Cobbling a life.

My sister fondly (I think) calls me a cobbler for my tendency to make stuff and/or claim, “I could make that!”

I’m embracing that name here.

Cobbling is a mindset. It’s a way of taking the pieces in life—leftovers and layoffs, scraps and seeds—and putting them to use in a meaningful way. Sometimes you have instructions and plans and tutorials, and sometimes you don’t. Either way, there’s satisfaction in the homemade & the homegrown.

This blog is an act of cobbling itself: a collection of ideas, projects, words, & images that I’m cobbling together to create something new from the parts & pieces of life.

    Sarah! Thank you for inviting me into your world of cobbling 🙂 I loved all the projects you’ve posted so far, and I look forward to seeing your winter mum pillow on here! Thanks to you, I started my very own sewing project tonight. Just a little something to get me going, but you’re right — it’s so satisfying! Keep cobbling! 😉
