Truly there is not except, perhaps a good book, a great pair of high heels and chocolate...
Well, there was not going to be any sewing projects in this house until I found my sewing machine.
I had hunted high and low for her and naturally she was in one of the very last boxes to get unpacked.
I am not really a true sewing sort of person, I struggle with proper measuring and following directions.
In fact, I made a cute table runner that required not a single stitch- DIY-no sew table runner.
I think I like to sew out of the lines, and that does not make for a straight seam.
But I can put together some simple straight stitches and create a few interesting projects.
I would like to be a more competent seamstress...as many of you lovely ladies are.
I marvel, coo and drool when I see the things you sew, you are amazing and inspire me!
So, I will start out with small, simple projects and see where they will lead me.
I was recently inspired by a lovely and energetic friend who is launching her own line of fabric and she just happened to be in the DFW area.
You just might know this bubbly, delightful, warm, talented and hardworking, sweet blogger,
Kari Anne from Thistlewood Farms.
She was launching her fabulous new collection of fabric at the The Quilt Asylum, in McKinney Texas last week.
There was no way that I was going to miss this launch, so, I hopped in my SUV and headed to McKinney, it is about an hour from Rockwall.
The ladies at the Quilt Asylum were terrific and made everyone feel so welcome.
The launch was amazing, with a very large turn out and I also had the pleasure of meeting
Kari Anne's sister and Bee from Windgate Lane, another lovely blogger who lives in Plano.
The Simply Eclectic fabric line is incredible, beautiful rich colors and perfect patterns.
These are the pieces of fabric which I purchased, but there are so many more choices.
I have an idea hatching in my mind, and I am not quite sure what direction it will take me,
but I hope to have it all completed within the week, to share with you.
I am so looking forward to this Friday as I am having lunch with two more blogging gals.
Such a treat for me to have this opportunity to connect with many of you talented, articulate, vivacious and creative ladies.
For me it is all about embracing, supporting and uplifting one another and I feel blessed to have the opportunity to meet as many of you as I can!
To my dear and precious readers and comrades in blogging you are amazing!
Let's make 2016 rock!
Wishing you a beautiful Wednesday!
