I have a little theory.
If we really look at who we were when we were young
we will find the same person we are today!
Stitching has been part of my "Fabric" (excuse the pun) for as long as I can remember.
I don't know the actual date I first held a needle, but I think the grooves and calluses
in my fingers began that very day.
I do remember a crudely stitched bear . . . just 2 pieces of furry fabric,
stitched with a child's hand around the edges over a pipe cleaner armature.
Hmmm . . . I made a bear, and today I still do!
Enjoy my little stroll down my memory lane . . .
My first "real" craft show ~ "The Gambier Craft Show".
(Held ... and STILL held in Gambier, Ohio home of Kenyon College ~ where I grew up!)
I am guessing that I was about 14-15 at the time this photo was taken.
Be who you were meant to be!
