If you don't know by now, Gertie did an interview with me on her blog, Gertie's New Blog for Better Sewing, today regarding my musings on the plus size sewist. As I reread it now, I could have been a little more succinct *LOL* and obviously from the comments there have been two plus size women who have won contests on PR. Rachelle, who authors the blog, Smoking Needles and Marie Claude, who authors the blog, Blue Lilly's Sewing Page.
I definitely want to point this out, since I adamantly and wrongly said that no plus size woman had won a sewing contest!
Second, I want to thank everyone who left a comment and continued the discussion. It was very interesting and I was especially moved by some of comments left. I also want to thank those of you who sent me email messages, it was great to get your point of view too.
But mostly I want to thank Gertie. Who took a passing comment on my blog, wrote some amazing questions and then let me go full bear ahead. It was a gracious and awesome thing to do. Today I've been humbled, in awe and downright amazed at the wonderousness of the sewing community. I know there were some who didn't agree with my views but I so appreciate the fact that the discussion was held in a very civil tone. However, these are my views and as in all things regarding opinions belong to me alone!
So thank you Gertie! Thank you to my regular readers! And thanks to my friends...and you know who you are!
I'm off to watch Lost...can I just say thank God it's back!!!
...as always more later!
