We were all asleep, buried deep in the back of a shelf, nestled snugly in the bottom of a basket. Forgotten for so long, that any hope of ever seeing daylight no longer even entered our thoughts. We held no malice towards Miss Lori, for we understood that even though she’d forgotten about us at the moment, that one day, she’d remember and we’d all share in the glorious adventures of her needlework. Just between you and I, Denim Light had become a little…shall we say abrasive about the entire situation. Every time we heard footsteps in the sewing room Denim Light would pause what ever he was doing and then once the footsteps went away, he’d let out the biggest snort that turned into a huff…Quiet Fall called it a hissy fit, but what ever it was, I really felt sorry for DL. I knew his frustrations were only because he really wanted to be out there, ply deep in the needlework adventures of Miss Lori. We wanted that, of course.
So when the day arrived that Miss Lori discovered us again…oh the joy that we all felt was beyond restraining. Why even Nostalgic Rose, who is normally rather sedate, threw herself over the top of the basket and rolled across Miss Lori’s slipper. Nostalgic Rose’s thread tail waving behind her in the breeze, it was quit a sight to see I must admit.
Denim Light huffed and yelled out, “Show off!”
Miss Lori picked up Nostalgic Rose, and that made her giggle but she quickly stopped when she realized Miss Lori might hear her. You know, we are not suppose to let “them” know that we are…what was the word they used “aware”.
I had to smile, because I shared Nostalgic Rose’s feeling of joy….we all did, of course. I quickly threw my thread tail over my mouth so not to giggle with glee at the sight of it all.
Oh and let me tell you, when the time arrived to be put to work…we all felt so useful and…yes, I will admit it, right here and now…we felt loved. When you are able to do what you were created to do, you always feel love. That is what Miss Lori feels when she creates, she was made to create by her Creator, and that is why she gets so much joy from it.
Denim Light could not seem to control himself once he got his chance to be used, so he began to roll all over the place…Miss Lori fixed his little “tail”, she put him in a jar. At first he was perturbed by this, but then he quickly forgot and just enjoyed being used.
Word in the sewing room is that Miss Lori has plans to buy “bucketfuls” more of us….and she’s even gonna be part of the Designer program. Isn’t that just awesome! We all love her designs and now we will all get to be apart of them, too.
I can’t give away the super cool design we are apart of, but I will tell you, it won’t disappoint you. In fact, if you want to head on out and buy your own collection of Valdani threads…then you can join in on the fun, too.
Wishing you all a most creative day.
