Baby Set for Jones

This is a set I custom made for a friend of a friend. She wanted bright primary colors, I love this blue polka dot print! Jones is the the baby's first name-- it's kinda different and very distinguished!

First Sewing Lesson for Micaela

It's summer and we are staying up late, especially weekends. Micaela has been bugging me to teach her to sew so tonight was her first lesson...

I am teaching her to sew EXACTLY the way my mother taught me, on ruled notebook paper!

I set the machine on turtle speed and let her go... She loves it! She got the hang of it in no time.
Now she wants to use my machine all of the time!

Sewing Room Progress

Here's a picture of my sewing area in our guest room. As you can see the sewing is starting to take over the room, oh well-- we don't have guests that often anyway. The room is a work in progress as you can tell.

The black sewing cabinet is the one I painted this spring. The oak desk was my desk as a teen, I think I got it for my 13th birthday. I found the CD racks at the Habitat for Humanity store and thought they would work well for arranging fat quarters and small quantities of fabric.

More progress to come... Thanks for stopping by.
