My sewing machine has maintained a constant "whir" of late.  You know the sound the machine makes as it sews yards and yards of ruffled lace unto fabric.    

Oh dear family, it is not my fault that there might be a "speck" of dirt on the floor, or "a load" of laundry that is not clean. Ruffles combined with sewing is very hypnotic. It is a trance-like experience of which, I'm sure, I have no control. I might just need a doctor. 
 
Until I am cured, sewing shall continue to hold my attention. Honestly, I don't mind at all.   

Blessings to all of you!

Ele- I understand that addiction all too well. Soon, soon...my next days off from work...I will be best friends with my machine once again. I have missed her "voice" and my fingers have missed her "feel"...and the purr that she emits when I sit in front of her. She is, by far, my favorite non-living "pet". I can't wait to see what you have been creating! Hugs- Diana

Sometimes we just need to create and forget about the house and the "outside" (outside of the craftroom) world! YOur frothy bags look wonderful, how about a full picture!

Awe...sounds very similar to me with using clay and a paint brush...not much else gets done!

Hope you are well! Missing you!
