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.

CityCraft, an fun local quilt shoppe here in Dallas, is participating in the Etsy Craft Party: One Million Pillowcase Challenge and hosting an "open house" event this Friday, August 27th. All pillowcases will be donated to a local Women's Shelter that provides shelter and security to women and children in need. What an awesome event! While I won't be able to make it to the event, I plan on donating a few pillowcases this weekend! Even if you are not local to Dallas, you can find an Etsy Craft Party near you by clicking here! You can also download the free pillowcase pattern by clicking here!
