I've always loved color, texture and pattern since I was very young. I learned to sew about eleventy years ago. My first sewing project was a yellow cotton print skirt with an elasticized waist and a matching belt with a silver filigree buckle...I earned my sewing badge in Girl Scouts despite my tastes in accessories. Thank you Mrs. Schilling wherever you are!
I love to repurpose things...Once upon a time, I cannibalized a down comforter to make double pairs of chair cushions...I apparently offered up my vacuum cleaner as a sacrifice as well (do not try this at home).
I credit my older sister who, on a rare afternoon, made me take apart my Home Ec sewing project and do it over properly. I'm quite positive I hated her at the time....and there were tears, mine and not hers...but I came away with the valuable lesson that anything worth doing…
