*An Inspiring Treasure*

Sometimes falling asleep at nite, it’s the next day’s to-do list or how I can live the next day better than today that runs thru my mind.  On a few occasions tho I have envisioned a runway.  A fashion runway.  And me sitting there front row.  Pieces I can’t recall ever seeing before, like I’ve created them right there in my semi-asleep state.  And the dreams go from there with me being able to create this interesting, original clothing.  However that’s only in my dreamland.

I don’t really know how to sew.  Back in 8th grade we had sewing class.  I was the girl who sewed my finger.  Completely shocked with the needle sticking thru beside my finger nail.  Their machines had a pedal that you pressed against with your knee.  And clearly I was not being careful when I was lining up the fabric to keep my leg away.  It wasn’t painful, I still just find it quite amusing.

When I tell people I’d like to learn to sew so often they remember the wonderful seamstress my Mom is and how us 4 girls often wore lovely homemade + matching dresses.  Unfortunately that’s not an inherited talent.  My husband knows how to use our machine better than I can!  The desire to be able to sew my own pillow covers, a fun skirt or even just mend without having to hand-stitch was re-sparked with this fabulous find.  A vintage sewing organizer.  Oh the things that inspire creativity.
