I wore my Renfrew out today on errands. I am fortunate enough to live in a pretty walkable neighborhood and so my husband and I walk to get our groceries each week. Along the way, we have to pass through an over-stocked section of plants that Brian has taken to calling "the jungle". So obviously this picture was necessary:
If I had photoshop I would have added in a dinosaur. Alas.
Also, since it's Mother's Day, I'd like to say thank you to three women who have been incredibly supportive of my sewing endevours.
First up, my Grandmother, who passed away about two weeks ago. She was a wonderful, caring person and a talented sewist. She taught me how to sew when I was about 8, starting with this "crazy quilt" of fabric scraps. Those first lessons stuck with me, and I was able to pick back up more than a decade later. I'm incredibly grateful.
Second, is my mom, who, in addition to being kind, generous and a hell of a lot of fun, has supported every hobby and interest I've ever had. The older I get, the more I appreciate the way she encouraged me to pursue my interests, without judgement, even when they changed monthly. It's thanks to her that I have a set of interchangeable knitting needles and a dress form, because she wanted to me to have the proper tools.
