Hello all ~ I know it's been a while...OK a long while since I've blogged! We have had on going computer issues ~ I'm still recovering! Anyway, I wanted to share some fun news...
My apron was chosen by the Where Women Cook team for their launch party next week in NYC! Do you think that Ree or Mary Jane may twirl around cooking in my apron ~ that would be fun to see, I'm huge fans of both. Ree has been a new obsession of mine, this summer I read her Black Heels to Tractor Wheels, a true love story and loved every minute of it! She has been my go to girl for all things yummie lately. Last night I made these sinful goodies ( I can't add a pic because I'm-still-not-there-yet, but soon!) And Mary Jane, I couldn't help but think of her and be inspired this summer as I grew my very first organic veggie garden.
Last year as I flew to Silver Bella I whipped up this apron for the event ~ I think that was the first moment I had to actually sit and get peaceful with a needle and thread in hand. It's made from a vintage petticoat, complete with stains, and I embroidered a "Birds of a Feather" design on it using bits of French fabrics, old lace seam binding and buttons. Jo Packham was the guest speaker at the event and her generous loving spirit and kind words had the whole room in tears! If you have the opportunity to get a hug from her, you will feel blessed ~ she's a very special lady
Here's a very dark pic of me at the Silver Bella Vendor Fair...can you believe it's all I have. I was so torn over sending it, you know how we get attached to things we create (it would not be returned,) but glad I listened to that little voice as I stood in the post office that said send it!
Anyone heading to the launch? I am going to see what I can do to re-work my schedule so I can go! My sweet & amazingly talented friend Tiffany will be photographing the event, one more reason to head to the Big Apple!
So, like food we create for those we love, this post is really about all the generous women who share so much of themselves, and have touched me in so many ways. I'm thrilled that a little piece of me will be shared and I hope that whoever sees it will feel the love that I put into it
Thanks Jo and the Where Women Cook team!
