Monday Sew – Help I need to sew!

Help I need to sell! Are there days when you feel like the world is just coming in on you. And there’s nothing you can do right. You try your best but it seems like everything just fails. In those moments I always revert back to my go to.

Sewing is where I go when life is just not going my way. When I need a little break from everything. As you can see in the above slide show I love fabric, I love color, I love the textures of fabric, I love the feel of fabric. Fabric makes me happy. Some people love food, dancing, TV, Game shows, but I love fabric. Working with fabric brings me joy it also allows me the time I need to figure out many of life’s complex decisions.

In this week I hope you are able to go to your happy space and do what brings you comfort. I know that I will be selling at sometime someplace during this next week.

In my distress I called to the LORD; I cried to my God for help. From his temple he heard may voice; my cry come before him, into his ears Psalm 18:6

Friday Fun – Faith and Hope

head shot quilt hope

It’s Friday and I’m so glad to be able to sit down and talk about where I get my faith and hope from. For me my faith comes from knowing that Jesus Christ died on the cross for my sins. And that one day he will come back at the end of this world and we all as believers will be united as one. My hope it is built on nothing less then the whole Bible.

The faith I have in my ability to create comes from above. As I’m look towards the coming months and years I ask myself what do you hope for? Are you hope full that you’ll be able to continue creating beautiful pieces of art? I’m hopeful that the rest of my days I will be able to share the love I have for my family and friends and the belief that I’ve been saved I will be reunited one day with Family that has passed away and gone to heaven.

Here are a few of my creations that were inspired by my heavenly Father.

Praise be to the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ! In his great mercy he has given us new birth into a living hope through the resurection of Jesus Christ from the dead 1 Peter 1:3

Friday Fun – Who do you Follow?

Good morning all it’s Friday. Who do you follow is there particular designer, fabric manufacturer, or blog that you follow. I noticed that there’s no one particular person company or thing that I follow. For me I follow what my senses tell me I should do or create in any given day. For me my leading comes from God. When I wake up in the morning I always start out with a to do list. While looking over that to do list I get inspiration. From the inspiration I’ve been and guided towards a particular pattern, fabric, area of my studio in which I pull different items to start my creation.

So for you how do you create who do you follow? Here are a few of the inspiring patterns that I will be creating in the near future
