Over the weekend I decided to work on a simple little festive project to encourage my motivation to return and I am happy to say I think it worked! At least long enough to make these fun little holiday kitchen towels.
These are going in the mail tomorrow to my momma and my two sisters and I hope they enjoy the surprise!
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.
