I made my first garment at age 11, with some assistance. Like most moms, I sewed clothes for many years. My DH supports my addictions to fabric, quilting, and vintage sewing machines morally and financially. I am lucky to have my own sewing space. I own 3 vintage machines, a 1904 singer treadle, a 1953 featherweight and a recent purchase of a singer clone "Fabric" similar to a class 15-91. I do FM stippling on my treadle and hope the "Fabric" likes FM too.
We have a grown daughter, not married without children. To compensate for grandkids, we have visitation rights to her lovely golden retriever, Hudson. Just like grandkids, a day with him and you are ready to send him home. There is also a feisty cat , Samantha, who ruled the house until Hudson arrived and she was promptly bumped off her throne. It took her 5 years before she would trust him and now they are best friends. I named my blog after her because she needs a little glory spot too. By the way, my name is Jeane.
My interest in colors, designs are really changing and I find I like brighter colors and modern designs vs the more traditional ones. I have never designed anything, but with all the inspiration on this internet, I won't rule out any new challenge.
