Well it has been quite a while again since I blogged. So much has happened since that time. My grandson now 5-1/2 months old had major bowel reconstruction was in Children's Hospital for 7 days and then now just has to have follow check-ups every week. He did great and is so cute. Still can't sit on his behind yet. Below my oldest daughter and Mason.
She just got a raise, promotion and such and I ask her if she was excited, and she said she was indifferent…go figure. She has been doing so exciting things. She purchased a new bike this summer. And she went ski diving. Below is some picture.
I have been sewing. I made three skirts from the Colette book with the scalloped edge, and all was too big. I gave them to the thrift shop. I am going to try again to get the fit. How can a skirt be that hard? I made three Butterick dresses – B5602. If I ever get the fit right, I will post picture. I did make several more diaper bags from my favorite pattern – Simplicity 4202 which I have made too many times to count. I am in the process of making for another shower gift. This was the last completed gift. I made diaper bag, boppy, blocks, blanket and shoes. The new mother loved it. See pictures below:
I also sold two of my sewing machines and got two new ones. I purchased a Babylock Smphony and Babylock Imagine. I haven't yet decided if I like them. I had a Janome/Kenmore 19606 which I absolutely loved, but thought I need a bigger better machine. Not sure if that was smart. I had a Brother 1034D which was fantastic and I used all the time. The Imagine replaced this machine. I still haven't decided if I like my new machines or not. I found that the Symphony does not like thick material, so not good for my diaper bags and hand bags. That is what I like to sew, so I might have to pull out my really old Kenmore and use, since I sold my Kenmore/Janome which went thru thick material like a breeze.
Well I think I have caught up on what is going on in my life….so until later.
