A Talk On The Porch {at Designs By Sessa}

Hey y’all! Today I’m over at Designs By Sessa, having a chat and going deep about why I started sewing and what it means to me. Read the intro below and then head over to her site for the whole post!


I’m honored to be here today as part of Vanessa’s series. Truly, I wish I was actually on her porch, sipping some tea and talking to this wonderful friend about life, sewing, fabric, children, and goodness knows probably everything else.

I found Vanessa through shorts, oddly enough. Last summer, while she was co-hosting the popular series Shorts On The Line, we struck up an email conversation and ended up fast friends over internet lines. I love this internet world and the friendships I’ve formed, but often I wish we were all a little bit closer to each other!

Since we at least have a virtual porch, and I’m sitting on it here with you, I’d like to give you a little behind-the-scene look at what my creative life is like.  I’m not going to tell you what my favorite fabrics are, or what patterns I’ve been sewing lately, because you can look at my blog for that stuff. What I haven’t shared with my readers before, and am feeling brave enough to share today, is why I started sewing in the first place and how it changed my life.  READ MORE…
