Late into the night...............or early morning, it is way past midnight and I am still awake. There is something about the stillness of the night that allows my mind to run wild. The silence of the night draws me into a creative trance. Not a distraction in sight or sound, with the exception of the barking neighborhood dogs and my snoring husband and basset hound. Turning the pages of a newly received magazine or relocating a cherished craft book is all it takes for the minutes to turn into hours. Give me a few yards of fabric, a couple of needles with thread and throw in an assortment of buttons and lace; that's what I call contentment. To gather my random thoughts and ideas and quite possibly create something- or nothing at all. This is what I call time well spent.
