Sewing My Way Back to Happiness

Sewing has always been a constant in my life.

Through good times and bad, my sewing machine has seen me through.

But I have to admit, it has collected a bit of dust over the last few years.

That's because my life changed forever in October 2009 when the world's greatest man, my husband Paul of 27 years, passed away from Cardiac Amyloidosis.

The grief journey is messy.

Watching my three beautiful daughters mourn for their beloved Dad has been the worst part. But amazing things have happened in their lives that I can only attribute to Paul repeatedly pestering God with, "Help my girls down there!"

I am the last to put my life back together.

My sewing machine has been beckoning,"Come sew with me."
So I am sewing up a storm again. The floodgates of creativity have been opened once again and I am enjoying my own little sewing renaissance.

A lot has changed in two years. Handmade items on ETSY are flying off their virtual shelves. Retro, edgy, modern, and urban are buzzwords circulating in the Home Decorating World.

My renewed motivation has me coming up with many new window treatment and home decor ideas. Keep posted!
