Although I have cut back in some areas of sewing, the reviews, messages and cards that I receive from clients, makes me feel appreciated for the gift of sewing that God has blessed me with. For me, it is a sign that I am serving where I need to serve. Here are some messages I received over the last two days, in response to some masks that were shipped out, and now being worn with delight.  Of course, no one ever thought that masks would become part of our wardrobe, but it happened. It is temporary, but I truly hope that people continue to showRead More →

Therapy Neck Pillows are now completed. I only made a handful of them, as my plan was to make them for my own personal needs as well as some for the family. Yet, with inquiries, I made a few extra, and depending on the response I will possibly make more. The main purpose was to help support my neck when laying down (not sleeping, although I have dozed off occasionally) in order to put pressure on my neck (cervical), replicating the maneuver my massage therapist and chiropractor do for me.

Although we all desire to be done with the mask wearing, the mandates still exists, despite our desire to get back to normal. It is hard, I get it, but I have to admit, I am grateful that I do not have to wear a mask for 8-10 hrs every day such as those who work in healthcare, retail and other industries.

With the decision to create more due to various reasons, in addition to sewing, I will be doing a bit more crochet. This here is my 3rd afghan for 2021 and will be gifted to our middle daughter Holly, who will soon be delivering our 2nd grandson. Of course, when she saw these colors, she reminded me that her birthday was not too far off, hinting that she really loved these colors. No surprise to any of us in our family, as she has always been the one who loved bold, bright and beautiful colors like these. So how does a mom resist, when herRead More →

Starting in 2021 my goal is to be CREATIVELY FOCUSED: What does this mean? My focus going forward will return to my roots of sewing with pleasure and joy, creating from inspiration. In doing so, I will be creating more with materials on hand along with repurposing. I will occasionally create products to sell, that will be available to the general public, yet I will not become a mass producer unless I enjoy making the product. I will showcase them here on my site and social media, with the possibility of selling in other venues which is to be determined.You will be able to see availableRead More →
