From My Sewing Table: April

I hope everyone that is reading this is having a really good day. And if you are not, just know that in every new minute that passes you have an opportunity to change that.

Leading a happy and joyful life is choice that takes a lot of hard work.  I can’t believe how tough it can be at times to maintain that positive mentality.  I suppose that is one reason why blogging is so important to me.  It is an active step I take each day to write and share something that is positive and uplifting.  But I have noticed that choosing to be happy is easier once you make it a conscious habit.  Working and focusing on seeing the positive is a skill and can take time.  That is not to say that you ignore reality and avoid conflict, instead it means that you don’t let those negative parts of life control you.  Easier said than done?  Maybe.  We all succumb to the negative side, it is human nature.   But it is also human nature to crave the happy and cling to it for hope. So,  I choose to be happy, and I hope you will join me!

Well, its my birthday month, and on top of that it is spring!  The two together keep me focused through the rainy and often dreary weather that can often happen during April.  I am also happy to announce that the bulbs I planted last November, as discussed in this post, have started to bloom and are just lovely!

I am also on the last finishing touches of my book!  Cue fanfare and a collective sigh of relief!!!  I am so excited and can’t wait to share it with all of you.  Timeline for release date (barring any unseen circumstances) will be next month!  To be updated on announcements, previews, and special offers, make sure you have signed up for my newsletter by clicking HERE.  

Since I will soon have more free time on my hands once my book is done, I have started to create a new sewing project list.  And I think that one or two of these blouses just may have to make the list!  What do you think? 🙂


So make the choice, each and every day, to find happiness in whatever form you can!

All the best,
