My first post!!!

Well this is my first post!! After reading many sewing blogs, I decided to jump in and have one of my own. I have been inspired by all the blogs. I am very grateful for all the tutorials that many sewists have shared.

Many blogs have inspired me to increase my stash!!!! Here are some of my most recent purchases.

Above: Three stretch wools that I purchased from (brown, grey, black).

Two knits that will hopefully be a top & a dress.

These are two cotton prints. One is an Amy Butler print. I hope to make skirts with both pieces.

There is a story that goes along with the above prints. The store I purchased them from is going out of business. The store has been opened for 20+ years. I bought all my machines from this store. I also made display garments for it. It was difficult shopping for my last time in the store. There are many memories that are tied to my sewing history from that shop. Well, life goes on.

I will tell you about my "sewing history" next time!
