HAPPY MOTHER'S DAY...

...

THANK YOU MOM!

Now for sewing updates:
This weekend's make - another Simplicity 1916 view F for my daughter. Fabric has been stashed for eons, jersey knit from where I can't remember.  Nice print, but for some reason the dickens to sew.  Changed needles several times and eventually had to change machines because the stitches kept skipping.  Awful, but I refused to throw in the towel on this one and was finally able to get it finished.

Have a Happy Mother's Day!!!

  4. Happy Mother's day, Faye! Your "pink" words at the top really resonated with me. It definitely was my mom's philosophy and hopefully I have passed it on to my own daughters.

    1. Thank you Bunny. I'm sure passing that philosophy on to your daughters has made a really big difference in their lives.

  5. I've had a couple of pieces like that drives you nuts! And there's really no way to tell when you buy it. Looks great now, though!
