I first met Cindy a year and a half ago at the Pattern Review weekend in LA. I hung out with her again at the Portland PR weekend earlier this year, and she visited me in Seattle this past weekend for a sewcation. She got a lot of work done on a trench jacket that is going to be a-maz-ing. Me? I was pretty much in the project planning phase for the majority of her visit.
If Cindy ever asks to come visit you, say yes. She is the best houseguest. The icing on the cake was when I came home from work on Friday, she was already cooking dinner! She could teach my husband a thing or two.
Conveniently, my local fabric shop, Nancy's Sewing Basket, was having their once-a-year 30% off fabric sale the weekend of Cindy's visit. We went twice, poring over every bolt of fabric and button. We were so absorbed, we forgot to take pictures both times! Several nice things came home with us after each visit, naturally...
Among other things, we both got cuts of Carolina Herrera fabric - Cindy got an amazing navy cotton/silk shirting, and I, two coatings (I'm cutting into one above).
It was a wonderful, relaxed long weekend, with lots of great food (Cindy is a great cook!) and conversation - we talked sewing, we talked life. Cindy, you are welcome back anytime!
