The red folder is back! This time in my sister’s travel journal. I diligently applied my guerrilla sewing tactics and cobbled together a sturdy book into which smooth vacation thoughts can be written. You darling people that have decided to take the leap into STITCHED & STENCILED…know this: I am NO seamstress. Which is why THIS is my machine.
If, for example, I had to sew up a brand new polyster pant suit. Nope. Wouldn’t happen. Somewhere deep in the sewing brain there are thoughts on how to do this. Flowcharts, diagrams, that sort of thing. But over the years they’ve been replaced. You know. With guerrilla methods.
More messy spraying into the leftover-paint-experimental-calendar- stencily book.
Drinking iced tea. Immersing myself deeply in rigorous leisure. I haven’t had a summer off in years.
