Being creative

Day 59

I love being creative.

A photograph I took of a Spreadwing Damselfly
became the pattern on 6 yards of Kona Cotton which became
my curtains.
I enjoyed the entire process.

Sewing Machine

Day 56

Once again I have fallen in love
 with my sewing machine.

The thrill of
 winding the bobbin and lowering the pressure foot
pulsed through my veins this morning.

I am back sewing!
