long long ago - before I enjoyed knitting - I liked to sew. hell, I even quilted. I made my own clothes and used to make simple bags and the like for christmas presents. Then I sewed less and less. I could find things that fit better and were less risk in the shops - and I couldn't find a fabric to get excited about anywhere. My mother because a fanatical quilter and I liked to keep our points of difference to as many as I could. I stuck to sewing little things in felt for kids and the odd pair of pants for the pirate out of worn out pants of my own, and blinds for my windows, then I kind of stopped all together.
But now that has all changed through blogs. I have discovered a world of wonderful and amazing fabrics out there and what fantastic things people are doing with it. I met some very cool people who sewed things I loved. And though I can be smug about my knitting stocktake I also have to confess that I cannot be so smug about what I have been adding to my fabric stash.
I am making things - and am enjoying it so much. Like this
now I just need to get better at it
