We had a busy weekend, and I love em' busy!
Some weekend highlights included:
1. Attending the Grand Opening for the New Chick-Fil-A in a neighboring town.
2. Pricing five of my old prom and Color's Days Dresses to sell at a local pageant.
3. Driving to Lake Sequioa for an alone "date" (Woot!)
4. Pampering my parents to a dinner and a movie on us at our house! So fun!
5. My mom giving me her wedding dress this weekend as a sentimental gift. It is gorgeous mom, and I will treausure it always! I love you, girl!
I like to stay on the go, and because my mom does too, we set up a sewing lesson for an afternoon at my house. I would consider myself a card maker,a painter, a scrapper, but not a sewer. It is not due to lack of "want-to", but rather a lack of instruction. I have always longed to sit at the sewing machine and create beautiful garments and curtains. This is probably because I come from a family of sewers. I want my children to be able to watch me hem their little pants- and not have to take them somewhere.
Mom accompanied me to Hancock Fabrics where I bought several yards of fun fabric and 47 burp cloths. I think we got carried away, to say the least! I figure if I use those to practice on, whenever we eventually start a family, I will have plenty of cute ones stored up. I love a good project- especially if it involves a good friend. My mom is definitely a good friend. The older I get, the more she becomes a girlfriend and less of a "mom." I love it! I still go to her for motherly advice, but more often than not, she seeks out my advice and opinions, as well. It is a great feeling to have that relationship with her. I greatly valued her sewing lesson-she was patient and kind. Even when I forgot how to load the bobbin. : )
How much fun are these!
My mom's antique Singer sewing machine. It is a beauty!
Me- sans makeup - heading upstairs to wash all the burp cloths.
Laying it out...
My mom, pinning down the ribbon...
I know, I know... it is nothing fancy or even that great, but it is a start.
And everyone has to start somewhere. : )
