So today was a day I really needed Fabric Therapy.
And God must have known. (Well of course He did.) But I should have realized that this kinda day would be coming too. After all ... it is April Fool's Day, right?
That compounded by the fact that I woke up to find ALL the Amy Butler prints on sale at my favorite online fabric shop (which I thankfully resisted.) This doesn't happen all that often and these are seriously cool prints. Luckily since I snagged some at a previous sale I was able to stand strong and hold off until I sell some more skirts and use up the stash on hand. (If you like Amy Butler and want to know where I'm talking about send me a note and I'll let you know the details of the sale.)
But it's been a long, long winter of "things not mentioned" ... particularly because it has to deal with near and dear family and not really me (phew!) ... and out of respect for them I feel I should keep things private and really ... this is a blog and it really needs to be uplifting not the place to air dirty laundry.
But oh the hurt. Sometimes I wanna scream and have someone make it all right.
Yes, thankfully it is not me and our immediate family riding the waves of a dissolving marriage, but seeing a sibling go through it is still horrible. It's like a death that is very drawn out and painful.
SO, today when there was to be a hearing that was postponed due to unpreparedness of certain parties ... a silver lining appeared for me (the sister bystander person) in a little quilting shop in the small little cupcake town near where I grew up. It was an absolutely adorable sweet print ...
What a wonderful blessing for the day!

I cannot wait to make a dress or a project out of it! (Let me know if you have any skirt needs for flowers and birdies.)
