A Sense of Accomplishment

I have just finished a great project. A customer gave me sweaters from her father in law. I cut them up, sewed the pieces together and then bordered and backed them with linen. I have been working on it off and on for awhile. It's finally done and I 'm really happy with this project. This is what I love about my little business All Stitched Up. I got to make something that will give joy to others. And it's something I wouldn't necessarily have made for myself. I don't have a stash of cashmere sweaters.
It's not often, either, that I get to make something all myself. I'm usually sewing something together that someone else worked on. Also, I still like it. Sometimes I get to the end of a project and I'm worn out of it. Not this - I think its great. I wish you could all feel how cozy it is too. Have I bragged enough yet ? I do just have a good sense of accomplishment.

I love what you put together! So very resourceful and it turned out great. I've picked up a few sweaters from thrift stores, but nowhere near enough to make anything much.
