Day 15 - Hila
Hello, I am Hila.
When it comes to sewing – I have voracious appetite!
I nurture and value bold colors in my sewing collection,
I guess you could say that’s my signature style.
And, as part of my commitment to lifelong learning,
I constantly seek out challenging designs and unusual techniques.
I have a myriad of interests I pursue, but sewing is chief among them.
My love of bright floral's is mirrored from my equal love and passion for gardening.
I’d love to share a project that creates joy in me and in others whenever I wear it.
This is the Rainbow Moneta Dress.
Whenever I wear this dress I get so many compliments from all ages of people
and they tend to say that it made them smile and thank me for making them smile.
That’s a beautiful sentiment that is common to all humanity – joy.
This dress fills me with so much joy that I believe it overflows and passes on to others.
I have only always sewn what makes me happy
– I have never paid attention to any advice that says if you have broad shoulders
– don’t wear this, if you have a darker skin tone stay away from yellow.
My clothes are not for the pleasure of other people looking at me.
They are for ME.
So that’s my advice;
to have joy in your sewing – ignore what “they” tell you is suitable for your size/age/shape etc.
Sew for your own joy.
With heartfelt thanks I am sending much love to you and yours.
Thank you, Ellen for giving me this opportunity to participate in your sewing advent calendar.
