Things I like to make are notoriously simple. In fact, I really think that sometimes they almost don’t qualify as making at all. But I do love the time I spend taking a collection of things (usually beautiful fabric or paper) and making something “new.” Don’t get me wrong… I haven’t invented anything, or made any discoveries, but still – a heap of fabric, some thread, and a few hours and voila! A ______.
When I make anything, function is necessary (why waste the time otherwise). Aesthetic is ideal. Enjoyable to put together – always. Armed with a sewing machine, my favorite shears (praise Gingher), a cup of luke warm tea, and a sunny window, I blasted through four projects in just a few hours!
Though I don’t feel any of what I make is particularly amazing. I love to make – and make I will continue to do.
