It IS raining!!

I never thought I'd be so happy to say "It's raining!" but after this LONG drought, I AM! We've had too long a time of Hawai'i's summer weather, and it finally started raining on this side of the Big Island 2 days ago. I had almost forgotten what it felt like to wake up in the CHILLY morning...ran out to check the thermometer this morning & it read 64 degrees! It has been a long time, alright! Time to get out my down comforter! Yay! And now my garden can get back to life!
Otherwise, I've been thrilled to be helping my "sister" go thru her mom's storage. Her mom is a retired professional seamstress,(specializing in wedding gowns~ooooh!) so she has many years of accumulated fabric & trims! Do I feel like a kid in a candy store? OF COURSE! Oodles & oodles of silks, satins & velvets to make a bunch of Christmas stockings for my grandchildren! And loads of old linens & cottons for my hobo bags for more Christmas gifts! I only wish I had a camera again to show y'all!
I've also been keeping busy doing needlework on all my white pillowcases for my bedroom once I'm finally done re-decorating! I'm making white lace-trimmed curtains for the room too! You know, the kind that will blow so gently in the breeze! Ooooh! All accents in my room will be the Copenhagen-ish blue! Can't wait!
I have been visiting all of your blogs lately & am so happy to see all of the busy-ness y'all have been up to! Please keep our friend, Teresa & her family in prayer...Her husband, Jack was found collapsed on the floor of his hotel room & is now in ICU in the hospital.
~Blessings to you all~

I'd love to be browsing those lace and trims with you - what fun! Sounds like a big project you're working on in your bedroom, but the work will be worth it all, I'm sure!

What fun to go through the fabrics with your friend - recently a friend of mine gave me some vintage lace from her mother-in-law. It was so beautiful! blessings, marlene
