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!

Almost Tax Day

Yes, I finally bought my Turbo Tax basic today, have the numbers about ready to plug in and review the damage. I *detest* tax time. I am not going to get further into it, then I would be getting into politics, which I rarely do here.

That is why I choose to sew, quilt, etc. I need a creative outlet for the stress, vent to you guys and girls about life, somewhat. I don't buy clothes very often for us, just what I am not willing to make. I make tops, PJ's, skirts, dresses, things to sell, refashion, whatever I get time to do.

Now, on a happier note, while buying aforesaid Turbo Tax, I also picked up two Simplicity "simple" patterns from the $2 racks at WalMart plus some $2/yd knits. They weren't bad. One is red with black and the other brown with cream and pink polka dots. I also got a yard of green gingham, two button cards, red thread. I have also ordered a used copy from alibris on ebay the Coffin Shirtmaking book. I am trying my hand at shirts for Mike this summer.
