I didn't even make anything for me. Often it doesn't really matter what the finished thing is that I make. I just really enjoy the process. Selecting a pattern, choosing the fabric, cutting, pinning, sewing....With music on in the background, I can just keep going, lost in the process. Sometimes I feel sad when I finish a project because my moment of 'being in the moment' has come to an end. Do you feel like that ever?
I made up a second pair of Summer Place Shorts by Maw Bell Designs for my daughter. The first pair I made a while back was for Rachael's Shorts on the Line series she hosted over the summer and I loved the pattern the first time around and really wanted to make a second pair in cotton. I used Robert Kaufman Everything Nice in Grey and they are a hit. Fresh off the machine last night, my daughter wanted to wear them to school today, so here are a few photos of our blissful morning walk to school earlier. And ahhh.....I'm feeling better already.
