MY MOTHER TAUGHT ME TO SEW IN 1st GRADE. Since then I have been fortunate to have a real love for sewing and quilting. My therapy.
IN Junior High I took Home Ec. to learn the basics of sewing...my mother made me take it.
At one point I had sewn through the skirt I was making onto the skirt I was wearing...
held it up for my teacher to see...and
proceeded to show the entire class my underpanties!
I have endured pain while sewing...
I have sewn through my fingers countless times because I was not paying attention.
One time I did have to go to the doctor to have a sewing machine needle removed from my finger!
Can you say ouch? But all in all...I'm a lover of pretty fabrics, vintage fabrics, pink fabrics...etc.
Mom always said to sew what you love...try new things...if it makes you happy that is a good thing!
I have a love relationship with pink fabrics, and table runners. My table always has one on it. I love to walk in the dining room and see my table dressed up in a pretty outfit....tablecloth, tablerunner, centerpiece, sometimes flowers....
BUT I WANT TO SEE 'PRETTY' WHEN I WALK INTO MY DINING ROOM.
Everything is in my Etsy...no more sewing through fingers...only fabric!
