my mama sewed for me when i was little. jean overalls, clothes for my cabbage patch dolls, footed pajamas. i can remember the sound of crinkling patterns, the smell of the cotton and thread and the hum of her metal kenmore machine.
my obsession with fabric began when i was pregnant with lucas. the discovery of amy butler's nappy bag pattern and the new medium of designer cotton fabrics sent my heart fluttering. the endless online shops that held so many new prints that our local joann's could only dream about. there is nothing more satisfying to me than leaving a quilt shop, clear plastic shopping bag in hand. filled with new freshly folded yards of crisp cotton. i borrowed a sewing machine and got to work.
after this new discovery came the discovery of miss allyson hill and sweet jen of beebee mod. my dearest blogging friends. not only did they inspire me to begin this blogging journey but they inspired me with their well tuned skills and their flourishing etsy shops.
andrey snuck away and bought my first sewing machine girl for me. a christmas gift. he still laughs and shakes his head everytime we sit down for dinner next to my machine. he had no idea that he'd be sharing so much of his wife once she was purchased.
since then my fabric stash has grown to huge and my skills have been finely tuned by my crazy sense of perfection when it comes to stitching a straight line.
so here it is. the shop. the lovely lindsay shop. filled with my favorite fabric finds and sweet gifts i've stitched up just for you. a little hobby to fill my creative canteen and a place for you to purchase my goods. nothin' fancy. just lot's of crafty love.
enjoy, dear friends!
dear danyelle, it's wednesday. midnight on the dot. how did i do?!
