About Me

My photo
I am a Homemaker and Freight Broker (with my husband) who has a love of needle crafts, sewing, crochet, cross-stitch. I learned to sew in 2007, really love using vintage patterns (1940's, 50's, 60's) & and seeing how I can modernize them with fabric choices and trims). I need 25 hours in a day to get to everything I want to do!

Sunday sewing on the dresses

I am now at this stage:

Baby's dress is "put together", sleeves have elastic, needs the ribbon sash sew down, closig the lining at the waist, back closure, hem and diaper cover needs elastic.

Oldest's dress is being basted together at the waist/bodice juncture, needs elastic on sleeves, waist ribbon sash, closing the lining at the waist, back closure, hems.

Do we think we can do it by Wednesday?

I do, it is mostly hand sewing at this point, the kids are cooperating better today than yesterday. Yesterday was BAD! Today the weather cooled off, the house is cool, so they are clustered in the den watching tv and playing. The little one is napping. Bean soup is on the stove, cooking. We will be having soup, biscuits and who knows what else.

More later or tomorrow.

You can do it...I work better under pressure but don't like to work under pressure.
