Positive Progress

“A positive attitude gives you power over your circumstances instead of your circumstances having power over you.” ā€” Joyce Meyer

That quote has always been a favorite of mine although I tend to forget it when times get tough.

I have made headway on organizing my crafting room. Going through all of my fabrics brought back memories of how I acquired them and all the joy I had sewing. Knowing that I will be back to it soon makes me very happy.

It had filled me with dread for weeks even looking at the room because every time I looked at it I wanted to clean it but I couldn’t bring myself to do it. The self sabotaging urges in me took over.

Now I just have to decide what I will be sewing first. As a goal for myself I think I will make a Christmas gift for people in my family. When I used to give them my crafts for presents – seeing their joy when they opened it and how rewarding it was to know that the time I spent on it was more than worth it. I know in the years I haven’t been crafting they have been wondering when I’m going to stop buying their gifts and start making their gifts. I think I will start with this duffel bag project to knock the dust off.

As I get back to organizing I think it might be time to oil up my sewing machine.

  1. You are very lucky to have friends and family who appreciate hand made gifts so make the most of that and start creating those Christmas presents. The duffel bag looks great and will make a lovely gift for somebody.
