Thank you for the nice comments about my sewing room. It is my favorite room in the house, of course but was sadly in need of an overhaul. Now, that it's all cleaned up and organized, one would think I could sew something more clever than--
But no, Tshirts are what I need. I "whacked and stacked" this pile of knit fabrics, plus a couple others in my stash. I've made six so far. I don't know what to do with that diagonal print, but I thought it would be fun to play with.
I was at Jos recently, and bought these two old issues of Sew Stylish. They are Fall of 2007 and 08, bundled together. They're both good issues, which makes me wonder why I didn't get them when they first appeared. ???? I like this magazine, and don't intend to miss another issue.
Sewing tools are fun. These are my favorite because, not only are they functional, they are old-looking and wonderful. An awl and a point turner. They are made of iron- feel good in my hand. Christine Jonson, of CJpatterns.com was selling these when I was fortunate enough to be at her trunk show some time ago . Her husband is a blacksmith. He made these tools. Aren't they wonderful?
Now, I'm going to order some patterns. I definitely want to do some creative sewing!
I'm 60+years old (don't know how I got here)! I live on an island with my husband. I have a daughter, son-in-law, and 2 grandsons, who are the light of my life.
My grandmother put a needle in my hand when I was 3 years old. I haven't put it down since.
