magazine cover, bottom corner. Anna Maria is featured in this issue of the magazine, and she has a sweet pincushion pattern for us. Below is a shot of the article's cover photo. Now I'll have to get some of her pretty fabrics.
On Sundays, when I have been to church (though not today, due to exhaustion from the kids' competition this weekend), I am well rested and my mind is clear for just a few short minutes before Sunday Stress sets in (see this link), I feel like I can accomplish anything and take on the world. Right this minute, I want to run downstairs and sew, I want to prime the kitchen cabinets and get ready to paint them, I want to start laying the brick walkways through the front yard - no, actually, I want my husband to start laying the brick walkways while I direct, I want to apply to college again and learn something new, I want to reorganize several rooms, and I want to start painting and decorating my intended new studio office in the scheme of Alicia Paulson (site) Posie Gets Rosy (blog), but which one first? I'm paralyzed with choices right before I have to get down to Monday business. Blink, and it will be the weekend again. Will it always be like this? I hope not, but I don't want to be old when it isn't and I want to use these great ideas now!
More Diet Coke please -- light on the ice -- oh, and another Little Debbie's. Ahhh, thanks.
