letting go...

http://www.thehappygal.com/letting-go/

.... and so after 16 years of ups and downs a new chapter begins.

It's not easy, I find letting go of a dream I've tried to hold on to for so long is super hard.

At least I'm glad I still find sewing calming (I made six Lola pouches and a few bags in the last few days). And I have new patterns ready to be released soon. I find keeping my hands and my mind busy is the best way forward.

Wish me luck :) Svetlana

  14. "To let go, what we want to hold and to go on, when we want to rest;
    those are the hardest decisions, that life saddles us!"
    Good luck and sew on :*

  15. I try to translate a saying that I like a lot:
    Sometimes you only see problems, like trees close together.
    Try to see the space in between
    and the light!
    good luck Svetlana!

  35. I hope things work out well for you, whatever may be the cause of your troubles. I do agree with you that sewing is so relaxing. When I'm troubled or stressed, I find sewing, knitting, making pretty piles of fabric... anything to get my creative side moving, really helps to calm and center me. Good luck!

  41. I really enjoy your blog: the easy way you write, your beautiful photos and of course all the things you make. I still in awe that you were able to whip up a sewing machine bag in a pinch!. Good luck with your changes. FYI, when I'm stressed, ironing helps.
