Something things just test your resolve.
I’m not going to harp on the various challenges. I will just bask in the success.
My sewing skills are def improving. I am now beginning to see more clearly how to fit things together without a pattern/guide. I am pleased with that. When I first began to sew I was definitely
retarded slow to learn. I didn’t get it. It was VERY foreign to me. I literally just followed step-by-step without comprehended so in the end it would look like I knew what I was doing. I was the one with the pencil reading each instruction about 5 times then checking it off once completed. I am no longer at that stage, praise God!!! But I still have a long way to go. Well maybe… Not sure how far I want to take this.
This was weird because I had learned to knit as an adult as well but I never followed a pattern and I made a bunch of stuff. Some reason I just got it.
Anywhoo, you are probably wondering why this post is titled Ghana. The tie dye material I used in the bag came from a piece of fabric that I got in Ghana in 1997. It was my favorite scarf until I literally wore it out. I haven’t worn it in sometime but i was holding on to because i knew that one day … i would find a use for it.
FYI: I’m usually not that sentimental or hold on to things but this fabric… .
The good thing is that now I feel like I can let it go. Anyone want a bag?
Just kidding. It’s Faith’s if she wants it. I am sure she does. Although she wasn’t born she seems to relish that period in my life.
