Welcome to my Blog!

I have embarked on this adventure, first of all to inspire myself to live a more creative life and secondly to encourage others to do the same. Sewing and everything related, has been part of my life for as long as I can remember even as far back as when I was eight years old and cut about 8 inches off a beautiful white sheet my Mother bought because I thought she wouldn’t notice. What happened as a result is content for a different Blog! Through the years I have met amazing women who have inspired and encouraged me and have become my friends.  Marcy Tilton and Diane Ericson are on the top of my list. My first inspiring adventure was a visit to The Philadelphia Museum Of Art Craft Show. It’s a great mix of Wearable Art, Home Decor, all handmade. My favorites include:
