I am the very first to admit I am not much of a seamstress...but I can fix a button or a seam very nicely. I normally cringe a bit when brought an item that I need to fix. But when Lu brought me her Dorothy dress yesterday, I was more than happy to gather up my supplies. I use my Mom's old basket to keep my 'tools' in:
As you can see, I use the term 'tools' very loosely! I have enough in there to do very simple fixes:
I don't know the last time I enjoyed sewing something so much! It was just a calm, soothing activity, which was very needed at that time.
I took my time, didn't rush through...and fixed several issues with the dress:
Not to be all dramatic, but this week (and the past couple) have brought so many things into perspective for me. I am taking the time to truly enjoy the little things that present themselves to me through the day. The acts of kindness that have been given are overwhelming at times and I am filled with gratitude for so many people in my life (those that I know well and those I have never even met face to face) and feeling extremely blessed.
I should be back to regularly posting again next week.
Have a great weekend and STAY HEALTHY!
