PHew with a capital PH

     In preparation for the Merrie Monarch Hula Festival, I worked for days (and nights) sewing things for our booth at the Merrie Monarch Invitational Hawaiian Arts Fair.  Many hours were spent checking the clothes over, cutting the threads, ironing, and then hanging the clothes up.  They filled the clothes rack and I was satisfied.

      When we got to the fair site, we set up the frame for our "store."  Once the clothes were put up, it looked like such a small supply of clothing.  While the thought of "Oh, I should have sewn more," breezed through my mind...I had to take control and remark, "Nope, did the best I could with the time I had and couldn't have done more...and THAT is that!"

     Sometimes we are too greedy in trying to do more than is humanly possible.  The bottom line is time which sets the boundary for what is possible.  Rather than trying to fight against it, accept the limitations and be happy with what was accomplished.

  1. I'm very impressed what you've sewn. I'm so happy to find another blogger from Hawaii.
