'Wimmenfolk', now 13 years old - a 6 member pattern of Prim little ladies that I never got around to publishing. Hard to believe these gals have been waiting for me so long. As some of you may know, I used to design patterns for publishers 'back in the day' when Country was king and there weren't nearly as many branches as there are now in the area of folk art. I've watched folkstyle crafts go hither and yon. I've been visiting folk art sites in the blogosphere, being new to the blog world. It's refreshing to see fresh style and such funluvin 'goodies' as well as old techniques taken to new places by new faces.
Personally, I'm just now ready to get back on the horse, so to speak. I spent much time away from the needle and wondered if the old twinkley tingle of inspiration would ever return. I'm not sure what sparked it, but fabric is once again calling. Ideas in stasis are blinking their eyes as if awakened from a deep sleep. I'm so looking forward to getting back in the textile groove. A revelation: you don't have to abandon one creative love for another. Creativity has few rules and being fickle is completely legal. So, I'm off to reinvent myself again. The fabric stores will be a Wonderland for me because everything will be fresh and new. Envy me that. I used to perch on the cutting edge of whatever design trend or wave was nigh. The ranching life took me outside and out of the sewing room. But, Shery Van Winkle is now wide awake!
