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.

Share the love!

The holidays are almost here and I know some of you have already
started shopping, so now it is time to share!
If you have purchased a handmade gift for the upcoming holidays,
blog a little about it and then
link it up here to share it with others!
Or, if you have made a handmade gift for someone else, link it up as well!

This is great support for the shops you shop
and great gift ideas for everyone on your list!

I've already gotten the list started with a few fun hndmade gifts I recently bought...
