Hi. I'm Tricia. I am the mother of two little boys, Clark and Miles. They bring me lots of joy, and a little bit of stress and frustration as well. As a way to stay sane, and maintain some sense of identity, I sew.
I learned some basic sewing techniques from my mom as a little girl, but didn't start sewing until my first son was born. I never thought I'd make clothing for my family, but I do it all the time now.
When I got married my mom wanted to buy me a sewing machine as a wedding gift, I told her I'd prefer a vacuum-what was I thinking? I probably use my sewing machine more frequently than my vacuum...sad, but true.
I've always loved to create, it's just part of who I am. I studied illustration in college, and feel that my experience in art really influences the way that I sew. Understanding design basics and color theory are key to any successful project. Aside from sewing I really love book binding, painting, cooking, and one day I'll enjoy woodworking...I just know it.
Although I don't have any formal training in sewing/design, I'll share what I learn with you. Feel free to ask me any questions that you might have. I'd love to learn together.
I have Celiac Disease, and eat gluten free-Woot Woot!
I'm a Mormon.
I can't roller skate.
Peanut butter and cinnamon bears are two of my favorite things.
I'm almost guaranteed to like anything with butter and sugar in it, it's a heavenly combination.
I can't sing.
I'm an Idaho girl.
I speak Spanish, but not perfectly.
I took my husband on his first date.
Our second date was seven years after our first.
I've been married for nearly five years.
I have ridiculously scrawny arms, but still think that I can beat you in arm wrestling...bring it on.
I'm quite shy, and writing about myself is less than enjoyable, so I'm done.
|My two boys.|
