SEW Much Fun!!!!


I have a new hobby.  A few weeks ago, I came out of my comfort zone, WAY OUT and decided to learn to sew.  (The last time I even pushed a pedal on a sewing machine was in Jr. High Home Ec., which was a lot of years ago).  So, I took the community class at the high school. Since then, I cannot stop.  I have spent every spare minute sewing something.  I started with pillow cases and PJ pants and then moved on to a ridiculous number of Table Toppers and a Quilt.  It is so much fun.  

I have bothered some of you along the way with silly questions and I'm sure I'll have many more......like when I asked the lady at the fabric store if they sold Warm and Natural by the bolt...which is huge and would cost $500; a fact that I obviously didn't realize.   Not to mention that I would need a truck and trailer to get it home. LOL!!!   She looked at me like I was NUTS.  Anyway, I'm loving it and if anyone wants to get together to sew or swap patterns, let me know.  Now enough blogging, I have to get back to my project.

Wow. I love them both! You're good. Too bad I don't live next door. You can buy warm and natural by the bolt through JoAnns and use their 40% off coupon. I was going to do it when I lived in Holland but decided it wasn't worth shipping!!!

I'm so happy for you! See, having the kids in school isn't all bad. :) If you are doing aprons, count me in! I've been wanting to try those. I even have patterns if you want to look at them. I just haven't had the nerve to do them on my own.
