I have learned something about myself this summer! I don't really like to follow directions when it comes to creating! I have been sewing without patterns, making it up as I go. I'm no expert! I just want to do what I want to do! So Craft Rule #4 is please yourself when creating! If you aren't happy with what you are doing, why would you expect others to be happy with it? Share your joy, not your frustration!
This crafting thing is about creating joy. The joy found in the process itself plus the joy in the finished object. Go have fun! (rule #1)
