New use

on Wednesday, October 15, 2008

I bought this vest at the second hand shop for $2.00.
It looked like a teapot cozy to me.

It has been years since I sat at the sewing machine.
It has been years since I designed a piece.
Yesterday I found the teapot that would look perfect with the cozy.

This morning I cleared the kitchen table off.
I had no pattern or instructions; just the cozy in my mind.
I pinned and cut and stitched and broke a needle.
I made a mistake and had to take the stitching out and try again.

I am so pleased.
It looks just like the cozy I had seen when I saw the vest.
I had fun too creating her.
I am back with ideas .
I am ready to make hats and bags.
I have a jacket in my mind and a silk skirt to go with.
I need a dress form. I need to redo the office.
I am ready to create again.
