Three little raccoons,
sitting in a row.
One wants to eat popsicles,
These are my newest creations. I was out of raccoons and now there are three! I love them a lot! They will available for purchase at the Patchwork Holiday Craft Fair in November in Culver City.
I have been working very hard these days, almost to the point where I spend all day sewing. Sometimes I get frustrated and exhausted, and I question what it is that I am doing. I have a few commissions and things to make for upcoming craft fairs and it gets a bit overwhelming at times. But, I love doing this and I have to remind myself of this sometimes when I am up to my elbows in polyfil and faux fur.
This is what I chose and that’s why it’s happening for me. I had a dream and it has now come to life. I may have unleashed a monster or two, but all I have to do to get grounded again is go for a hike, or hit the gym and then I can’t wait to come home and sew some more.
I heard a great quote from a guy who was being interviewed on the radio the other day. I’m sorry, I don’t remember his name, but he said, “Take your passion and turn it into your income.” I like that a lot and it spoke to me because that is what I am working towards. And every time that I turn a softie inside out and see what I have created, I feel blessed with creativity. Yours in crafting,
