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!

Wow I am on a Roll

Cut out, sewed and finished pajama shorts for my oldest son today in an hour. That is a record for me, considering the interruptions. Made from 1/2 yd or so remnant of race car cotton, simple elastic waist in a basic pant pattern, about a size 3 (he is that skinny at 6), but lengthened some for him. He's happy, I'm happy.

I have other things to work on, but needed a quick finish to get some confidence. I have been thinking about the back wrap dress and like the ideas given, just need some time to finish, but have had Hayley home sick, and not really feeling great myself. Actually, I may remuslin the upper dress with a FBA adjustment and enlarging the sleeve like the previous owner did just to see if that is what is really needed. When I get a moment to actually concentrate...

With small children around, it's amazing that you get a minute to finish anything at all. I rememeber what that was like! I hope you feel better :)
