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.

A Sneak Peek !

Here is a little sneak peek at my items I will be taking to the
Maple Leaf Festival this weekend! I will be sure to take a lot of pics of our booth and the weekend in general....I can't wait!

Birdie Slings

Crayon Rolls
(thanks to Z for lining them all up for his momma)

A basket full of Coffee Cozies

Cute hand towels I decided to take along since I
am sure I will make a ton more between
now and the holidays.

I will also be taking a few Sling Bags, Frenchy Bags and Japanese Knot Bags.
Any last minute tips or advice?
