Kreativ Blogger Award – My Very First Award
I was nominated for this award by Faye and I am just blown away. I’m also blown away by the fact that “The one and only Erica B” is now following my humble little blog. She and all the other blogger’s have been a huge inspiration to my sewing and creativity. Part of the award is that I have to nominate 7 other bloggers, that’s the hard part but here goes:
Erica B – How could I not, her stuff is baaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaaad
Adrienne – I can always depend on her for a laugh and her endless list of talents. (Painting?whoa)
Sheila – Another woman of many talents, she sews, crochets and knits and has given me personal help on a project.
Lesa - I love her recon’s, crocheted items and her self drafted patterns are always amazing
Andrea – She’s my learn to knit motivator
Cidell – I love her blog, I like the everythingness of it (I know that’s not a word)
JC – a newbie how exciting to watch the process of someone new to sewing.
I was going to nominate Carolyn but somebody beat me to it, she’s very detailed and I love her pics.
I was going to post a complaint because people were giving me grief at work today because I don’t sew for other people, one lady said that was very selfish and I said yes it was; I use to sew for people years ago went my children were small and it was nothing but grief and hardship with a few rare exceptions. People were horrible and treated me like I was some type of lowly servant and I hate to say this but church people were the worse. Now if I have the time after working two jobs I sew for me only (except at Christmas). And I refuse to do alterations with the exception of my family because people always want you to do the impossible and then they’re never pleased. People that don’t sew can’t appreciate what goes into garment construction. They want Saks Fifth Ave. construction at K-Mart prices. Well there’s my rant but the award did wonders for improving my mood.
This is what’s on the sewing table for tomorrow. I’m using a black and white flannel, the pattern doesn’t call for lining but I’m going to line it. It’s a caplet so the underside is going to show, I think it needs to be lined. It’s McCalls 5764. I really need to start doing pattern reviews; I started one but it felt like work so I didn’t finish it but I think they’re helpful so I’ll give it another try.
I was flattered that my friends step-daughter wants me to help her make a halter dress, that should be fun. I wish my own DD would show an interest, well maybe one day.
I really appreciate the award and all your kind comments on my projects. Sewing Bloggers Rock!
