Do you ever get an idea that excites you? Something you wake up thinking about, and it is still on your mind as you go to bed at night?
I had such idea a few months ago. At first it was a series of images running through my head. Images of clothes I have made for my daughter. Images of my daughter picking fabric for the next creation. Images of us going to a park or playground for a photo-shoot. Images of us having fun and growing closer.
Then images formed into an idea. I wanted to make something for Little Monkey and for myself. Something that we both can enjoy. Something we both can participate in creating. Something that will allow us to develop an even stronger relationship. Something that would be a fun thing to do.
Then I got really excited and decided to invite a few super talented ladies to join Little Monkey and I in this adventure. I contacted a few beautiful ladies and asked them if they would like to make something for themselves and their kids that would reflect their individual styles, likes and interests. I felt both humbled and excited when I received positive responses from them.
That is how You & Me sewing series was born. Starting on the 26th of May we are going to celebrate the art of sewing and the art of developing relationships with our children throughout different ages and stages of their lives. We will talk about things that draw us closer together, things that make us feel that we belong together. We will make things that have special meaning for us and our children.

You know what? You don't need to be observing from the sidelines. You are more than welcome to join in the fun. Yes! You can join in! How? Make something for yourself and a special little person in your life, something that you believe fits the purpose and description of the series, blog about it if you have a blog and share your photos in the You & Me Flickr group. On the 16th of June I will do a round up of your creations here on my blog.
I would like to thank Isabella, a very talented young lady, for taking time to draw a picture that captures the essence of the series, and her lovely mum Suz for making the logo. And a huge thanks to my sweetest husband for creating the HTML button.
Let the fun begin!
