i can sew

i have been learning how to sew lately. yes, me. sewing. i told my sister susan and she laughed and said "how domestic of you." i don't think she was impressed. i don't care though, i love it. it is so fun. i have finished my very first piece. it is the gratitude wrap from amanda soule's blog. the free pattern is from soulemama. it is in the for you section on the left. just in case you want to make one for yourself. it holds thank you cards, stamps and a small address book. i love it. i gave this one to my sister jen for her birthday. i was so proud. i almost didn't want to give it away. i love it so much. my mother-in-law is letting me borrow her sewing machine to see if i like sewing. thanks mom! i hope she doesn't want it back soon, because i am having too much fun with it. i have already started making a baby blanket and have been gathering fabric for a picnic blanket quilt. hurray for my new hobbie.

Wow, Sherry! I'm so totally impressed! You rock! That is put together very well for a somebody who is just starting to get into sewing. Gosh, is this going to turn into a craft blog?! Amanda of Soulemama is such a cool blogger. Do you have her book - The Creative Family? I really enjoyed it. Glad all is well w/ you guys. Will let you know when the latest little boy gets here!

That's really good looking, Sherry; you appear to be catching on very quickly. My sewing machine should be very happy that it's being used again and I'm glad you're enjoying it. Mom/Granny
