Magic Fix #23: Sew Love!

I find that when I sew, when I put my concentration on perfecting the detail and enjoying the process of creating, just loving and fully experiencing every moment spent, the resulting creation is sheer perfection for me!
I designed and sewed this costume for my daughters role as Fairy Godmother in Cinderella.

I have been so enjoying my lovely little sewing nook, it has been heavenly to walk in there, look around and admire my lovely sewing machine, shining tools, buttons and trims like treasures in a jewelry box and threads that appear like candy; lined up and standing to attention, the neatly folded bright fabrics like wrapped x'mas presents beckon my excited fingers to come unravel them!

I sew some of my own clothes, including the one I'm wearing here.

When that sewing machine begins to fill the silence, I slip into a blissful meditation and one stitch at a time, something new begins its journey towards its creation.

I made this purse for my little daughter and it looks a little tired from all the lov'n it gets!

The magic fix to appease boredom and entropy in any ones life is to do what you love to do and do it often! Have you seen the Holstee Manifesto, its great for any young person trying to find their way around this world...

What is your passion?


  1. This is such an inspirational post! I too have experienced the excitement, joy and calm that sets in from the process of imagining an outcome, sitting and sewing and seeing the end result. My sewing machine has been collecting dust these days, but I have had such a strong creative impulse. Thanks for the much needed reminder of what sewing gives to me. I love your ability to capture this part of your life in words. As always, beautiful photos too! Simply lovely. xx - Monica
