My great-grandmother, known to the family as Granny Maud, was a seamstress or tailoress. She could knit, crochet or sew just about anything, and all in record time. She regularly won prizes at craft fairs. Apparently, she is where my love of making things originates. I owe it to her creative genes.
Me? My name is Carla, and I have nowhere near her skill with needles, thread and yarn … yet. I just love making things: quilted things, knitted things and crocheted things. My first sewing machine was given to me on my tenth birthday. It was an antique, hand-operated Singer, and I still have it, even though it is now almost a hundred years old and I have upgraded to a fancy new Janome.
I started blogging as I have learned from and been inspired by other bloggers’ creativity. It just felt like time to contribute to the flow of ideas. After all, life is about give and take, not just take and take!
Do not expect glamour photography on this blog. I am too busy sewing to have ever taken a photography class, and it shows. At least I have a tripod to help stop movement and blurriness!
