We last left off with a visit from my fellow fabric hoarder, my mother-in-law, Diana. Diana organized, packed and delivered stacks of fabric which I now have draped around my sewing area. I'm planning to get busy and find some storage but, for now, the fabric is staying sprawled around the room. I like to fondle it.
Sewing is a contemplative, solo sport which suits me well but every so often I get curious and want to see what others are doing. I've recently joined Meet-Up and - WOW - I've lived in LA my entire life and, while I know there is always a lot going on - Meet-Up is the way to be a part of all the happenings and connect.
From the Meet-Up site, I found a group called "Etsy Mob". All you creative folks probably already know about Etsy but I'm a newcomer. Thanks to D. @ http://www.hellboundheretic.com/ for encouraging me to check out Etsy. I made D's son one of my first futons.
I planning to get together with the Etsy folks at the Urban Creative Center in Santa Monica.
