I remember as a little girl wearing a yellow and white striped dress that my mom had sewn out of curtains. I must've been about 3 years old and from what my mom told me, I loved it. I soon outgrew wearing dresses - give me jeans, a t-shirt and comfy sandals any day, but I digress.
One of my life's goals is to learn how to really sew. I started back in the day with a good friend and her mom. We met up weekly at the sewing center to make a quilt - never finished. I still have the fabric to prove it. Then we started meeting at her mom's house to make christmas stockings - never finished those either:)
But...that doesn't stop me from dreaming of making aprons, blankets, totes, skirts for the girls and so much more. I'm in love with pattern, color, and fabric from so many designers one of which is Anna Maria Horner. I love her style and her blog. So much goodness in one place.

Anna Maria is coming for the first time to our local sewing and learning center next month and I just can't decide which one of her classes to take. I'm thinking the trunk show since I wouldn't have the first clue in how to operate a real sewing machine, much less understand the lingo:)
This is probably the push I need to make this goal of mine a reality.
