TAKE A WORD
I confess I have always hated sewing with a passion mainly because it requires a preciseness in measurement and cutting I haven't the patience for. So when I saw SEWING was to be our theme at TAKE A WORD I wondered what I would be inspired to create.
And then I thought about pin cushions. In my mind's eye I saw a voodoo doll with pins of all kinds sticking from its little body and knew you would be shocked. What about an old doll then with a fabric body, could I stick pins into that? Even though I had a twinkle in my eye at the thought, I knew you would disapprove. Mmmmmmm. Pale and exhausted and devoid of inspiration suddenly I had a vision .... of a finely toned torso ...... and then the rest was history. Who wouldn't want to own such a pin cushion surely it would inspire even me to sew!
Thank you, Marie.
