I sewed a Gussy pouch last week.
CAN YOU BELIEVE IT?
And before last week, I honestly wasn’t sure when I would make myself one…
I decided last minute to photograph myself with my new ruffled pouch, with the wooden button stitched on top, and all my happy glory captured. Looking at this photo, I feel like this absolutely reflects my heart towards handmade. It is the foundation of so much in my life, and so being able to spend a little time creating last week was really fulfilling.
For a long time, I felt content knowing it would be months and months before I would pull out my sewing machine and sit down, and I was OK with that because I know there is a season for everything I want to do, even the really great things, but they can’t all be done at once.
A guess what? That same mindset applies to you too, my friend. We are in this together.
So that is what I’ve been floating on since we moved back to Michigan almost a year ago.
I probably won’t spend much time sewing in the coming months, but perhaps?
I just know it was really refreshing to turn on my machine and see the little light inside light up. It was almost like my soul lit up, too.
I never regret taking the time to create. And I feel really grateful to have my hands full with so much goodness.
Let’s not let go of the momentum creating creates…
