Okay, I haven't done an SPT in entirely too long. So, here it is. I was sitting at my sewing table, looking out the window at the Potomac River. Yes, I have an amazing view from my studio, and I am grateful for it. Today, I was sitting at my sewing table, looking at the river, and thinking about what a day it had been.
I was woken by Princess Fancypants (G) at 5:30am. I made her get in the bed with me, in hopes that she would go back to sleep. Fat chance. She wiggled and squirmed and touched my face and snuggled and WHATEVER for another hour until my alarm went off. I woke up grouchy. Then, the morning kind of went downhill from there. I was having house maintenance issues, uncooperative children, and just general chaos. I was almost in tears several times, and definately very stressed. The situation with the girls got better throughout the day, but I was still dealing with house maintenance stress, and the weather was cold and dreary.
I bet you are wondering when I am going to get to the SPT part, right? Well, hang on. Back to the studio. I was sitting and looking out at the river when I spotted a rainbow. A rainbow! Just what I needed to remind me that I may have had a tough day, but I have a lot of blessings and the rainbow signifies hope for a better tomorrow. I grabbed my camera and my coat and went outside to see if I could photograph it. As I was walking outside to take the picture, I realized it was Tuesday, and by George, I am actually a she who is photographing on Tuesday. So, I decided to come back inside and pop over to Lelly's blog to see if, by chance, my photograph fit into the them for today's SPT. No such luck. But, I am sharing my picture anyway! :)
Can you see the rainbow just above that house? I'm sorry that you can't see the river from this angle. I'll show the river another time!

Now, back to the ACTUAL SPT for today...

How did you come up with the name of your blog?

Well, that's an easy one. My name is Missy. I have an addiction. To fabric.

Okay, seriously, I love to create with fabric. I sew almost every day. I own so much fabric, I am now part-owner of a fabric website (IWANTFABRIC.com). I design and create children's clothing (Sweet Funky Vintage) to sell, so I am buying, designing with, sewing, or talking about fabric every day! I just love fabric. I knew my blog would be about my family, my life, and my business. So, calling my blog "fabric of my life" just made sense to me.

Here is a picture of part of my fabric stash a couple of months ago. I was too busy taking pictures of rainbows today to take a new picture!
