To my high school home economics teacher Miss Pierce, if you're out there, I owe you many thanks too! You never told me I "couldn't" make something. Even when it was a crazy project like a full length fake fur coat my mom ended up wearing as a bathrobe years later! You never said that's too hard, try something easier, you just smiled and let me muddle my way through, learning valuable lessons along the way.
UPDATE! I was able to draw not one but tow winners. Congratulations to Gail and Anita for winning the It's Sew Easy TV DVD collection! It was a joy to read your stories!!! Please feel free to keep adding to the ones below.
