Simple Joy of Sewing


For the last 6 months or so, I've been watching my secret stitch club sisters finish apron after apron. I had yet to finish one. But, now, yeah!! My first one. I love it! It wasn't that difficult either. It's lemon fabric and it just makes me smile. I have found a simple joy in doing this and I can't wait to figure out my next project. If you have any suggestions, let me know. I might start a baby blanket next. And by the way mom, I'm loving my machine! It works great. I guess that first fabric was just difficult to work with. :)

I love it Stacey! I've been on a big sewing kick lately too! So far I've been able to finish a patchwork blanket, a hooded towel and am working on (my own patterned) shopping cart cover for a baby. We'll see how it goes. I'm a little nervous to say the least! I NEED to sew that apron though....oh so cute!

I love it! I got a new sewing machine last weekend! I had Mom's old one and I thought I was horrible at sewing, but after I tried out a few at the store, I think it was just the old machine... I can't wait to make something fantastic! The only problem is finding somewhere to keep it that isn't difficult to get in and out, yet keeping it out of the way...

Super cute! It's one of my favorite aprons anyone has made.

It looks so cute! I'm glad you are liking your machine! I signed up for a quilting class!

Too cute, I have yet to finish the one I started along time ago.

I love it. Mom got a new sewing machine. I can't wait to see what fantastic thing she makes for me! The only problem is she needs to find somewhere to keep it that isn't difficult to get in and out, yet keeping it out of the way...

Love, Dad
