Before I go any further, I have to thank Zoe for being such a great hostess and sharing her beautiful baby with us! Then words cannot express how kind, supportive, encouraging and just plain 'nice' the international group of ladies were. As a newcomer to sewing garments for myself, I loved to see what others around the world wore each day, 'meeting' new friends, getting to know one another through Flickr as we shared each day of our life during this one month. It was a powerful experience for me.
It was also timeconsuming, though I enjoyed every single minute. Photographs were taken almost everyday, with accompanying posts written in this blog, as well as for the Flickr description. New to Flickr, that was a huge learning curve but by the end of the month had figured out the html to write my links in a more correct way, as well as how Flickr feeds and comments works. It seemed a more informal 'conversation' than a blog, so found it easier to write comments and reach out.
By the end of the month I was in Charleston, SC helping my mother-in-law deal with some health issues, so I missed the last few days of the month. But that's 'okay' and I feel that this entire month was such a positive experience I'd more than accomplished my goals.
I love being a part of such a creative, talented, inspiring sewing community and feel I am ready to expand my sewing skills with more complex garments and continue to sew my own clothes!
