"We ask ourselves, who am I to be brilliant, gorgeous, talented, and fabulous? Actually, who are you not to be? You are a child of God. Your playing small doesn’t serve the world. There’s nothing enlightened about shrinking so that other people won’t feel insecure around you. We are all meant to shine, as children do. We are born to make manifest the glory of God that is within us. It’s not just in some of us, it’s in everyone. And as we let our own light shine, we unconsciously give other people permission to do the same. As we are liberated from our own fear, our presence automatically liberates others.”

A buttercup bag for Tracey

Just a quick one today. A couple of months ago, I wrote about a bag I made for my cousin Libby's birthday. Well the free pattern that I downloaded from here was begging to be made again. So I made this one for my sister-in-law's birthday. This time I enlarged the pattern by 130%. I love making this bag. Everyone could give this a go.... really... it's so easy!

How cute is this fabric?

My sister-in-law, Tracey, is a VERY talented quilter and crafter and she taught me to sew about 5 years ago and I haven't been able to stop since! She has given my family and me lots of beautiful handmade gifts over the years so it's nice to be able to give just a little one to her.

Happy Birthday, Tracey!!
