Ringrazio @johandmadedesign per questa foto scattata durante @ilmondocreativo ormai una settimana fa. Mammamia come passa il tempo! Quesi quattro giorni insieme a tante pazze creative grazie a Monica @zuccheroimburrato sono sempre una cosa meravigliosa e devo dire che già mi mancano 😥 soprattutto in questi giorni che me ne sto rinchiusa in laboratorio per lavorare alla grande novità che vi svelerò prestissimo senza restare indietro con le commissioni... Sono diventata un eremita!

I started this shirt with See&Sew Pattern B5907 View B in size M, which is my usual go to size. Either I have shrunk significantly recently or I have always overestimated my size or the pattern sizings are way off ... the end product was much too big. So I have to cut off the sleeves and start over free hand. Very happy with the matching stripes ... almost perfect! #sewing#sewingproject#sewingknits
Inspired by this cardigan from J.Crew, I used an old cardigan + this really ugly scarf I got as a gift(good thing my mom doesn’t have IG😅) to make a similar one. .
I want to share one of my favorite stories about gratitude, this article has helped me be more happy than any other article I’ve ever read. .
A man just finished grad school, got a job & a house with plans to renovate, complete with a gym & a library. Within 7 months, he got married to a girl w/ 3 young kids, then they were expecting. He got a 2nd job as a newspaper delivery man. One day while driving, he felt the blues, the weight of the stress of trying to stay ahead in this competitive world. As he pictured his family, friends, his house, one sentence entered his mind, “Life doesn’t get any better than this.” . .
He realized it didn’t mean life couldn’t get any easier or he wanted to have the blues. It simply meant he had everything he needed. And it hadn’t been that way when he lived alone & roamed his house, planning the interior.” .
Years later when his aging parents came to live with him & as he woke up at 3 am everyday to help his mom, he knew, “Life doesn’t get any better than this.” He never got a library or a gym, but in the midst of a very full house, he was grateful for what was also a very full life. .
“In the midst of finals, a romantic crisis, or a conflict with a spouse or roommates, it’s a sign of spiritual & emotional maturity to remember “life doesn’t get any better than this.” It’s because it’s your life right now, and nothing is more invigorating than living your life. To do so is to really live.” -Elaine L, Jack .
What if I lived every stage, every moment of my life thinking, “Life doesn’t get any better than this.” Isn’t that a life truly lived? If I live like this and when I’m on my deathbed, wouldn’t I truly be able to say, “I was the happiest person in this world.”? . .
So I choose to really live. Life really can’t get any better than right now. Even though @jaystory9 busted his hand while interrupting my instastory(you gotta see it).😜 I’d love to know one thing(or two) you’re thankful for!
In November of last year I made the conscious decision to not purchase any new clothing and set out on an adventure to start making everything I wear. - A friend from my youth posted on Facebook to watch a documentary - @truecostmovie ... After watching it I knew nothing would be the same in how I consumed what I wear. My husband knew I always loved to sew but living in an RV, yes 51 sq ft, for three years it made it difficult to have space for that. We sold the RV in January of last year and he also purchased me some sewing classes with @commonsewing and I haven’t looked back since! I discovered there was a whole world of people that felt the same way about clothing as myself...and also so many amazing indie pattern designers out there that made patterns for clothes I wanted to wear! I’m thankful to just have the opportunity to do this. The time to do this. I don’t know what the future holds, but I know it’s going to be something so special and I can’t wait to share it with my community and with you. Forever thankful to @lorenrshaw and @bonnieannlewis for opening my eyes.
We are having Thanksgiving at our house today, so I decided to reupholster the couch in our entry way. It took all day. Guests will have a place to sit while they take off their boots, not so sure about dinner. To the kitchen! Happy Thanksgiving everyone! #thanksgiving#upholstery#couch#sewingproject
Happy Thursday everyone and Happy Thanksgiving to all our US customers! Enjoy your turkey!
You want to know what we're thankful for? All of YOU! This has been our busiest and most exciting year yet. So, we're hiring again!
