So, I decided I would try a different route after failing miserably throughout the challenge.( Collapse )
So, a few months ago, I decided I would try to insert a zipper to make a small project bag for small cross stitch projects. Needless to say, I had to insert and remove the zipper from the first choice of fabric because the stitches assisted in shredding the fabric. Zipper 1, Me 0. Today, I thought I would try again by switching the fabric. This worked, but I inserted the zipper wrong. After the utilization of a seam ripper and tears, I gave up for today, but will rise to fight the evil zipper next weekend.......
Learning and growing or are we avoiding the very changes, which is indeed before us all?
Have I reached my true potential, or have I simply blamed others for my very lack of stepping out to be all that I know I can, and all that God wishes and knows that I can be?
We all have made bad choices in life, and yet have we learned from them?
Have we seen the possibility, which is truly before each of us, Or have we conveniently talked our way out of the very heights and goals, which we can reach in our life.
God placed us all here to not only learn, but to obtain, to not be knocked down, but to raise up and gain strength to fight and to achieve even higher heights than imaginable.
As the season will soon change, does it not help us to know that we are capable to reach beyond today and into hopefully tomorrow, with renewed hope, and heart and spirit, that we can make it through.
Don't cloud your mind with uncertainty or doubt, don't talk yourself out of all that which can truly be in your life.
Today reach your potential, today obtain the dreams,and goals, Today become the you, which you have always wished and wanted to be. Just as the seasons change, so do you and I.
So step out, and knock it out, and know that as long as you believe it, within yourself, it can be obtained, and if you think you can't, look into the Mirror in front of you and tell yourself that you can!
And always know that you and I are capable to achieve anything,just don't stop you or even let others stop you from being all that you can be, and on this Sunday Morning, know and remember that you and I are Never Alone....
Even when the darkness, which surrounds us all from time to time, for it's then that we all come to know that Angels are among us all, and that He is listening and answering your prayers spoken, and those which are in the silence of our hearts, thus again helping us to know that He cares, and He listens and again that We are Never Alone... Have a blessed Labor Day Holiday and Week ahead....
Tonight, I worked on sewing trim on a Regency dress that I have worn many times. It needs to be spruced up. (I think I have posted pictures in the past.)
Sunday, I start a class on how to make 18th Century stays. This should be interesting as I am not a very advanced sewer and have never constructed stays (translation: will probably need help from everyone as I have no clue how to do this even after studying the costuming books I have.) I am very excited to take the class though. I am desperate need of new stays and it will stretch my wings a bit.
