on the mend

my oldest memory of any form of craft is sewing
at the age of 4 my grandmother gave me a darning needle and wool
and I practiced on a paper plate
it wasn't long before I was making Barbie clothes and learning to embroider
I earned a sewing machine  by babying sitting when I was 12

my friend ludgera is a wonderful quilter and loves taking sewing classes
above , is a present for last years birthday
I just love the fabric and asked for any scraps
 so I could mend my favorite jeans
I wanted to do something a little different so I visited pinterest
and found this whole world of sashiko embroidery
now im looking for more jeans , just to practice this new stitching!!
