Four by Four


Jenners over at Life with Books did this meme yesterday and suggested it to all of us who are stumped with posting ideas.  I kinda like it because we get to know a bit about each other that might not come up otherwise.

Four by Four: if you dare?

Four Jobs I’ve had in my life.

Sales assoiciate in Fabricland. Made a lot of clothes those few years, worked really hard.
Night school Instructor for sewing. It seems a lot of ladies got machines and had no idea how to sew. So I showed them some basics.
Dressmaker/ in my own business. Good times, not too much money.
Patterndrafter/designer children’s wear, Hugs and Kisses Line. hated getting up so early and coming home late, the industry starts at 7a.m. and I lived way out of town, took me hours to get to work. hated my boss.

I love that you gave me my very own set of answers in your comment on my blog. It is a cool little meme and a great way to get to know somebody. Like I never knew you were "sew" talented.
