"Easter is new beginnings. New life. Easter's about hope...."
It was a mellow Easter this year. No eggs were dyed and no chocolate bunnies were eaten. I spent time with my family and catching up with friends instead. It was super low-key and sweet, just the way i wanted it to be.
Hope your Easter was lovely. Love to you and yours.
"We emphasize too much on beginnings and ends, and do not pay enough attention to the in-between times which count the most in our lives."
Honestly i don't think that any one of us can be reminded of that sentiment enough.
If we make the between moments beautiful and care for it, it does not only allow room for the new dreams to manifest, but it creates this space for you to notice and be grateful for your life just as it is. Enjoy the moments of being here.
I am learning and practicing to trust the between moments to be kind, generous and to look after it where life as it happens (the present moments) because there is where the action is and that is where it creates the success of my future.
It makes me really happy to say that i finished my first blythe summer shirred tube dress project. It has been quite a while since i made something, so i'm pretty pleased with Rue's new lounge dress.I called it ~ the foxes summer dress.
Don't get me wrong, it has a few flaws, but who the heck cares, it fits well and it looks super comfortable. The shriing part was fun to make ~ i had a little trouble with pulling the elastic wound bobbin from my sewing machine due to my rusty sewing skills.
I have had this foxes fabric for quite a while, i'm super happy with how cute the dress turned out. I even made a matching dress for my little tinny girls because they nearly beg for new dresses.
Before i say anything more, i must say thank you so much to the sweet people who commented so kindly in response to Rue's arrival.
Happy weekend to you. I hope it's treating you well. I am having a great one so far and so fun to take photos of this sweet little girl, Fepe. I couldn't decide which photo to post today, so i picked two (well, make that three).
Her sweet face makes me smile...I'm overjoyed My thoughts and prayers are with the 239 passengers and crew on board a Malaysia Airlines flight from Kuala Lumpur to Beijing today. Love to you.
I also changed Rue's pull charms. They turned out so perfect for this little girl. I'm pleased as punch about finding them for Rue.
Charlotte helped us welcome Rue into our home. Charlotte and Rue have already decided they love one another to the moon and back. Charlotte thinks Rue is quite possibly the sweetest and most adorable big sister she has ever laid eyes on.
The sweetness never ends around here. Our little Rue has so much love to give. Truly. Hope you get some sweetness in your world today too.
Happy Monday, friends. I hope your weekend was swell.
I apologize for the lack of posts lately. I think my motivation to sew might be returning. I've been in a sewing slump for a while now. Maybe my desire to sew over the weekend has to do with sewing while listening to good music?
What's important is that i finally sewed for a sweet friend two new linen mini Cherry Blossom hats and had a damn good time doing them. These hats have been on my to-do list for a few weeks now and on Sunday morning i finally managed to check it off.
These mini Cherry Blossom hats are also loaded in my shop as made to order if any one is interested.. Be well. Love to you.
We're savoring the wonderful lazy day that often occur after the third day of Chinese New Year has come and gone. Naps have been very popular around here and a goodly amount of tasty food and drink has definitely been consumed.
Our first holiday of doing things a little different ~ calm and relax were extremely successful. Yes indeed. It was a great time full of sunshine, lots of good food with family and relatives.
I hope your weekend was filled with some lazy days as well. ♥ Have a beautiful new week. Love to you and yours. Off to read a book i go...
Remember i mentioned a few weeks ago, my goals for this year?
I want to work on to be kinder, be more genuine and be as open as possible to what comes. And tell people how much they mean to me.
My little journey starts by learning to overcome my fear and worries. I am that person that thinks way too much ~ so much so that these thoughts creates fear and worries. They always get the best of me and make things not happening. I want to learn to slow my mind down and focus on one's awareness on the present moment.
So here is my plan:
Just be kind
Do the best i possibility can
Always have that positive attitude to the future
Change my thoughts to : What would happen if...follow by something positive “Supposing a tree fell down, Pooh, when we were underneath it?' 'Supposing it didn't,' said Pooh after careful thought. Piglet was comforted by this.” ― A.A. Milne
And season everything with love
It will take time for me to practice ~ and practice i will! Hope you are enjoying your Sunday too. Love to you.
