If I Had My Child To Raise Again
I would finger paint more and point the finger less.
I would do less correcting and more connecting.
I would take my eyes off my watch and watch with my eyes.
I would care to know less and and know to care more.
I would take more hikes and fly more kites.
I would stop playing serious and seriously play.
I would run through more fields and gaze at more stars.
I would do more hugging and less tugging.
I would be firm less often and affirm more often.
I would build self-esteem first and the house later.
I would teach less about the love of power and more about the power of love.
Diane Loomans, Full Esteem Ahead
Soon to come.....................Keep an eye out for a soon to come tutorial as I try to find my way through the pattern book from Fiona Bell - Sewn With Love (also entitled Vintage Style for Kids). Innocentia has been doing a sew along for some of these patterns, they are beautiful. I have decided to make my little one a beautiful dress and will be combining one of the bodices with a tulip skirt as a different twist!
