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.

Aren't they lovely?

The possibilities are endless.
I picked these lovely yards up this evening at the etsy shop SewLoveFabrics .
If you haven't shopped etsy before, you are missing out on handmade goodness.
Shop it today.
As in right now.
And it is Friday! And I am partying it up over at Sassy Sites! Join me!



  1. These fabrics are "sew" pretty! I have to stay away from your blog 'cause I want want want! I've been meaning to write to you to thank you for the prompt service of making and sending the purses out to me in Canada (remember me?) So thank you! They are terrific. I gave one to my daughter (the black and white purse with the pink top part) and she toted it all over Orlando, Florida!

  2. Did Sandra find your blog through me?? I know she's a reader/commenter over in my neck of the woods. How exciting! :)
