A funny thing has been happening as I've been allowing myself to feel more, journal more, read more and pray more about my infertility- I've been more creative.
I actually got my sewing machine out last weekend and made these cute little pillows for our sofa.
Alivea helped me. I let her push the pedal on my sewing machine and we had a great afternoon. And I'm pretty psyched about the results. I used an old quilt top that my grandmother had bought at a yard sale. I love the little chevron one and the one with the flower. I also used part of the quilt to put in that embroidery hoop and hang on the wall. The other smaller hoop is filled with some embroidery practice that Alivea did. I love all the bright colors together. Also, on this little collage wall are two of the prints that will be available in the my life (his mission) shop when it opens in about a week.
It's funny how allowing myself to be more real has affected me in so many more ways than I thought. I know I'm not done yet. I still have work to do- hard work. But I know the pay off will be worth it.
I'm linking up here today,
