I have had alot of inspiration to get back to my roots and start sewing again recently. Yes, I have been sewing since I was 5 (thank you Grandma Faye) and actually majored in Costume Design in college where I got a little burned out. Since then the most I have taken on is the occasional pillow, shower curtain, and duvet cover. I was lucky enough to gain a fabulous mother in law in my marriage to Mr. R who, among with other wonderful atributes, is a phenomenal seamstress. Momma D taught sewing for 30 years and I am hugely envious of her "sewing room" in Spartanburg. After our trip last weekend and checking out her latest creations for the Reynolds baby girls, including smocking (YES she smocks!), I am thinking of venturing back into the world of sewing. Lucky me, Vogue patterns had an amazing sale yesterday, patterns for $3.80 a pop and the sewing process begins!
