My Projects

I've taken on a new hobby. Sewing. I inherited a wonderful sewing machine and was very interested in learning to sew. My friends Karli was excited about this too because she wanted a sewing buddy! She taught me how to sew these cute little bloomers for Mylie, and also a little dress that I don't have a picture of yet.
I was inspired by a couple friends to make a quiet book as well. This has really been a fun project that keeps me busy (as if I'm not busy with Mylie) and gives me something to create and have fun with! Can't wait to finish, but then what?! I'll need another project! Guess I'll have to take on wood carving or pottery or something like that! Or I could get back in to blogging more often again!

Wow! I am so impressed with both the bloomers and the quiet book! Darling! Now you can make some fun Christmas projects, there are so many fun things you can make on your machine that are easy. I love all your camping photos and the pictures of Mylie. She has changed so much just since we saw her in June. Can;t wait to see you guys in a few days!

I LOVE the quiet book! Did you use a pattern? or just make it up? Also, Glenn has FINALLY made a children's CD. So I need to know where to send it to!

Wow! I am impressed. You are going to have to show me how you made that quiet book - it looks adorable.
