dear readers...

last night i just had to sit down, take some deep breaths,
and calm myself.
sometimes even keeping lists, managing my time and 
readjusting my expectations
doesn't keep the "how can i get it all done monster" at bay.

honestly people,
it doesn't all get done.

i may be a heretic, but i think that's o.k. 


yesterday was my 300th post.

lurkers, followers, regular commenters...
please tell me what you would like to see more of here
at sew and sow life.
what is it that you come here looking for?

i am so interested to see what you have to say.
many thanks.

and don't forget to BREATHE!


  1. In my life if I "get it all done" it usually means I'm not fully involved in life - I would take it as a badge of honor that you are living your life richly, no couch potatoe badge for you! As for what I appreciate about your blog - it's just your thoughful, intentional living style portrayed with honesty - and beauty (in your photographs & projects). You help to prompt thoughtfulness in my own life - thank you!!

  2. I love hearing what you have to say - we have so much in common, and it is just great to find other kindred souls!

  3. Thank you for the reminder. I worry too much about "getting it all done".

  4. Hi - wow. this blog is beautiful in so many ways. Make that sew sow many ways. Thanks.

  5. Karen,
    When I come to your blog I look for warm, homey photographs, pictures of your art quilts, words of wisdom and musings about life.
    Really, I just love to read about your "sew and sow" life!!
    Oh, and, of course, Henry!!
    Congratulations on # 300! Wow!

  6. I am new to your blog; I found it through the AEDM. I so enjoy your pictures, calming words, seeing what you're up to. it's fun to find someone out there who seems like they could be a kindred spirit. there are certain blogs I go to as a place to rest and rejuvenate. yours is one.

  7. To be truthful, I wouldn't change a thing. Your selection of ponderings, quotes, and pictures always give me something to think about and leave me with a good feeling.

  8. I discover your blog for the sew mama sew giveaway and was great to see a blog with so many words about hope and serenity. I like it the way is it. Maybe some more sewing stuff =p like tutorials or so.Thank you for be special

  9. I've tried to thank each of you via email or comment on your blog. Only one I can't track down is KeKe...I'm betting you might be Keitha? If so, many thanks for stopping by!
