Yesterday I wanted to sew something quick and fun and sort of outside-the-box (for me). So I raided my scrap bin and went to town on this little potholder.
Now it may not seem like much to all you, but I rarely make myself pretty things for use around the house. I usually give those things away and stick with my ugly but functional household objects. So I'm pretty happy about this little potholder because it represents a shift in my thinking. Lately I've really been feeling that while it's super awesome to give away most of what I make, I should make pretty things for my house, too. I want my kids to be generous and to think about others and how they can bless them. But I also want them to know that the same consideration is given to them and the environment they live in. So here's to turning over a new leaf!
Also, if you look on the sidebar over there you might notice that I have 100 followers. For some people that's so not a big deal, and I know that really popular blogs can have thousands. But for little ole me, it's kinda cool. I've never done anything to promote people becoming followers so I feel like if they (or you) did it's because you like something here and that makes me smile. SO. I've got a little celebration in the works over here in honor of all of you. Stay tuned for that!
