WOW!!!! My wonderful, thougthful sister Linda has sent me some books that she felt I may be interested in having. Linda is the original crafter in our family, she sews beautiful gifts for our family, knits garments that are just exquisite and does lots of other things to fulfil her crafty passion. Over the years she has always encouraged me (mostly without success) to look into myself and pull out that sewing passion that she knows that I had when I was younger and she knows is in me waiting for the right time to surface. Last year my family bought me a sewing maching, as I had decided that now was the time for me to get back into sewing. Linda has shown a real interest in what I was sewing, and over the past few months I have been telling her that I wanted to make some "special" aprons, but was unsure how to begin, and what to start doing.
I have to stay focused, my immediate reaction is to start this weekend and make something up, but no, I have made a firm commitment to get Emma's dresses made and posted after Easter.
Thank you, Thank you, Thank You Linda.......The first one I make is for you.
P.S. Linda owns a store in Brisbane called Threads and More, visit her blog: http://www.threadsandmore.com.au
PPS. It's going to be sooo hard to get myself to work tomorrow....All I want to do is to make an apron, that looks like a piece of art
