Sewing Again

When my children were young, I made almost all of the girls clothes and a lot of my boys.  It was something I enjoyed, they enjoyed, and I found it relaxed me and helped reduce my stress!

After they all grew into adults and moved on with their lives I shifted my interest into other areas.  I began working outside of the house for the first time in many years and found my time taken up with other task.  I sold all of my sewing supplies(something I have regretted over and over, at least a thousand times) thinking that part of my life was over. 

I really think that sewing my oldest daughters wedding dress and all but one of her bridesmaid dresses kind of burned me out and it has taken about 18 years for the bee to sting again, but wow has it stung!!

I recently purchased a sewing/embroidery machine and a serger and have fallen in love all over again.  It is even better now because I can take my time and don't have an anxious child asking when it will be ready!  I have really enjoyed sewing for my grandchildren this summer and have enjoyed participating in a couple of Simplicity Sew A longs.

I hope to be able to add more to this blog and make it bigger, better and more tutorial as I go along. 

Thanks for reading and check back soon!  Happy Sewing!
