A little too AMBITIOUS!!!!

Hello everyone,
My name is Naomie and I am a professional stalker, and I need help. I have never known myself to be a crazed, hungry, overbearing individual until now. I have turned into a psycho stalker trying to get this whole sewing group thing together. What kind of person out of the blue start talking to random strangers in order to get inspiration to sew. Have I finally lost it? I mean I will walk around and try to analyze a person while looking at fabric...trying to see if this person would like to be committed into a sewing cult. I said it CULT, I think I am aiming to start a new religion with this whole thing. Don't be too surprised if you see me with scrap wood in my backyard trying to build a chapel. Where the holy sewing machine will have it's own alter. I have gone off the deep end people....WATCH OUT!!!! Sewer gone crazy!!!!!

Making your own iron board.

Last night I saw this awesome video on how to make a simple ironing board all it required was a staple gun, some polyester batting, more batting, a sheet of muslin and BOOM! Your own portable ironing board. I think it's on youtube, but don't quote me on it.
I was so surprised that making your own ironing board could be soooo easy, actually I didn't think it was possible. I am getting the creative itch, that's always good news.
How many of you out there made your own?

Do you believe in signs? (not sewing related)

Hey everyone,
I have to start by being honest with you, today isn't such a good day not because it wasn't a beautiful day, because it was. But my cat died last night, she got hit by a car and I was just so pissed. Believe in me this isn't the first pet we have lost as a matter of fact it could be the 9th or 10th animal we lost. I don't know what is exactly wrong with my house or the people in my area but it seems that my family specifically isn't allowed to have/or own any animal without a tragic ending. Now could this be because we are bad owners? or not meant to have animals?
Sometimes I wonder allot about my life...I know for a fact that I am not considered to be in a very bad scenario (because it could always get from bad too worse) but nothing good seems to happen. I sometimes wonder if it is because of my attitude/outlook on life that makes things seem so gloomy or is it because I live a life that is just filled with sorrow that inevitably made me see things in a negative light.
It's funny though because the other night I had a dream that I was going to have to let someone go. I literally was standing on a cliff holding a lifeless body and forced to make a decision on either letting myself linger in sorrow or let the body drop. When I woke up I cried allot because of all the emotions I felt. I couldn't understand why I had to make such a horrible decision but in the end I had to let go and turn away. Then last night I had to pick up my cat's lifeless body and let her go. Some how I wasn't so distraught as my neighbor who was just beside herself (she is a real cat lover). I think in a way God was preparing me for a huge loss. (I lied I did cry allot but in my room with my 4 month old nephew who was sleeping.)
He (G0d) allowed me too feel all these things before I had to deal with the reality of my lost. I loved my cat MYA. She was the sweetest cat I ever owned, but unfortunately she ended up with us. Now she is gone.
So am I to believe that my dream was a sign? Or is there such a thing? And if the dream was about lost then should I prepare for more?

Would it be weird if I ....

Was too actually try to find sewing friends in my neck of the woods...or is that a little juvenile. I mean I have seen many adds online on sites (that are not too reputable) asking for all kinds of "friends" but am I retarded if I were to put an add trying to make friends with similar interest...more importantly a strong interest in sewing.
Is that weird or what?
I think it would be more fun having someone (doing it with) ...wait hold on that didn't sound right....someone to participate in these friendly, clean activity would be another motivation for me to keep sewing on a regular basis. Please feel free to correct me if I am wrong.

My new therapy...and does space for sewing make a difference.

Since, It's been awhile since I have even looked at the muslin fit of my shirt....I figure why not use the blog for something just as useful. Life keeps happening so why not use this blog as my ranting space and occasionally talk about sewing.

The real reason I don't necessary keep up with my sewing is because I don't have space. I don't have a place I can walk into and just sew everything. My sewing tools are scattered across my room and it's a little distracting. Gathering things then put my stuff on an available table or space is sometimes a little much for me.

That's when it came to me...could having a sewing space make a difference in my progress? I think it will but first things first I need to move.
