I may chat about my books, what I'm writing or reading, or just general thoughts. You may read posts about my cats or just my crazy life in general. Comments are welcome, if anyone wants to interact with me. Maybe we can share war stories, whether it's writing related or just about life in general.

This word can have many meanings, but for this post I’m using sewing and crafting notions.  The sheer magnitude of things today that exists in the fabric and craft stores can be overwhelming to me.  It’s like an explosion before my eyes of so many objects to look at and explore.  Those of you who visit these places will know what I’m talking about. 

I can remember the days when there were a lot fewer choices.  Today I can spend hours in a place like this looking at all the gadgets.  There seems to be a tool for everything.  Unfortunately I don’t have as much time for spending a few hours in places like this anymore because of my work schedule and other things I have to tend too.  But I know where to go if I’m looking for some oddball thing for a project that perhaps is only in my mind.  Many times I can find something that will work for what I’m thinking of.  The problem is I usually find more than I originally went to the store for, so end up coming home with more than I intended to buy in the first place. 

Sewing and crafting is always fun and a nice diversion from everyday life.


  1. So many lovely notions. I like to watch sewing shows where they use things I had no idea existed.

  2. Liz,

    I can go about as crazy in a fabric store as I can in a bookstore. There are tons of notions I never knew existed. It's fun to find new things to try out.
