“I can't change the direction of the wind,
 but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.”

Jimmy Dean






 

Sometimes I find myself getting caught up in matters and schemes and before I know it I am feeling pressurised and a feeling of failure creeps in....only slowly and in a small way but either way it gnaws away at me leaving a negative taste in me.
A few months ago I was thinking about New Year's Resolutions - whether it was something I had eaten or a knock on the head I don't know what it was but I felt I wanted to develop my sewing skill (s). I suspect the main reason was it was during the winter months and I had been impressed by the many bloggers who can do wonders with a needle and thread and foolishly I felt inadequate when I considered what I could achieve.
I set myself a task of making something every month. Last month I made a cushion, which believe it or not is still being used.
I was only thinking the other day, that whilst I may not sew I can design and produce cards and stationery. Still a creative outlet for my thinking and ideas and I am ALWAYS making something - there is ALWAYS something in the pipeline. Only yesterday I produced the wedding invitations above for a current commission and after getting fabulous responses from the bride and groom today I will produce another 60! This is normal for me - so I do feel this is adequate and acceptable for a target and certainly an achievement.
So yes - I will adjust my sails and carry on!
Watch this space!
