Linda in AZ * said...

* What fun, & MAYBE "perfect timing", I*F I were to win!

I spent almost TWO HOURS just looking at/learning about sewing machines today, as I am tired of paying a pro to do "the easy stuff" (like "straight" sewing, hems, etc), just cuz my machine broke a gazillion years ago & I threw it away after so long!

And WOW! Have today's machines "come a lonnng way, baby!"...... I'll STILL need a pro for monogramming (unless I get "THAT" machine) but boy! Was I INCREDIBLY & PLEASANTLY SURPRIZED at what today's machines can DO!!! (And I've got PLENTY of ideas for use of this fab fabric!)...

"Congrats" (?) on your first "giveaway"... and thank you for letting me enter!

Warmest,
Linda in AZ *

Vintage homespun linen is the best. The differences in the weave, the texture, colour is so much nicer than the perfect linen you find today. Nothing beats it!
