One of the tenets of this thing I like to call Meream’s Mystical and Magical Guide to Life is that
ALL THINGS FALL INTO PLACE.
This is not, in any way, an excuse to be passive or not to exert any effort at all. In fact, another principle included in the aforementioned guide says something about working your b*tt off, wisely. Because when you do, and you do so wisely, the work itself becomes the reward and the bonus? The bonus is that things fall into place.
Yes, I know, it’s confusing. This explains why I’m the only one who subscribes to my Guide to Life. Heh.
One of the recent examples of things falling into place in my life is this current design collaboration. This is with a local company that is admirable in its principles and products. I will blog about them soon. For now, a sneak peek into what I am making for them:
It’s messy work but this is happiness. There is nothing forced and false about the process of carving a stamp and using it to make beautiful fabric. And every step of turning said printed fabric into a purse or a bag feels right. Even when some things go wrong (misprints and pin pricks, anyone?).
I have several dozens more of these purses to sew. The following week is shaping up to be one of the busiest as well because we have the Medieval Day to prepare for. No regrets. I can feel things falling into place.
