Weekend Sewing


Is it weird to buy sewing books when you don't own a sewing machine? I say, No.

PS - Thank you so much for all your compliments about my flat. A lot of love has gone into putting it together, so your comments mean so much.

no--not weird, it means that you are excited enough to appreciate when you do get a sewing machine!

Erin said...

You crack me up. Actually I crack me up too. We crack me up. I love my Weekend Sewing too.

Martha in California said...

oh my gosh, I think it's time to purchase your first sewing machine. Remember to get one with an automatic button-hole maker, you'll thank me later.
I can't wait to see the things you stitch up. :-)

This picture is one that was only in my dreams--until today! Kara reading a book on sewing? Kara sewing? ERIN sewing? Never even thought that was a possiblity...(Do not, I repeat, do not buy a sewing machine without consulting with me--please!)

I have a rather comprehensive book about making cloth dolls and made one that never got past the faceless nudie stage.

A sewing book without a machine. Nope, not weird.

One sewing machine, no waiting! A 10 minute drive is all it would take . . . and borrowing rights, of course!

Juli said...

Oh what a great picture!

And no, it's not weird at all. But, seriously, you need a sewing machine!! Get yourself an early Easter present! Or a St. Patties' Day present!

Although I'm not sewing much these days, (arthritis) I thought I would pass this along to those of you who may need supplies.

I've bought from them before and I was always satisfied with their service:

Ok- you so need a sewing machine! You are too talented not to have one. And your home is so beautiful and eclectic from all your travels. I love it! I love your queen pillow and your bird house and all your furniture.

Oh, great book! Enjoy it.
Your apartment is darling. I love the wall of art that you are sitting in front of.

I think this is the book that Meghan just told me he wanted...made me feel good to know that I'd heard of it! Don't you have a birthday coming up...I'd ask for a sewing machine...hint, hint Di and Don!

I predict you will not be sewing machine-less for long! How are the patterns in the book? The dresses looked really cute...
