Introduction ~ Annika

on March 27 | in Contributors | by | with 3 Comments

From Beth: Annika’s busy with lots of wonderful adventures in writing, parenting and crafting. We were excited she had time to make the lovely Emmeline Apron from Montessori by Hand (and that she told us all about it in her Emmeline Apron Review). Enjoy Annika’s intro below, her Through The Looking Glass blog and her tips and raves in her apron review.

From Annika: I’ve been sewing off and on my whole life. My mom is a weaver and seamstress and I think fiber love must be genetic! (My great-grandmother owned a yarn store many years ago, too.) I knit constantly and sew as often as my assistant (Sammy, who is almost two and likes to turn the wheel on the sewing machine) allows me to. I sew on the simplest Kenmore that Sears had in stock when I needed a machine. I relearned the art of sewing from Amy Karol’s book Bend-the-Rules Sewing, and I tend to leave projects to the last minute.

I’ve been writing professionally for about three years and am currently shopping around a craft book proposal and several screenplays.

I blog about life, parenting, crafts, and being a writer at Through the Looking Glass.

    My sister had me pick out fabric for this apron. She’s making it for me for my birthday in June. She’s waaaayyy too prepared, don’t you think?

    I love aprons! I used to have quite a collection from my Grandma J.,but I actually wore them & have worn many out.I dismantled one of my favorite aprons & have used it as a pattern for many years now.The current one I wear now is a cheerful 30’s print with red rickrack trimming the pockets,made from the old favorite turned pattern. I love this blog!!
