Injuring my knee in October meant I couldn't finish the redo of the sewing room which meant I couldn't do any sewing for Christmas gifts. I was really bummed about that. I did all my shopping online but I needed a gift for someone that I don't know that well. All I could think of was to make her a lavender sachet.
With a prayer and a pain pill, I went upstairs and went to work. I had to move boxes and tote bins, clear off the cutting table and sewing table and then remember where I had put all my supplies. Once I found everything I needed it didn't take long to make the sachet.
While I was choosing the hankie, buttons and lace, and coming up with a design, and then sewing it together, I felt like I was where I belonged. My knees were killing me, but I was so happy to be in my room doing what I love to do. I can't wait to be able to make again. I have so missed it the last two years and that's why I've chosen "make" as my word for this year. I have so many ideas for things to make and this is the time to make them.
What do you want to make this year?
Have a great day!
