I love sewing notions, fabric, dress forms, patterns, and so forth. But I cannot sew to save my life. My one goal in the next year is to take a sewing class to learn some basics! It's a shame that I never bothered to learn to sew since my mom and many of her sisters are quilters. Live and learn! Being a non-sewer does not keep me from loving sewing paraphernalia!
I collect pins by the ton, it seems. Nothing says vintage to me like sticking a pin in it! I also used the fabbie G45 papers to make some fabric swatches by trimming around squares and rectangles with pinking shears!
On the inside of the card, I put more swatches and a fun element cut from the paper. I am not much of a "service with a smile" kind of gal, so this saying always makes me giggle a bit. My kids and husband are always in shock when I actually cook something! Since I've been a "domestic goddess" for 18 years, I think it's ok to give up a few of the jobs, right?! Like cooking and dusting? To make more time for paper crafting!
