Sewing is a lot like life...sure, there are patterns for just about everything, but in order to love what you do, or love what you make, you have to change the pattern to make it your own regardless if the change is a fraction of an inch or the length of a yard. And more often that not, those choices you make to change the pattern do not work out exactly the way you hope. It can be frustrating and challenging, and sometimes you have have to rip it all apart at the seams and start completely over. Which requires patience. A lot of patience. But in doing so, you create something that is far more rewarding, and far more beautiful, then what you started with.

Another glance at happiness

Just in case my post a few weeks ago
wasn't exactly your picture of happiness,
how about this one?
3 puppy dogs and 1 sweet little boy...


  1. Thanks for stopping by to visit my blog last week. Sorry I am just getting back to you. Wish our heat here in Georgia would break. If cabling is out of the question right now, you might try the link to the Maine Morning Mitts on my sidebar--easy knit and pearl straight through. I LOVE my pair of these! Following you.

  2. Did you get a new dog??? You just had two...right?
