I'm amazed at how my flowers manage to stay colorful through the heat and drought.
touching fabrics, seeing colors, imagining designs is the most inspiring
I finished a handbag from a kit and it was fun. Very different from what I usually do.
I used a Marci Tilton pattern to make a jacket from a stripe that was in my stash for years and it turned out great.
I would love it if I knew a few new things I could do with my old serger.
No matter how careful I am, the top measurement of the quilt is never the same as the bottom one.
My very first REAL completed quilt was a kit and I was so thrilled I haven't stopped quilting since.
I've given up trying to understand the judges. The guys were all blah and the girls were too much. This is a first date?
Handbags are my latest thing. I'd like to know more.
I have an ambition to make my own patterns. This would help.
If I had something that would help me fit a pair of pants, I would be so happy.
I'm going through my Christmas stash tomorrow to see what inspires me. My Threads is read cover to cover every month. It's what keeps me up on the fashion trends.
I've made a couple of bags. It's my new thing. I'd love to learn more.
I would do it in linen. A print top with a solid skirt in 10-18.
Like many others, I have a couple of granddaughters who are just starting to sew. They would love it!
I've just started making a few bags. A rigid bottom would be a big help.
Read through all the directions first, then read them all again!
I use my serger but only on the same old t-shirts. Something new would be nice.
I would like to have a real sewing book after struggling with pattern instructions all these years.
I live 7 minutes from a Jo-Ann's which is great if you run out of cobalt blue thread or you need a zipper NOW. But there are not a lot of surprises. I miss the old fabric stores we used to have. Like MargieW. my daughters,a granddaughter and I occasionally make an excursion to the fashion center in downtown Los Angeles. We never miss The Loft which is the outlet for Michael Levine. A whole different experience.
For a quilting junkie, this is heaven. I enjoy reading quilting books almost as much as making them.
I walk my dog twice a day and garden, lots of gardening.
I've made a few and they're fun. I'd like to have new ideas.
I've struggled with my serger foe years, This would help.
I have a Corgi (me and the queen) and she looks good in clothes even though it is a struggle to get her in them.
When In was a little girl growing up on a farm in the midwest, my mother heated her flatirons on a wood burning stove. Shirts, dresses, blouses, skirts were always perfectly pressed. I've never been able to match that.
I've never been to New York but getting the fabric would be the next best thing.
I first knew Kaffe Fassett from his quilts. He really knows his colors.
Since I'm pretty vintage myself, I'd love to have a book about the patterns.
I appliqued a pony on a green field and blue sky for a great granddaughter. Her mom loved it.
Like a lot of quilters, I started out with the intention of using up 40 years of scraps. I'm still trying
I'm teaching my 10 year old granddaughter to sew. She'll love it.
This year I'm making a couple of granddaughters pajamas from cute flannel I've had for a long time. And a grandson is getting a quilt it took forever to finish.
I have an old Bernina, but it is still humming along. Would love a bag
It's too hot to sew, so a mystery so a mystery about it would be great.
I love sewing and I love learning about sewing almost as much
so the DVD wouls be wonderful.
I could really use these books even though one of my sewing daughters would probably borrow them before I could crack them open.
Serger Secrets? I could use that. Along with most eerything else.
I've had to get rid of most of my old sewing mags and books. This would be wonderful.
I sew by reading the instructions on the pattern sheet. It would be great to have a real reference book.
What a great book! After 40 years of trial and error sewing, I've never had a real reference book.
Designers? I like them all-even the far out ones. I have a year to make a wedding dress for a grandaughter so I need all the help I can get.
Every year I get a small calendar I keep in my sewing desk. I sew for me, family, pets and friends. Clothes, quilts, pillows, mending. Every time I finish a project, I note it on the calendar. My sewing goes in fits and starts so when it seems as though I have accomplished very little, I can look back and see that I actually did quite a bit. Even if it was mending a pair of jeans. Which I'm pretty good at.
I'm teaching my 8 year old grandaughter to sew and she's a whiz but it is harder than I thought. After years of doing things my own way, it would be better if it was the right way.
From someone who believes the last great designer was Levi Strauss, I have to say I love watching Project Runway.
From the Oh My Gosh- how did they do that?! to the train wrecks. It is amazing to me to see the engenuity and creativity of the designers in such a short time. The judging is a mystery to me but who am I? It's a competition, a reality show and a soap opera. As long as I can appreciate it for what it is, I'll keep on watching.
