It's Monday---

It’s a Monday. When you have a good weekend, it makes the day almost tolerable. My mailbox was filled with goodies on Saturday, Fabric and Flower seeds from a friend.
My favorite is a patriotic print with words. I love holidays and birthdays. But there is just something special about receiving a gift just ---- Because.

I made this journal cover a while back.
I’m not real crazy about how it turned out, but it’s kind of growing on me. Trust me, I’m not fishing for compliments—I guess I’m just trying to say that sometimes you sew things and they just don’t turn out the way you want them to. But you don’t give up. Nobody died. Just try something else.

Kind of like life sometimes… maybe……

I've always heard - give it three days - well sometimes it takes three weeks, but things do tend to grow on us. Personally I love the flower on the front - just springy enough (we have snow today so I neeeeeeed spring) :-)

I agree that 'just because' presents are the best. Yours was a very nice one too!
Enjoy the rest of your already sweet day!

I have a few projects that don't appear nearly as bad as my mind's eye recalls them. I've learned to put a little distance into my perspective when I can *s*

That's a good philosophy --and on a Monday morning yet!
I know what ya mean...I made a bag recently that didn't turn out quite the way I had in mind (yesterday's dinner ditto!), but I like the fabric and it is functional, so I'm ignoring the rest.
I like your sunflower...hey, I like the fact that you made the cover and it even has a flap for goodness sake! :-)
Have a good week!

You are right that sometimes things don't turn out how you expect but it is only fabric. There is lots more available.

By the way, I like your journal cover very much.

Don't see a thing wrong with the journal, it is lovely.

It is nice that you have people in your life that send those just because gifts.........must mean you are special?
