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.

Tuesday Treasury #19

Growing up, my Aunt Joyce used to make the most beautiful stained glass pieces and I remember being so enthralled with the beautiful colors and patterns of pieces she would make.

A few years ago, my mother-in-law gifted me with a beatiful piece of stained glass that now hangs above our front door, and while I do not have a picture to share today, I thought I would share some glass pieces I found on Etsy. Maybe I will get around to taking a picture of my piece sometime soon.....
