If you’re looking for the giveaway and link-up parties for our Sew-a-bration of Womanhood you can find them here.
Sarah from Blogs Like a Mother is here today with a great pattern hack. But first we gave all of the contributors a general questionnaire and here are a few of Sarah’s responses:
“Sail on silver girl, sail on by. Your time has come to shine. All your dreams are on their way.” From Bridge Over Troubled Water by Simon and Garfunkel.
The reference to “silver girl” was reportedly a tribute to Simon’s wife who was noticing her first gray hairs. As a woman in the age group where we are starting to notice those not-so-subtle age related changes, I love that this age also comes with a sense of self empowerment and realization that this is also the time where we are comfortable and accepting enough of ourselves to put it all out there and follow our dreams.
Thanks for that quote and lovely words this morning Sarah! Now the rest of you head over to read about what she did to create the top in the preview pic above.
