Of course today marks the sixth anniversary of a tragedy. I know this is primarily a sewing blog, but I would be remiss if I didn't acknowledge the fact that six years ago life changed for people all over the globe, not just in this country. Though it was the precious lives of nearly 3,000 Americans that were taken that day, I believe people all over the world were greatly impacted by this tragedy. While there is nothing any of us can do to change what happened, there are things that each of us can do to affect what happens next.
We can commit ourselves to loving the people close to us wholeheartedly. We can remember to be grateful for all that we have and not complain about the things we don't have. We can pray. Pray that this nation will turn its heart to God. Pray that those who seek to harm us, will be consumed by the love of the Lord. Pray that God continues to bless America. And let's not just do this on 9/11 but let's remember to do it everyday.
To now talk about sewing might seem a bit trite, but isn't that what we have had to do as a nation? We must go on living and not let the enemy rob us of enjoying the life God has given us.
I think I have found the perfect fabrics for a good part of my fall/winter collection (that's what us designers call it - a "collection"). My plan is primarily going to consist of neutral colors like black, brown, navy, grey and cream/tan with a few splashes of accent colors like red, aubergine (purpley), pumpkin and yellow. Sounds kinda busy doesn't it?
Take a look at what I have pulled from my stash so far. Did I mention that I have a rather extensive stash?
