I can sew!!!

My mom just came for her first visit in ages. (Hard to have visitors when the guest room still have live-in family!) She brought belated Christmas and birthday presents. For me she brought a sewing machine. I can not tell you how amazing this is. I have been wanting one for ages. I know it is high on every list but really we never had room before and then it always seemed like we had other things to buy and then family moved in and finances got tight. My husbands older sister was here as well and she is a sewing guru and we found this great pattern for pillow case dresses. (My mom had mentioned them) We opened that box and made that gorgeous thing sing. I love it!!!! What do you think?


  1. Looks a lot better than when I tried teaching my
    Tae Kwon Do instructor how to sew. He had trouble when he had to switch the controls from zig-zag to straight stitch. It was an ancient Pfaff.

    Best of luck in your sewing adventures.


We love comments! We are happy to answer questions, join in debate and conversation, or just say hi. All we ask is for respect. Respect us and others. Keep it civil. Obviously we aren't afraid of cussing but we don't like anyone degraded or invalidated.

We also know we make mistakes. Feel free to call us out. You can't improve things that need it if you aren't aware of it.

If you have an opinion share it but know if it is going to cause hurt to someone we care about we will not approve it.

Most of all have fun!!
