I think about this blog and wonder what direction to take it in.  I planned to be very structured and deliberate, make certain it was purposeful. 

 

But that just isn’t me.  If you are here, you already know I think outside the box.  I don’t do well with restriction, rules and boundaries.  Practical is just not one of the top 5 adjectives someone would use to describe my personality. 

 

When I get excited about a concept, a color, a design, a pattern, a fabric.. I’m like Bella kitty in these pictures.. I just want to revel in it, take it out and really explore all the possibilities. Right now, I am playing with a purse pattern, using scraps and hankies and crochet elements to add color and texture.  I made this one for Tamara.. can’t show you all of it, because it’s not all grown up yet. 

 

But Bella took it for a test spin and she approves.  Bella loves sacks, so when I put this purse on the floor, she jumped right in and rolled from one end of the room to the other, just playing her heart out.  

 

Looking at these pictures I took of her glorious fun reminded me of some awesome advice Tamara gave me.. she said  “just be yourself, Steph”. 

And so I will be following my free spirit and occasionally rolling around in fabric just for the fun of it.
