We’re almost to the end of the A-Z Challenge!  You still with me?  Drink some coffee, walk around the block, jump up and down a bit to get the blood flowing.

There.  Better?  Thought so.

Today is T for Tailor.  I find sewing a fascinating hobby.  I read once in a Vogue Sewing Book from 1968 (or was it 86? I can’t remember, to be honest) that it’s like sculpting with fabric.  The description stuck with me.

Of course, the word tailor always reminds me of the song, The House of the Rising Sun:

Why am I bringing this up now?  My husband is a photographer and is starting a studio, Wolfshead Photography.  He’s been sewing costumes for his models, anything from Victorian lingerie to full gowns.  I don’t have pictures at the moment, though you can wander through his galleries on the link I gave you.  I just wanted to give a shout-out to those of us who can sew and enjoy it.  We’d look a lot less cool without clothes and we’d sure be a lot more cold.

What craft do you admire, even if you can’t (yet) do it yourself?

  1. Sewing is fun and can save you alot of money. I always wanted to draw and play a musical instrument. Guitar lessons are in my future! It’s never too late to learning something you want to do.

    1. I would love it if you learned guitar! It’s one of my favorite instruments.

  2. I admire photography. Anyone can take a photo, but a good one is more than a push of a button. One day I’ll take the time to actually learn. šŸ™‚

    1. I totally agree. There’s a lot of thought that goes in to that art. I hope you do give yourself the opportunity to play with it; I think you’ll enjoy it!

  3. I totally agree about sewing and sculpting. It’s such a great analogy. I admire the skill to write and play music.

    Best wishes to your husband with his studio.

    1. Thank you, Shelley! I agree. Sculpting with fabric makes so much sense.

      I’ll pass on your best wishes to Michael; he’ll appreciate it!
