5. What is your favortie sewn item?
Here are the Lovely Anne’s qustions in BOLD and my answers.
1.      Why and when did you start sewing?
My father would buy almost anything that a slaeman brought to our door. We had the Encyclopedia Britannica, and a beautiful Singer 301 with a multitude of attachments. My mother refused to learn to sew. I couldn’t wait to get my hands on fabric and thread an a sewing machine. I was nine when I started, but really go involved in my teen years, and have never stopped. I live to sew!
2.      Why did you start blogging?
 My geek daughter dragged me into the blogosphere. I live in La Paz, baja California Sur, and blogging became my window on the world.
 Blogging about sewing is narcissistic, generous and just plain fun.
3.      What is the garment you have made that has made you feel most satisfied?
There have been many over the years. But most recently I worked one-on-one with Sarah Veblen to perfect a pants pattern. It was arduous, expensivetime consuming, and so satisfying. At the end when I produced a perfectly fitting pair of pants my Beloved said that he felt as if I had cancer, and now there was a cure. He suffered through my saga. But I am so glad I did it.
4.      What has been your biggest disaster?
Pants, pants, pants.
5.     What would be your outfit for attending a university graduation ceremony, as a guest?
Since graduations in the US and Mexico are usually outside in the summer heat, I would wear white. Maybe the white linen pants that I just completed with the 10” of crocheted lace at the hem, and the crocheted lace blouse and a straw hat embellished with seashells.

Thank you again Ann, I am honored!
