I love this T!

Having just completed Katherine and Marcy Tilton's Ultimate T shirt class over on Craftsy, I find myself in love with a knit T shirt. And surprised.

I thought that I disliked ITY knit.

I thought that women of my age and shape should not wear ITY knits.

I thought the process of making a T should be quick and dirty.

But I am teachable. I think. I have certainly learned a great deal in this class.

As it happens, if I take my time and try some samples, things go really well. And I end up having fun.

And isn't this a great piece of fabric? It has a little story. I follow the lovely blogger ArtAttack who makes gorgeous clothing. She blogged about a T shirt made with this divine fabric.

Well, I had to have it. No luck ordering online, or over the phone. So ArtAttack, who only knew me from my gushing comments on her blog, drove to her favorite fabric store, bought it and mailed it to me. Such a generous spirit. I blogged about it here but it deserves another thank-you.

So as I prepare to go to my very first DOL with Marcy Tilton and Diane Ericson, I find myself very jazzed about T shirts.
