losing my cherry …

at the annual SEWING EXPO in Puyallup!2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7141

I found many wondrous goodies at the annual sewing expo in Washington Friday …. even some juicy CHERRY PIE fabric!2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7134

My good friend Satira was a trooper and drove us 3 hours in each direction to get us to the expo.  I am sure she slept in yesterday to make up for the lost energy after a long day. What a trooper!

Being a mixed media Artist and having never been to a sewing expo, I was not quite sure what to expect and if it would be worth the long trek. It was!  Not all booths grabbed my fancy, but the ones that did…. Oh My!

Some good ones that caught my eye were:

I would now LOVE to figure out how to get my art into embroidery programs like Loralie has done. What a great idea!

If I had had the extra money and no country borders to cross going home, I could have easily spent a few hundred $ there and hired a ‘bag boy’…lol.

We may have laughed earlier upon seeing the foot massage chairs at 9:30 in the am, but boy did they ever feel nice at 5:30pm! 2014-02-28-sewing-expo-IMG_2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7137  2014-02-28-sewing-expo-7143

Where’s the THREAD?!

2013-10-12-IMG_6648 2013-10-12-IMG_6649 2013-10-12-IMG_6650Well, I did it!  I cut apart one of my hand painted denim jackets… and it actually felt good. For a few hours over the past two days I have been working on this new Messenger bag, only to realize that while I thought I was closing in on the finish line late last night (watching SNL) …. and was SEW in the zone of creation, that I did not realize I was trying to sew without thread.  UGH, what a time to run out. My large spool of thread was completely bare and all that was staring back at me was the very white plastic spool.

I guess I will be visiting the local Walz-mart today since the fabric store in White Rock is closed on a Sunday.

Happy Thanksgiving to all my Canadian friends & family!
