You don’t ask a woman if she’s pregnant unless you’re absolutely sure, right? Similarly, if you work in a hospital and you have a patient who might be wearing a binder that is so huge it’s wrapped around her admittedly small chest, don’t ask her if she’s had a mastectomy unless you are absolutely sure.
I felt like I should start this post off with something thoughtful, which I also find quite amusing in my current drugged-up-on-pain-meds state. Yes, this actually happened to me. I was on morphine at the time and too tired to say anything witty back.
So why am I trying to be thoughtful? This is a crafty blog, after all. Well, I was tagged by Anne Heidi and Denise as a Thinking Blogger. Thanks, ladies! Here I go – blogs that make me think. Let me just add that these are blogs that make me think creatively. And if you’ve been tagged before, I apologize. I am just not able to keep up. All of these ladies have crafty styles that are slightly different than mine. But that’s what I love about them – they force me to think differently which results in creating in new and creative ways.
1. Stardust Shoes. Jojo is my sister and I grew up wishing I had some of her style. Like the way she put patchwork on this bag. It’s so me but I couldn’t have put it together on my own. And while I go crazy trying to think of what else I can make out of fabric, she comes up with cloth shoes. The tutorial is here. Yes, Jojo, you are guilty. Guilty of making others think. :o)
2. Pink Chalk Studio. A fellow pattern designer with a beautiful style all her own, Kathy has taught me to be precise in my sewing. If only I could learn to take pictures like her!
Okay, I know I’m supposed to pick 5, but I’m breaking all the meme rules and stopping at 4. Play along if you’d like girls, or just bask in the knowledge that you’ve won an award. Award picture is here if you’d like to display it.
