What Am I Sewing?

There is an old saying., “Just because you can doesn’t mean you should”.  I try hard to remember that when I am sewing Christmas gifts.

I sew what I think is interesting, useful, cool or something the recipient would want.  Mostly, I find things that strike my fancy.

Often, what I think is wonderful, others don’t.  I get that.  When my daughter was a teen she wanted things that were “rad!”  That usually meant thing that were hideous or unusual, or just plain rebellious.   I have some of that in me.

So, it is important that I consider what others want.  I ask folks.  I look to see what is popular,

Sometimes I get it wrong.  Sometimes my kids’ criticisms of the gifts are wrong.

But always, I am making a concerted effort to give my recipients Christmas gifts from the heart that they will love and use.
