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.

I cannot even begin to tell you how envious I am of quilters....I love, love, LOVE quilts! I love the design of them, I love that time that goes into them, I love the story that is behind each one that is made. I love them. And if you haven't been over to Amy's Blogger's Quilt Festival yet, you really have to. Have to. As in, go right now. The quilts are amazing. Stunning. Beautiful.
I will be spending my entire Saturday night leaving comments on all of them. Now, are you the one envious of how I spend my weekend nights? :)
