I've Been Sewing


I've been trying to make more time for one of my favorite activities.  My mother began teaching me to sew when I was about ten years old.  I would help her when she stretched out yards of fabric on our living room floor to pin and cut out a new blouse or a new dress.  Later, she allowed me to use her scraps and begin making little simple clothes for my dolls.  When I started using her sewing machine, I felt so grown up. 

The image above shows one of the handbags that I have made.  I enjoy making every bag different.  It's time to put some more in my Etsy shop.  I hope you find some time to do something you enjoy this weekend.

  1. Isn't it so fun! My grandma taught me to sew, and I just love it, and for this season in my life, I'm at the sewing machine the majority of my day! :)

    Have a wonderful day enjoying this beautiful spring weather and sunshine!

Hello! I love it when you all talk back!
Your comments have helped me through the hardest time of my life.
Thank you!

I read all the comments I receive. I answer as many as I can.

Right now, I am undergoing radiation treatments, healing from breast cancer surgery on October 20th, and dealing with the side effects of chemotherapy.

I'm having a hard time replying to all the comments. Please understand if I do not answer. This is all new to me.

THANK YOU SO MUCH FOR PRAYING FOR ME!!!
I treasure your prayers and your comments.

If you have a question, or you need a response, be sure I can reach you by email or subscribe to the comments. I will try to answer each question and request. It just may take me some time.

Be blessed!
Laura
