My little shop will close tonight for my holiday
break. This means that I will turn my time toward
gift making for loved ones, instead of sewing for pay.
I have grand dreams, as I do every year. There is
so much to make, so much love to stuff into each
moment. I will not get it all done; I never do.
Each year I put things aside, and let them go.
This year I really, really want to get them all done.
I feel like I've put aside more this year than I'd like.
I want more marks in the "complete" column,
and fewer in the "I wish to" column.
I did get a purple minion made for a friend.
Yesterday's plans to meet with a sweet friend fell
through, so I was able to cut and sew a project
from start to finish in one day. (This is a rarity!)
It felt so good. And it felt even better to watch
him open it, and love it, today.
