That quote really reminded me of those days in University when I began taking every challenge in life head on. What have you done lately that challenged you? Here are some of my recent challenges:
- I've gotten back into sewing and have converted my office into the sewing room I've always wanted. My first project was a cute jumper with a ruffle at the back. Next up is a skirt and vintage aprons!
- Every year my boyfriend enters a neighborhood rib festival and this year the secondary entry is cheesecake. I love cooking and eating, but I've never been one to bake all that much. I find there's not enough room to experiment or cook on a whim. But given my love of a good food challenge I signed myself up (or was I forced? I can't remember...). My first two attempts have been a bit of a disaster. The picture below presents nicely and they were tasty enough, but didn't hold up very well. Both attempts have not produced a "winner". This weekend will be better. Third time is a charm!
- I love the feeling of accomplishment when you use tools to put up pictures, shelves, or in today's case a curtain rod to showcase the fabulous drapes my mom made me this weekend!
