Sewing reveals my imperfections. You see, nothing I make is exactly perfect. Sometimes I do the hard work of taking my stitches out and redoing the sewing. Other times, I let it go. Recently, my greatest imperfection is my inability to measure correctly. I get it all ready to do the final sewing and my pieces are not the same size.

In life, I am not perfect. My ears probably aren’t level, my nose might be off center, my hair is thin, and I sniffle when I am concentrating on something. But that’s part of being handmade. The beauty is in the slight variation from one person to another.

“Do not despise these small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin, to see the plumb line in …’your’ hand.”

Zechariah 4:10

Where do you see your imperfections? They aren’t bad – they are just the slight variations in coloring that make the fabric of your life interesting! Grab the plumb line and go to it!

  1. Imperfection? That I’m too picky in other people’s eyes. This may have something to do with my job – working in a chemical laboratory where accuracy is the top priority – but I also do it in sewing classes. Where the others are already finished with their project, I’m still cutting and measuring to be precise. Sometimes it’s annoying when it takes me so long to finish. So it’s a blessing and a curse to be so picky.
