Before the knitting and the spinning and all the yarn dyeing, there was sewing. I had at one time a fabric and notions stash that would have taken ten years to finish. I know that because I gave it to my sister and it took her a decade to get through it.
I regret doing that, but my generous nature led me to feel sorry for her because she always knew how to play me. I am slowly building up my stash again, it's going to take time but I am in no rush. This time I intend to use it all myself.
