ZigZag Stitchery- I Can Do That!
After a lifetime of being creative out of necessity I have been really fortunate to be creative because it is also something I love. I loved making homemade gifts for friends-especially baby blankets and quilts. I love receiving homemade gifts as well. It means that you put a piece of yourself into that gift as I do with everything that I make. I was a single mom and I worked a LOT when my daughter was growing up but I managed to make her Easter dresses when she was small and every single Halloween costume up until she became an adult, but a few since then. Right up to last year when she turned 30! :) She has taken up sewing the last couple of years and I can't tell you how happy it makes me. She enjoys it and we can share in each other's creativity and frustrations when something isn't working according to the idea in our heads. It happens.
ZigZag is a secret word between me and my daughter. It's code for you can do it, I'm with you, we're in this together and sometimes it means it's going to get better, let's just get through this rough spot. So that seemed a no brainer to us as we pondered the name for my little store. And Stitchery, well, it just seemed kind of a fancy word for sewing, so there you go!
I live in beautiful North Carolina and I'm a southern gal born and raised but I was a proud New Yorker for 17 years. I grew up sleeping under hand stitched quilts and wearing homemade clothes and gave my daughter a taste of that as she grew up. I wouldn't be surprised if we were the only New Yorkers ordering White Lily flour on line (can't get that in the store up there) just so we could have those yummy biscuits with our gravy or to dip our chicken in before frying. She's a New York City gal with deep southern roots. So, she has the best of both worlds I think.
When I would see pictures in catalogs for beautiful bedding or pillows, bags or baby blankets, I would always think, I can do that (and for a lot less!) if I only had the time.
My daughter is and always has been the inspiration behind every daring thing I have ever done. She encouraged me to take the leap and do what I love. She is my biggest fan and loudest cheerleader and nobody can make me laugh or lift me up the way she can. I am so blessed to have her and her unending support for her mama :) So, together she and I, as always, we ZigZag.
