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
What is balance? For me balance provides stability and structure to my designs. It’s though weight distribution in the design by the placement of my element. When I talk about my elements that could mean the placement of the blocks the arrangement of the blocks the arrangement of the borders the existence of the porters and even the placement of color.
An example of balance can be achieved by simply placing a large element on one side with a design of small elements on the other side. Here is a picture of balance in one of my creations.
You dear children, are from God and have overcome them, because the one who is in you is greater than the one who is in the world. 1 John 4:16
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
The gatekeeper opens the gate for him, and the sheep listen to his voice. He calls his own sheep by name and leads them out. John 10:3
Looking over my to do list. It’s Monday morning and I’m inspired to create clothing items for my upcoming trips to Tennessee and the UK. When traveling to teaching I like to wear clothing that I have created. Today I sew not out of necessity but because I love to create clothing. I have many styles in which I enjoy wearing. When I go to the clothing stores many times I’m frustrated because I am unable to find clothing that fits me in the fabric that I would enjoy wearing.
So today and for the rest the remainder of 2018 I have decided to make all of my clothing. I started this venture the first day of 2018. As of today I have been successful in making all of my ready to wear clothing items. Here are a few of the items I have created thus far.
Stay tuned I had so much more to show you. I am jumping in all feet first in looking at vintage patterns. Fashion is what you make it and I plan to make it everything it can be and more….
Cast your cares on the Lord and he will sustain you; he will never let the righteous be shaken. Psalm 55:22
