Hi Brenda. I have never been to Florida but hope to someday....probably after dh retires. I have never entered anything in any fair....I suppose because I am my own worst critic even though my family thinks I do magic! I've tried so many things with needle and thread I can't believe it sometimes but I am easily bored so I keep looking for something new to try. I have been thinking about trying art quilts as they don't adhere to any pattern and I can use my stash more. I guess while I was growing up all the sewing I did was my learning curve. I learned to make my own doll clothes from age 7 even though they were rather rudimentary, learned embroidery in girl scouts, knitting from my grandfather (but that didn't stick), a lot of basics in the only semester I had of home economics, buttonholes, zippers, french seams, etc. I didn't really put it all together until I got out of high school and then the sewing bug really bit. I wanted to sew a skirt and jacket (the flowered kind everyone was wearing in the 60's with a ruffled blouse) so I asked my boyfriend's mother who sewed to help me learn about patterns and she took me shopping at my first fabric shop. I was 18 and bought my first pattern and fabric. I took my prize home and immediately cut out my skirt and jacket and put it together. I was so proud of myself! No help reading the pattern. But I made a blouse right after that and got the sleeves in backwards and on the wrong sides and my girlfriend's mom told me how to tell (reading the arrows to match pieces) and I've never looked back! I made a lot of my own clothes after that and never gave any thought to how difficult a pattern was. I've had so much fun doing it and who doesn't like the ohs and ahs from people when they find out you made it yourself! LOL

Hi Brenda, thanks for making me a friend. I look forward to exchanging ideas and news with you. I enjoy sewing so much, but I don't do much hand work anymore. I just ordered a light with a magnifier on it so maybe that will work. I would love to see examples of the things you make. I plan to get a camera soon and I will share pictures also.
