Follow along as I sew what I wear, cook and garden.

I got an e mail this morning from my cousin's photo gallery, Alan Klotz Gallery about a current show, entitled Thirty Dresses by JoAnna Johnson. She sewed by hand (I assume a sewing machine here) thirty black or white dresses and then photographed them in various landscapes. I love the pictures and thought I 'd share them with you. If you are in NYC you should take a look. He's in Chelsea, not all that far from our garment district favorites.
Have a great 4th of July everyone. We are doing our celebrating tonight, it's my birthday and anniversary (kind of poor planning on my part) and then I have a lunch date tomorrow with my bff for our annual birthday lunch. The rest of the weekend I plan on sewing. I have my jacket to finish: the cuffs are half sewn on, topstitching and buttons and I'll be done. Finally. Then I have at least 2 tops that I have cut out to sew. Happy sewing.
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, mostly self taught. I sew for myself, with some some occasional sewing for my daughter. I love garment sewing and will only sew home dec if desperate. I love to cook and read and try to avoid cleaning as much as possible.
