Can you take one more?

I really admire Claire Kennedy.  She's an amazing sewist, who's sewing artistry I am in awe of, who creates beautiful garments for not only herself but for clients too. She's someone who I want to sew like...so I was even more honored when she asked to interview me for her website, Sewing Artistry.

This is where the title comes in, "Can you take one more?" because here's the link to the interview.  Although, if I may make a suggestion, don't just read the interview (of course I want you to read it...) but read Claire's sewing history too. You will be so glad that you did because it's probably similar to your own.

I am in the sewing cave today but I have three little people and their mother who are visiting for the weekend with the understanding that Nana needs to spend some quality time in her special place.  

So I'm getting a late start, since we had movie night last night...four generations sitting around with a lot of popcorn and sugary drinks...watching Catching Fire. Then some serious cartoon watching this morning...



The baby is with me in the cave while the others are at the jungle gym...I can do some preliminary things...like clean off the sewing table first...



hopefully I will get something finished later this evening...

...as always more later!

  13. I got Russian too trying to follow the link (I read you on Feedly). Then I went to your post from a fresh page in Safari on my iPad. Same thing. Both times, Sewing Artistry started to load in English, then flipped to some odd Russian screen. Finally I opened Sewing Artistry first in Safari and that worked fine.

  18. Hi there Carolyn - we can always take one more! I am so enjoying seeing you getting even more public recognition for your sewing (and general awesomeness) because you totally deserve it. I hope that you get plenty of sewing time in this weekend - and enjoy those gorgeous grandchildren of yours (I still have trouble believing you are old enough to have grandkids...)
