So Glad You Dropped By!

Marlene from Stitchin By The Lake  has been hosting a weekly blog-land look-about and I was listed amongst this week's sites to visit.  Thank you Marlene!

If you haven't taken a look at Marlene's blog yet you are in for a treat!  She is a lovely, talented lady and unfailingly gracious to all who visit her site. 

 I check out her blog every day, and am especially glad I did so early today last post was kinda cranky and I didn't want folks to visit and leave with the impression that I am a whiny curmudgeon. (I try to keep that part of my personality under wraps :) ).

Since I don't have a tutorial ready for you or even a new, finished project to show off, how about some cookies and coffee? (Guaranteed: no calories!)

Enjoy your look around my place, introduce yourself and, if you would like to invite me to drop by your place, I'd love to!

Pressing On,

Nuisance Sewing

I am going on record here (if I haven't already):


It mystifies me why folks feel like they're honoring me by dumping their belongings on me to repair/refurb...for free.  

I purposely do not do alterations for a living because I have no patience or interest in that line of work.  
There are many who do and they would be happy for the work and the money.

2013 is where I begin my "Just Say No To Alterations" campaign.
 Starting with myself!
I will not purchase skirts, pants, blouses or jackets that require hemming or tweaking in any way.

In fact, I'm seriously considering no longer making items for sale.  I've lost the fun of sewing and creating, and I want to get it back! 

OK...putting the soapbox away now.
(Edited to not sound so cranky) ;)

Pressing on,

                                           My word for 2013: FORWARD
Because of this: 
"Failing? What feels likes losing is really gaining experience. Forward!
Falling apart? Fall into whatever. comes. next. Forward!
Fearful? Fear is always the first step of faith. Forward!
Whenever you are lost, forward is always the way Home.
And in a fallen world, I fall forward into a New Year, and I fall forward into Christ’s safe arms and it is safe to trust. He is safe to trust." - Ann Voskamp
