It's just my style...

My hubby texted me mid-day letting me know he had to work a late shift...till 9PM.
My response: "Okey Dokey...no problem. I'll wrap up things here at school, get in a long walk and hit the studio." I did all those things...what I didn't account for, is that my ambition may have resulted in one of my flower petals being unintentionally a little wonky! LOL! I decided...it's just style. 
I'm a gal who spents her days teaching 31 second graders, committed to her daily three mile after school walks with Jackson.  Admittably, I may have been a little over-excited at the opportuinity to wrap up the day with some sewing therapy.  As when I reflected upon my results, I noticed my imperfections. Yet, I decided I actually like them...because they are me! Especially because I had fun. I truly hope your sewing, knitting, and stitching bring your the same kind of therapy as they do me.

  13. I think the fun little quirks in our work make them all the more unique. Your flower is just too cute.

  14. That little flower only makes it unique, it is your "signature". And it is lovely! I agree that knitting and sewing are very good therapy. Then we also have to accept that sometimes when we need therapy, we are not always able to do the craft perfect :) Have a good time!

  16. When I look at vintage quilts it's the imperfections I love most. They tell me the amazing quilt maker was just another normal human being trying to use her craftiness. I adore the flower block ๐Ÿ˜€
