Well, blogging serves two purposes for me.
First, writing about crafting/sewing somehow keeps me creatively inspired and motivated to keep sewing/crafting. Truth be told, I think I would have probably given up on this year-long challenge about half way through the first crayon roll if I wasn't writing about it. It's as if one gives life to the other . . . kind of a "Which came first - the chicken or the egg?" thing.
A table runner my mom made for her mom.
A stenciled tulip my mom made into a wall-hanging.
Many other toys, books, trinkets full of childhood memories.
