What Inspired Me To Create Inspired Creations By D


Inspired Creations By D

FRAME or QUILT - FABRIC WALL ART

Inspired by my mother who when we were growing up sewed a lot of her 5 children's clothing as well as her own. She was quite the seamstress; usually following "Vogue" patterns for her clothing; making my sisters wedding gown, my maid of honor gown not only for my sisters wedding but my two friends weddings. Oh, and let's not forget the bridesmaids gowns for the same. Plus, she sewed the wedding gown for my sister-in-laws wedding as well as her own mother-of-the-groom dress. In her later years she enjoyed quilting and pillow making along with many other crafts.

Inspired by my sister who has ALWAYS loved sewing and craft making.  I still have the quilt she made me when I was just a young girl many, many years ago, as well as a huge selection of dolls she has made then given me. I guess I should also mention that my sister is Linda of Linda Walsh Originals.

Inspired by a 1929 Singer Sewing Machine model #101 given to me by a dear friend, George, who when his wife passed away, wanted a fellow seamstress to have the machine. It is the best machine I have ever sewn on. I still use it to this day.

Inspired most recently by "Marty" a woman who I had never met but when her widowed husband joined our family in 2010, and when he showed me the quilts she had made for many years, the "sewing" bug which had sat dormant in me for quite a few years was reignited.

Inspired by my LOVE of flowers, nature and the great outdoors and all it has to offer. That, coupled with all the above, is the ultimate inspiration for my collection.

I hope you can become as inspired as I. Enjoy.
