I grew up watching my momma sew and create all types of crafts and such. Both sides of my family tree are gifted with some kinda artistic minded talent , so I have a natural love of these types of things. I have been a Chandler (better known as candle maker:) and soap maker for years and even started a business over 9 yrs ago with it. There has been scrapbooking, knitting, crocheting, quilt making etc. I love all things "artsy"to be honest. I have had a sewing machine for years and could do the basic stuff, but that was about it.
A few months back the Wilbanks Singers came and parked on our lot for a few weeks and I got to see them "create":) If you know them at all you know that not only are the fantastic Musically, but they are very talented Crafters (and thats for lack of a better word). I was so inspired by their creations ,and sewing that it started the fire under my feet to pick it back myself.We had a blast to say the least.
I learned so much from our time together here, I owe them a gratitude of thanks. I have been in love with sewing again ever since and have really enjoyed using the tips I learned to sew for my little girl. Anyway, thought I would share why I havent been blogging for a while :) LOL
