Now she makes stuff for my kids, including a Halloween costume every year.
This is the first one she made the girls, a fairy costume! We are still getting use of of them!
|This year's costumes|
Years ago when I was in Grad school my Grandma replaced her sewing machine and gave me her old one. I still have it today, and I love it well. I've made a few small/throw quilts (and hopefully one more soon)

I sew from time to time. I really would like to take a class and improve my skills, or at least sew more often.
Recently I was having a rustle around in my craft cupboard, because you never know what you might find. Well I found fabric and a skirt pattern that I bought a couple of summers ago in Michigan. Viola, I thought, I will whip up a skirt for the summer. It said right on the pattern, "One Hour!"
Well, they lied or I am terribly slow. Part of it is time constraints, the kids keep interrupting, dinner needs cooked, you know the drill. But I've finally finished it, and my daughter (she's 5) kindly took a picture for me.
So that's what I've been up to lately. I have a couple of dress patterns that are waiting to be made, wish me luck!
