Lucy and I have taken sewing lessons for the past two summers. We can only squeeze in a couple of lessons, but it is such a fun and relaxing way to spend time together. We have the most fabulous sewing instructor, who I also now think of as our friend. She is blessed to work at this amazing little place named Sew to Speak.
When you walk in the front door, you are greeted by this overwhelming fabric heaven.
I could stand in this room for hours and gawk at all of this hand made cuteness.
I am a passionate person, but I have only a small hand full of things that get me really excited. My savior, my kid, working out, vacations, and walking my dogs makes me giddy. Sewing with my daughter has become another passion for me. At the machine, I feel peaceful, which is rare for me. Not only am I a passionate girl, but I also have difficulty finding peace. I found peace here, with her. And when you find your peace, just go with it.
I pray that when Lucy is out on her own someday, she will find a use for her new skill. Whether she creates dance costumes, gifts for loved ones, or has her own business, I hope that she puts this skill to use. And I pray that she looks back and remembers this time we spend together. No cell phones, no ipads, no distractions. Just us, our friends, and some pretty fabric. Perfect peace(:
