Everything From Rolled Hems to Toothpicks!
I sure have been missing the lake this week. I guess all the wonderful memories of Buddy reminded me how much I loved living at the lake. I don't miss it much during the winter months, but when spring is here, I long to be back there, riding on the pontoon boat and enjoying all the activities that come with living on the water! Maybe one day I will retire to the beach, that is my dream retirement!
This has been a week of reflection and I really have not done very much other than reflect. LOL I did get around to making a table runner for my daughter and hemmed it using the rolled hem stitch on my serger. It turned out great! It was the first time I used it on this serger and I was amazed at how easy it was to do. I will be using it a lot more often!
My niece is learning how to sew, and she is doing a great job! She recently made some curtains for her home and some throw pillows( without any patterns I might add!). She sent me photos and I am very proud of her. She has never sewn before ( well except for altering my sister's old prom dress that she wore for Halloween you can see it here). I offered to have her come up so I could help her but she said "it is all strait seams Aunt Glo, I think I can do it", and she did do it and very well. I have to say that I did get a little tickled tho, I told her about getting needles for the sewing machine she borrowed and a few other little tidbits, but didn't even think to tell her to get strait pins, she was sewing burlap and used toothpicks instead. ( she lives in a log house and it is very rustic so the burlap looks great!) What a Genius! Love you Brandy and I am so proud of you!
I am on spring break this week and I hope to get a lot done! Friday I get to go with my daughter- in- law and see the 3D or 4D( not real sure which one it is) ultra sound of baby Harper. I have never had that opportunity before, always just saw the photos ( ultra sounds have come a long way since I was expecting!). I am so excited! Hope you all have a wonderful week. And oh by the way...Happy April!
