He Makes All Things Beautiful: God's Transformation of Our Emotional Wounds, Scars, and Brokenness by Marvita Franklin 

God has been amazingly faithful throughout the writing and publishing process! More details soon on availability and formats.  Love and blessings, Marvita




About the Book
What do we do with the emotional wounds and scars that cast shadows over our lives? How do we respond to the brokenness we experience from disappointments, betrayals, and abandonment?

Wounds need time to heal. Scars disappear over time—or they don’t. Whether they do or not, God has made you beautiful. Your wounds don’t turn God off. He knows why they are there, and He is committed to causing them to work together for your good.

Transformation occurs as you begin to see yourself as God sees you, say about yourself what He says, and embrace the truth about you as He speaks it. That is the point at which you will begin to hear what He’s been saying all along:I AM the soundtrack of your life; I AM the One who makes you beautiful.” This book will help you
  • expose the real culprit responsible for our emotional wounds,
  • examine the consequences of attempting to manage the perceptions of others,
  • abandon mindsets that mar your beliefs about your beauty,
  • learn to embrace Jesus’ model for caring for scars, and
  • discover lifelong tips for ageless beauty.

Uhh...Quite possibly my new favorite thing!

I'm having sew much fun on these jeans they might be my new favorite garment to sew!  They have come together well.  I'm in the process of fitting and preparing to attach the waistband.  I've been digitally documenting every detail.  I love the topstitching details.  I chose a funky twill for the pocket lining.  Even the zipper details came together nicely....  More pics later showcasing the hem and once the fit is finalized



McCalls 6963 - One of my favorite necklines

Pattern description: Close-fitting, pullover tops have draped front neckline variation, narrow hem on back neckline, and stitched hems.

Did it look like the photo/drawing on the pattern envelope once you were done sewing with it?
Yes, it did.

Were the instructions easy to follow?
There were easy to follow and it was another quick to make top.

What did you particularly like or dislike about the pattern? 
This is my favorite neckline.  I was a huge fan of cowl necks back in the 70s...hahahaah!

Fabric Used: One version is jersey. The other iteration is an ITY knit

Pattern alterations or any design changes you made: 
I didn't make any alterations

Would you sew it again? Would you recommend it to others?
Yes...definitely! I think it's a great staple for wear with suits or separates. Additionally, I think the ITY wears better. The jersey hangs great at the neckline, but was disagreeable at the midsection. The ITY, however, drapes smoothly and looks great.

Conclusion:
Great pattern!




I'm in on this...are you?

I love the show, "The Great British Sewing Bee." I hear there is one being produced for the US. In the meantime, Deepika over at PatternRewiew is hosting "The Great Pattern Review Sewing Bee" that begins in November. You'll have less than a week for each round of competition, and what's already in your stash should suffice. Comment below if you decide to participate! I'll keep you posted....
