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.

Back in the Saddle! (a new finish)

Boy does it feel good to finally have another finish...and what a super fun one it is! This weekend I was able to steal away for a few hours to finish some projects that had been cut and laying in my "needs finishing" basket for oh....I don't know....a year maybe? Okay, for well over a year.

And this poor little apron was one of those projects. While it is not a new project for me (I've made them here and here), they are a great project to get back in the groove on becaues they are relativly straight forward and simple. For this one, my mother asked me probably 18 months ago to make a cute little apron for a close family friend's sweet little girl and all I can say is thank goodness she only nearly a year old at the time because fortunately I've made it just in time for her to be able to actually wear it!

I have a few more projects I am putting the finishes touches on this week and I can't wait to share them as soon as they are wrapped up. Happy Monday!
