It's been a long time since I've had any dreams. I wanted to be a teacher when I was young. Somewhere I went awry. Thanks for the giveaway.

I have taken dance including ballet or tap from the age of 4. While I will never be a ballerina, I have had a lot of fun with it over the years.

Such pretty fabric! I was a figure skater in my younger days... that is close to being a ballerina I think!! But seriously, I literally still dream about skating and performing... however, I am sure that I would really hurt myself if I attempted those jumps (hehehe). Thanks for the chance!

Rosa said...

Jan said...

One of my daughters was a ballerina, too. Thanks for the give away.

ritainalaska said...

I did dream of becoming a ballerina. Today my dream/goal is to be a fabulous seamstress. Right now I can only do the basics. Hopefully soon, I cam make beautiful dresses for my girlies.

Karsyn is such a sweetie pie, glad you gave her the outfit. I dreamed of being a singer but I couldn't carry a tune if my life depended on it. Beautiful fabric, thanks for the chance.

Love this fabric! Stunning!

Barb said...

I was too much of a tomboy to dream of being a ballerina. However, I did have a circle skirt and a pleated skirt when I was about 9 yrs old that I loved to twirl around in.

Sandy D said...

This fabric looks so Elegant I love it. No I never had the opportunity to take ballet but one of our four daughters took ballet lessons.

Erin Quinn said...

Not only did I dream of one day being a ballerina, I did classes, read books and owned a proper tutu, I also choreographed my own ballet of the ugly duckling and performed it for family one year (and, horrors, my mother still has a video of it.)

Heather A said...

Oh, yes, I did indeed want to be a ballerina when I grew up. I lived in a rural area and it was my good fortune that the new school principal's wife taught various forms of dance, gymnastics and baton. I took classes in everything for the two years she was there but ballet was my favourite. My Mom made me a beautiful satin and toile tutu and matching satin ballet slippers. Le sigh! It was dreamy. And no, I did not grow up to be a ballerina. I'm a librarian who loves to go to see the professional ballet companies when they perform here.

Anita said...

My granddaughter would love to be a prima ballerina! Thanks for the giveaway...Verna's fabric is lovely!

Judy1522 said...

Beautiful fabric! I never really wanted to be a ballerina although I do remember trying to stand on my toes. What I wanted to do was be a tap dancer and I did eventually take a class in college which was a lot of fun.

Emma said...

I did ballet for years myself. However I dreamed of being an archaeologist! I studied it in college but went in a different direction after my children arrived.

SewSuzie said...

When I was young I wanted to take ballet lessons but grew up in the middle of the country where there were no teachers. I still dream of doing things - it is what keeps us young

andri. said...

Gorgeous fabrics:)

Jess said...

Bizarrely, I dreamed of working in Antarctica... Never happened! My new dream is to someday get a long arm quilting machine :o)

JoyceLM said...

Love the fabric - the little ballerina is so cute. I loved books & reading at an early age & wanted to be a librarian. I studied & worked hard & became one. Thanks for the chance to win.

KatheG said...

A ballerina - no. I wasn't built that way but I was a great tomboy. However, dance in general was my dream - loved to dance! Do I still dream? You bet I do and hope I never stop. I would love to have this beautiful fabric to dream about. Thanks.

Dana Gaffney said...

I never wanted to be a ballerina, as for dreaming, I'm still going strong so no, all of my dreams haven't come true, yet.

Gill said...

I never dreamed of being a ballerina but my daughter did!
These days my dreams are more realistic!!

Rebeckah Austin said...

I did dream of becoming a ballerina. Unfortionatly my family did not have much money growing up so I was not able to take any dance classes untill I was 17, taking college classes. Since then I have taked Ballet, Jazz, Hip-hop, ballroom, a little tap (almost not worth mentioning), and contemporary. Though I have not danced in over a year since I got married and moved away. I still dare to dream and I am waiting for the day when I can buy my first pain of points :)

Marcia W. said...

A ballerina, yes, also an Olympic horsewoman, Pulitzer author, Nobel prize physicist, architect, pianist, model, fashion designer, oil painter, wife/mother, ... none of these dreams came true and I am happy.

jaybee said...

Great to have a dream. Mine is to own some of that gorgeous fabric. Just so beautiful

jaybee said...

hiyacinth said...

From the ages 6-12 I was a ballerina, and I still love the gear--black slippers, black leotards--but no tutus--I never did like the scratchy tutus.

These fabrics are so lovely!

This Dog's Mom said...

I have a little granddaughter who wants to be a ballerina. I dream of being around long enough to see her achieve her dreams.

Love the color palette and Free Spirit fabrics. Dreaming is what keeps us trying to achieve more.
