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.

So I just happened to breeze by SewLoveFabrics on Etsy again today....you know....just to see what was going on...not to buy anything of course....and I came upon this fun "surprise" listing for 8 fat quarters....the "surprise" being you do not know which 8 fat quarters you are getting until they arrive! Now, normally I wouldn't be into this, but a few weeks ago I purchased 6 lovely yards from this store and I am super excited to see what arrives for me next week! I even have the PERFECT new project for them!
I made good progress on my Amy Butler Birdie Sling tonight, so I should have her finished tomorrow and ready to show off next week!
Have a great weekend!
