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 never knew I was Trendy!

Thank you so much to Tara from The Trendy Treehouse for
her Trendy Blog Award! Tara linked up my most recent Sling Bag
to her Creative Share party she is hosting today, so head over there and
link up! I link up to several of Tara's parties each week, but here are just a few!

A HUGE thank you as well to Mandy at Sugar Bee Craft Edition for featuring the same bag this morning! You've heard me talk about Mandy before, she always has the cutest ideas on her blog!
