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.

Whew! After a very long weekend (long for every reason under the sun!), I am finally finished with the inventory I plan on taking to the Maple Leaf Festival this upcoming weekend and my sewing room is officially closed. I will say it again...whew!

On a positive note, I made two fun new projects over the weekend which will definitely be added to my "handmade for the holiday gifts to give" list this year! I'll share both later in the week because right now I just put my little man to bed, poured a glass of wine, and have sat down to watch Saturday Night Live (well, not so live now since it is on the DVR) with my hubby. Jane Lynch from Glee hosted and I CAN.NOT. WAIT to watch! Does anyone besides us watch SNL anymore?

Happy Sunday (night)!


  1. I forgot to DVR Jane Lynch on SNL, darn it! You will have to show us some pictures of everything you made! I bet you are excited.


  2. J. Lynch...she's the chick from 40 Year Old Virgin, right?

    If I happen to be up watching TV, I will watch SNL, but have never been a watcher of the show and tend to forget about it. But that's not saying much since I don't catch much of anything on TV now adays. "The Herd" does not allow for much breathing room during the evenings.

    I can't wait to see your stuff at MLF! Safe traveling!
