About

The fabric of my life...

The other day one of my young deaf students looked up at me in the endearing way of the very young and said, "Why are you old?" I looked right back at him in the amused way of the not so old and said, "Why are you young?" I then proceeded to tell him that he is young because he hasn't lived and grown and loved for very long yet and I am "old" because I have done those things for a much longer time.

So, as I approach the end of my teaching career, I am ready to stretch and grow in another direction. It is time to indulge my other passion. I am ready to embrace the 6 year old in me. I would like to spend much more time in my play room. For many years my sewing has been a summer and weekend pleasure. Hanging out in my sewing room is and has been therapeutic. There is nothing like getting lost in the moment and worrying about nothing more than which color is right or which fabric works or which design must come to life.

I have lots of living, growing, loving and creating yet to do. Those piles of fabric and boxes of buttons are calling me and I think it's time to answer.

I love all kinds of fabric, especially pure cotton. Currently my fabric of choice is the cotton from men's shirts. Soft, comfortable, mellow. I love the challenge of finding just the right shirts to mix together to make something new. The idea of giving new life to a shirt is very compelling. I wonder what adventures it had before it met me and what adventures are yet to come!

You will notice that my work morphs from soft and mellow to bright and spicy. I love the challenge of new designs and new ideas. Life is mellow, life is spicy ...... so are my creations.

So glad you stopped in to visit my shop. All the creations you see 'morphed' out of my sewing room. Now that the kids are grown, I have more time to play. My house is filling up with fabric creations so I figured it was time to see about selling some of them.
All of the patterns and designs you see were created by me with love, laughter, passion and care. I like things that are made to last so that is how I make them for you. Good materials, well constructed. Hope you like what you see.
