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!

Saturday aftermath

Well, the taxes were out on time, we had no power yesterday due to the thunder and lightning, so I have no real progress on Sunday Dress #2, which is pink cotton and pink printed lawn. This was also inspired by the Handmade Dress blog, but is my interpretation as a dress. She used batiste and a Liberty Target scarf for a layered effect on the skirt and top, her indie patterns that are so cute. Mine is from a vintage dress pattern but a narrower gathered skirt. No sewing yet today as the kids are wild. Probably not until Monday at this rate.

I have been considering some future things for the store, may start on some things this week, skirts, maybe an apron or two.

Of course, my sewing ADD may strike and nothing gets done.
