Stickers and Stitches


















The rain was cool today. So thankful to have a bit of a break from the humidity. It rained all day. A lovely constant pitter patter against the roof.  Liam slept deeply after a day of play. Books, Balls, Kitchen play while I made cookies. So many new emerging favorite things. Currently he likes taking out the crochet coasters from their holder. It's so surprising - the things that keep his attention at this stage. Stickers were introduced today and I remembered what it was to play. That silly type of play where you laugh from your belly and feel it in your toes. A bit of a book was read while eating and drinking a second cup of coffee during Liam's nap time. A grown up book I might add. One where I can read quietly in my head and does not require the use of a falsetto.  Stitches were put into a bit of patchwork. All of these things. Blessings. Things that I never want to take for granted. The wonderfully everyday happenings. The highlights. My favorite moments. The small things that stack up to be the components of a truly wonderfully complete day. 

How was your day friends?

  1. Hi Karisma, glad you had some nice rain to cool down. Its only morning here, but my day is shaping up to be quite good. Just finished a lovely cup of strong tea, so I'm ready to get into some more housework now, but hopefully I can squeeze in some sewing later today too.. I love your patchwork panel you've been stitching. Such cute fabrics and fresh, happy colours. What are you planning on making it into? Cheers, Kelly

    1. Hi Kelly! Ah... housework. Tuesdays are my housework days and I found myself coming up with excuses in order to be out of the house for it! I hope you were able to get some sewing done! What are you working on? The little patchwork that I have in my basket is hopefully going to be turned into a folded pouch for notecards. I am so bad in sending thank you cards or I'm thinking about you cards or birthday cards... that I'm hoping if I have a cute little pouch for them that is always in my bag... whenever I have a moment, I can work on it. That's the plan anyway. I'm probably going to finish the hand quilting today and hopefully sew it up over the weekend. =) Do you have a blog? I tried to check your profile but there wasn't any information on it. If you are a blogger, I'd love to visit you in your space! =) Have a wonderful day Kelly! And thank you so much for stopping by and sharing a bit of your day with me! Aloha.

    1. Aloha Anya! Welcome and thank you so much for stopping by and for your kind comments! I must admit that rainy days are wonderful - especially when they are cold rain days. Most times they are humid, but that day on this post was a wonderful cool one. =)
