First, excuse me while Natalie and I do a little jig.
Project Run & Play! I'm working on the white sheet challenge and it's killing me! Holy Cow. I have never spent so much time just staring at my sketches and wondering which way I should go. I sincerely hope this isn't the week I go home.
Christina go. She should win a Miss Congeniality award for being the nicest person in the competition. (Side note: The funny thing about these two pictures is that they were taken within seconds of each other. Talk about mood swings. This is where my husband would pipe up with like mother like daughter. :))
And now. Laura, who this post is really for (and who I originally called Lindsay...REALLY sorry about that. I've been a bit off kilter lately!). Thank you for coming up to me and saying hi in Joann on Saturday. It was a pleasant surprise...although I was really sorry I hadn't done my hair that day! Okay...actually let me be honest. I almost never do my hair. :)
You said something to me that I wish I responded to. You complimented me on the dresses I have been making for Natalie for PRaP and then said you couldn't sew like that.
We exchanged nice to meet yous and then went on our ways. But...what I wish I said, was that, "YES, you can sew like that!"
When I agreed to do Project Run & Play, my original goal was to make it past the first week and simply churn out the best work I could do. I knew that I wasn't the most skilled or experienced sewer in the bunch, but I was excited to push myself.
What I have learned in the past two weeks is that, by simply trying and jumping in with both feet, I can do so much more than I ever thought!
I hope that my own sewing journey will inspire you to do the same. Who cares what other people think? Who cares that the first gift you sewed for your niece fell apart and was really, super duper ugly (true story)? What have you got to lose? Nothing. You can only get better.
I hope you have a great week and that you find time to try something you've always been meaning to. :)
And hugs to all of you who so kindly left me the best comments ever this last week.
See you Friday!
