and the creating begins...

So here in our little world, we have been cocooning.This is my new life slogan. Spending some time organizing and make plans for the future via life lists and weekly schedules. If you've ever not had a "day-job" or a "9-5" as some would say, you know that it can sometimes be challenging to manage yourself. When you have the option to stay in your PJs all day, it sounds alluring. The first week. Heck, the first month even. But then it gets to a point, where you demand of yourself that you must be productive! Even if it has nothing to do with business!

SO! My big project of productivity was to learn something that I have been wanting to do a while now - TO SEW! :) I've been collecting fabric and patterns for (literally) years, and have never had the time or the machine to learn. But recently, my aunt Belinda took some time out to show me how to use a simple sewing machine and she even graciously let me borrow it to practice! Isn't she beautiful?

It is slow going at best, but it is exciting to see something through to the end and to be proud of it! My first project was to make a inside pillow for this feed sack that I have had for FOUR YEARS! (I guess I was hoping that it would magically turn itself into a pillow!)

My aunt sewed the zipper in for me but I made and stuffed the inner pillow all by myself! And I love it! I love where it looks like someone tried to sew up a little hole, but decided to use thick black thread? Why? I'm not sure, but it does make me happy. Happy Friday!
