Feeling Thick Textures

I love to feel textures – thick ones, thin ones, nubby ones, silky ones – I love to feel them all.  That was one of things I really enjoyed about sewing my own clothes was feeling all the textures as I worked.

I haven’t sown for years, but I still enjoy feeling textures.  I’m very tactile.  I love handling my glass paperweights and wooden bowls.  When I compliment someone at work for a nice sweater, I can’t resist touching their arm and feeling it for myself.  And going through the stores, I like to brush the clothes as I go by the racks to feel the fabrics.

My sister and I both made the dresses we’re wearing in this Christmas picture.  Hers was a linen type fabric, but mine was a thick red velvet with thin lacey sleeves.  I’m not much of a shoe person, but I was thrilled to have those matching red shoes with their big bows.

Have a good weekend!  The weather in central Virginia is sunny and in the 50’s.  I even sat outside in the sun for a short while to read this afternoon as the dogs went wild in the yard.

  1. Those matching shoes are perfect; great sewing! I’m the same way in clothing and fabric stores, always have to feel the fabrics. I need to get back to sewing, maybe I’ll put that on my list of New Year resolutions.

  2. Your mother is beautiful, and your father looks entirely too serious, just like my dad always did in photos… ;)
    You and your sister were great seamstresses too! ~ Lynda
