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.

Strut! Strut! Strut!


Strut. Strut. Strut.

I have to admit it, this is one of my faves. Of all time.


  1. Very cute!! I love the colors you used for the bag! I am visiting from Sassy Sites. Come on by and say HI! I love your blog! So many great ideas! I'm a new follower... :)

  2. Thank you for the nice compliments!! and I'm glad I found your site. :) I noticed in your pillowcase comment that you are in Dallas. My sister lives in Frisco, and of course I think all the houses look the same there, the reflection in your window looks like her area. What a great place! We'd love to move down that way. :) Have a great day! :)
