Welcome to the Sewing Room!

Ok, people, I am not a seamstress, but I play one on T.V.  What does this mean, you ask?  I do have some training, but almost everything I know and almost every project I come up with comes from trial and error, experience, and creativity.  I stink at measurements, so if you are looking for detailed instructions to the 1/8 of an inch, you are in the wrong sewing room!  My thought process behind everything I sew is that if you can sew a straight line, then you can sew my projects.  Simple, creative, beautiful and fun.  I insist you give one a try.
