I feel like I’ve been on this sample making binge for a bit too long. The sewing marathon thing I’ve been doing for months seems to have used up too much of my brain power. And the proof of that…..the blog had a birthday last month! Well, so did I but the blog turned five! Five years of blogging!!! Talk about losing track of time. When I hit “Publish” on that first post, I had no idea where the path would lead. I didn’t have any grand plans or big dreams. I just wanted to put myself out there, take a chance and see what came of it. It did take some encouragement from Jane to get me motivated, I’ll admit. I’m so glad I listened, and heeded, her advice.
Five years later, I’m up to my eyeballs in fabric, madly sewing samples and making up patterns on the fly. By the end of this week, the furor will have died down and I’ll be able to breathe again. Maybe at that point I’ll be able to think more cogently about the last five years. There’s a lot to look back on, so much to be grateful for.
I’ve decided we will have a delayed celebration. I’m squirreling away some things for a fun giveaway, as I have time and clear thinking. Hopefully, by next week sometime I’ll have that all together. Including my mental faculties. (Between all this crazy sewing, the excessive heat and allergies, it’s been a doozy.)I’m dying to show what I’ve made for Market. Just a few more weeks! In the meantime, here’s a sneak peek at some embroidery which will be making an appearance in Free Spirit’s booth.
Okay, let’s cross our fingers and hope for a drama free week!
