|Lesson I learned recently: You can never have too much bacon jam for noshing!|
Now as an adult I try to learn new things, how to cook buttermilk biscuits and the easiest way to make a gusset in a purse I am sewing. I am no longer working within a school year so this learning occurs year-round; but somehow this summer I am once again diving headfirst into learning a few new tricks.
The first one is a Summer Dress E-Course offered by Whiptstich . Now through September I will be spending quite a bit of time behind my sewing machine praying to God I do not end up channeling my inner Denise Huxtable while trying to sew these three cute dresses. Gordon Gartrelle is not what I am going for here. (If you are drawing a blank on what in the world I am talking about watch this clip.)
The second opportunity to open my mind to knowledge will by sitting in a room with the beautifully blunt Hollis Gillespie once again. I have been wanting to gather up all of the pieces of my patchy blog/website and this will be the first step in making that dream a reality. The blogging workshops are known for sending all of their participants in the right direction and if it is anything like the writing workshop I took last month, I know I will be more than pleased.
Stay tuned for pictures of my (fingers crossed) dresses and a newer look to my website.
Let the learning begin!
