Lori, from The Inbox Jaunt (who shares fantastic FMQ tutorials every Tuesday) posed the question today,
"Who taught you to sew?"
I thought I'd answer it here...
My mom may remember teaching me (Mom??)
but I don't remember actually learning to sew,
I only remember sewing.
The first thing I can recall making
is the rosebud rice bags for our wedding.
But the fact that I made rosebud rice bags for our wedding
leads me to believe that I must have sewn before (?)
But then again, it could have just been that overconfidence thing.
Regardless of when / how I originally learned to sew,
sewing, and learning to sew better,
has been, for the past 27 years, and will continue to be, a lifelong pursuit
and a source of great joy for me.
I love taking a rectangle of fabric, and turning it into something useful.
I love improving my skills.
And having quality tools (oh how I wish my Janome was in peak form still) and fabulous thread.
I love the feel of quality fabric under my fingers.
I love wearing something I've made,
that doesn't look like I made it.
And we all already know that I adore the starching that goes along with (quilty) sewing,
even if I don't so much love the ironing.
I'm grateful that Tyler is not only tolerant of my sewing,
he encourages it.
Here's to continuing learning to sew
for many years to come :-)
