Gentle Beauty!

What makes someone or something beautiful?
Is it how you dress it up? NO!
Is it a particular size? NO!
Is it how much makeup you adorn it with? NO!
Going into a textile store is like a candy shop for me. There is beauty everywhere. All colors, sizes, weights and textures. Throughout the history of the world, things that were considered beautiful have looked drastically different.
All types and colors.
I have friends that have been amazing influences in my life. The fabric that I am designing now is representative of my BFF’s from high school. As you can see we were all different hues and I LOVED IT! I thank God that I experienced a wonderful relationship with them.
Beauty is what's in your heart!

This is one of my designs, a toddler dress, made with the "ileeoz" print. I would love to see the wonderful things that you have created with this fabric.
Create with FUN!
You can find this Nursey Rhyme Pom-Pom Quilt at my Etsy shop!

These are items that will be avalible on http://princeileeoz.etsy.com/ starting July 1, 2009

Grace and Peace www. This is new and this is going to be fun! (Blogging: Inviting all into a world of open journaling.) So, how about an introduction. My name is Sonja and I love to sew. Some people say crafting, some say designing some say artist, skilled worker, artificer, or even creator. I say that we are all children borrowing pieces of talents called “gifts” from a massive originator. Some have the gift of teaching some have the gift of healing, the gift of loving, the gift of dancing, singing, motivating, empowering, story telling, building, designing, or even the gift of discernment just to list a few. My passion is sewing. I had an immediate obedience when I was younger of knowing that sewing would be at the top of my thing to do list. Sewing takes me to wonderful places especially when my children are happy and comforted with the items that I have made them. I am thankful and appreciative of this gift. Do I always know what direction to take my gift in my life, no but I shall never give up. Maybe this time
I will let my gift guide me through life.

You never saw him, yet you love him. You still don’t see him, yet you trust him—with laughter and signing. Because you kept on believing, you’ll get what you’re looking forward to: total salvation.
1 Peter 1:8-9
Let’s have some fun, shall we.
