Everything Just Sew

Another blog to read. :)

My dear friend, Judy, has finally started a blog and about time too!

Fifteen years ago I met Judy at a 'New Mothers group'. I'd just had my son and had sewn the grand total of two garments for him. Imagine my surprise/horror when this other new mum leaned over and asked if I'd sewn the all-in-one DS was wearing. Of course, what went through my head was "OMG! Does it look that bad?!!!"

One thing led to another, we chatted, babies played and I borrowed an awful lot of Burda Baby magazines. In a very short time I'd been encouraged to well and truly dive into a sewing hobby. In fact, it's amazing my DH talks to Judy, lol, because I certainly didn't have any fabric stash before I met her!

Over the years, Judy has patiently weathered many phone calls asking for sewing advice and tips (and many requests for buttonholes and invisible zips). She has been my sewing teacher, mentor and friend.

Welcome to the world of blogging, Judy!

Aw shucks, you're making me blush! And as I've told you many times, I could only tell you'd made that outfit because the turned back cuff showed sewing machine stitching, not overlocking! :-)

Thanks for the links to Judy's blog and the OW pictures. I had forgotten OW was due out soon. Something to look forward too.
