Sew, was it just a dream?

At nightfall I closed my eyes.
And when I awoke, there I was: in a beautiful place in the country.

Was it a dream?
How else does one explain this?

I don't know what dreaming about storks means ...
... but the rest of the message was clear.

Sew all day and into the night.

And enjoy the wonderful company: the conversation and laughter. Not to mention the food (oh, the food!).

Yesterday as I looked through my bag, some sewing and sketches confirmed that I must have lived the dream. No matter how distant it already seemed.

And blimey ... that stork in the leg warmers and scarf must have been real.

  1. What a fabulous weekend.
    Must. Get. There. Soon!!!!

  2. Well I know it was Ms Myrtle and Eunice what made the legwarmers, but who added the scarf?

    It does sound like a fabulous place (in both senses of the word!) everyone who blogs about it says it's heavenly. Well done you for getting away for a break.


  3. Ahhhh, every craft bloggers home away from home x

  4. Ahhhh the serenity... hope I can make it properly next time!

  5. Oh, how wonderful! You've given me the idea - one day I'll have a proper sewing room, and it will have embroidery hoops on the wall with my favorite fabrics. :)

  6. Hmmmm, suggesting that as the scarf is purple we look to Stompergirl.

    One day I'll get there, one day.

  7. Once upon a time, in a land far, far away....

  8. Looks like you had a lovely weekend. What an idealic setting.
