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.

Its been a while...until tonight!

I have exercised incredible restraint when it comes to buying new fabric and it has been a while since I would allow myself to buy some (like, since before Thanksgiving I think!)....until tonight. Look at these lovely Tina Givens fabrics I found this evening at the fun etsy shop Poppyseed Fabrics!

I love the cool greys with the bright pops of turquoise blue and golden yellow...aren't they pretty? I love them!
Now, of course, I have to decide what to do with them once they arrive in the mail next week. Any suggestions?


  1. I love the yellow!

    No suggestion but I'm sure whatever you decide it will be gorgeous!
