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.

Stop to Snap the Buffalo

Only in TX can you drive by a pasture of buffalo

in the middle of the city in between office buildings.

We drive by these every morning and this big guy

was finally close enough for us to take a picture.

Thanks Big Guy, you made Z's morning.

And mine too.


  1. What a great photo, Em. I love it!

  2. (and I may or may not be singing "where the buffalo roam....")
