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.

Words on Wednesday #13

This is speaking to me this week....

Though my struggle is not doing something I have never done...
I am more than willing to do something different if that is what it takes to achieve what I want.
But rather, do I really want something different in the first place?

  1. That "something different" always seems so appealing, some days. But is it...? This quote is definitely a better, more thoughtful position than the "insanity is doing the same thing over and over again, yet expecting different results".
