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.

The best gift....

This was the best gift under my tree this year!
I hope everyone had a wonderful Christmas yesterday! This week I will be sharing a fun new books of patterns, a Quilter's Guide to Quilt Shops (a fun gift from my Stepmother!) and a fun pic of my friend's little boy in one of my handmade holiday tie tees!
Happy Monday!
