between Victoria, British Columbia, and Edinburgh, Scotland … and why am I telling you this? Well today I started as this week’s “Fashion Superstar” over on CUT OUT + KEEP!
CUT OUT + KEEP is an Edinburgh based craft community I would like to introduce to you.
But let me start from the beginning …
A few months ago, well the end of February to be exact, a very patient Cat Morley asked me if I was interested in being a “Fashion Superstar” on her craft community CUT OUT + KEEP. Well of course I am!
Then life interfered (sigh!) and a very patient Cat Morley asked me again. Again, I replied “Of course I am still interested!”
So while I was in Mexico, lying poolside in the sun, I planned and organized and wrote and rewrote and reviewed and came up with seven project posts for CUT OUT + KEEP. I’m featured this week, so head on over and take a peek here! Check out some of the other crafters too! I don’t think I have ever seen a site that has so much variety, everything from desserts to slinky cabaret dresses (those two probably don’t go together so well) but CUT OUT + KEEP has it all!
So why was I thinking about 4,442 miles?
Well, funniest thing, I got a reply to my CUT OUT + KEEP tweet from Linda of @remakeremodelrecycle (an excellent talent and teacher, an inspiration). Let me quote her:
“Congrats! That’s so funny, you live far far away and this is based in Edinburgh, where I am and through you I’ve just discovered them???”
That’s right. 4,442 miles away Cat Morley of CUT OUT + KEEP finds me, I post and tweet, and Linda of @remakeremodelrecycle notices my tweet and finds CUT OUT + KEEP right next door. 4,442 miles here and back again in seconds! It is a small world.
By the way Cat and Linda – Edinburgh looks beautiful, full of history and culture – I would love to visit someday and see the Edinburgh Castle! I do have holidays coming up starting the 1st of July, but I am only going to get as far as the Calgary Stampede (664 miles). It’s going to be a blast! Who knows, I might even see some sewing or sewing machines I can share with you! But as usual, you keep posting and I will keep reading!
Now back to my hand sewing so I can finish off my next project. You can tell I am at the hand sewing stage because Sophie has taken over my sewing table.
