Tea In My Sewing Room and Simplify!

It was a Fun surprise to receive this cute picture from Sarah!

She made my Christmas Baby Daygown using my pattern "Sweet and Simple Baby Daygowns".  This design was featured in the Christmas Sew Beautiful magazine.  But with a different Daygown pattern.  I like the way it came out using Sweet and Simple.  I like the tucks.

She did a very good job!

I have begun my New Year well! (having fun)

Tea in my Sewing Room with a friend is always a great way to begin the New Year!

Especially if you sew while having tea.

I am reading this book.

One chapter at a time.   
This is what I learned from Chapter 1 : Do One Thing at a Time.

Now, this is good advice for me.  I focus best when I have one thing in front of me.  I know this,  but there is so much I need to do and I want to do that sometimes I am all over the place, not doing anything well!  I want a simpler life.  I want to savor the moment!  To put this in sewing terms....enjoy the stitching.

To quote Joyce "  directing all of our faculties to the one thing we are doing on a particular day, at that hour, at that moment, we find it much easier to do.."   and for me that would mean NOT thinking about what comes next!

She gave a scripture for this chapter.  Hebrews 12:2

"..and let us run with endurance the race that is set before us, looking to Jesus, the founder and perfecter of our faith..."  Faith wise, it is all about keeping our focus on Jesus.  And aren't we to do all things as if to the Lord.

So, do your best!
