Sisterfriend Gift

This is hubby and me on our way to our anniversary dinner. I will be using this dress pattern many times. It is very comfortable and I love the way it looks. Sometime before the end of this month I hope to retake picture of the completed sewing projects for the month. I really want to give you a close up on the fabric of this dress it is beautiful. I have a friend who has been apart of my life for over 30 years. She is like a big sister to me. You know the kind of friend that is around so much that everyone just assumes she is a sister and you feel that she is a sister so why correct them. That is her! She is very private so I will call her sisterfriend. She recently had to return home because her mom died. She wrote a beautiful letter to be added to the funeral cermony as tribute to her relationship with her mon and dad. She invited me to come to her family home because her mother was an accomplished seamstress. She showed me her mom sewing room and told me everything in this room belongs to me! I was pleased and honored! This dress was made from one of the fabrics that I received from her. I have deceided to change my sewing room and move it into the game room where the lighting is much better. I can sew while listening to the tv and interacting with the rest of the family. It should be much better. That is the project for the end of this month. My sisterfriend's gift is my inspiration for this change. I must use her gift wisely and I fear that it will just sit if I do not make changes to my current sewing room location. In other news... Betty and I will be working on baby blanket made from her little boy clothes. He is so cute and growing so beautifully. They have a beautiful family. One of the little designers school project is to put on a fashion show for spring. So exciting to get started on that! Starting in January I will start taking some artist workshop classes. Because it is something that I always wanted to do and never did. Hugs!

S Sew Together Session  May 27, 28!
It's great when you are with friends of like mind who love the same things you do.  Well this weekend time to capitalize on that idea.
Time to Sew Together!!
I sent out the invites actually it was a series of text and phone calls and created a buzz for myself that is very uplifting!  I am so excited. 
The way I have envision this;  everyone will come over about 6 to 7 people and bring what ever project they are working on and sew in the same room together.  I just love this idea!   
JN is going to make a apron for her make up job.  She was asked to do the make for the  brothers who will be on screen at our Regional Convention!  I am so happy for her.   AA will be making curtains she is getting things ready  for her redecorating month. She said for us not to look for her in June because that is the time she set aside to redecorate her house and curtains are a big part of it.

S Sew Together!!Good day!  How was your weekend?  I had a wonderful weekend the sewing event was a beautiful success! 


The Sewing Machine were in place and supplies are available just waiting for the people to arrive. 

I am very happy to have ventured out of my comfort zone it was very empowering to accomplish this!  

Our Mentors were working on sewing project while helping others ! 


Some who are learning were happy and frustrated.  Lining the top of the dress can be a challenge but she conquered it! 

I cannot wait to see the finish projects of all those who took advantage of the event to start a project.  

First time at a sewing machine and so eager to see the finish result!  


It was so happy that all enjoyed themselves.  I look forward to seeing the finish items.  I have appointments with some for one on one training and mentoring and the excitement is infectious.  I was very happy with the small event  I look forward to doing this again.

Life in a Scheduling Room

It has been some time since I felt it necessary to say anything about my job.  However this is something that i need to address at this time.  My work associates range in ages and this diversity helps our department funtion in an ackward yet somewhat effective way.  One coworker who is very verbal about everything that goes wrong.  You know when she is not well because she is quiet and there are times when she is very focus on what she is doing and if that concentration is broken so is her silence.  For the most part this does not bother me except when she takes me out of my zone and then my work rhythm is interrupted.   I am sure i am guilty of doing the same to her i think everyone does.  Then there is next coworker a beautiful young lady that gives the impression of being younger than she actually is and so I have a tendency to feel like  need  to protect her.  That is something I had to stop doing it was not needed and i hope I did not offend her.  Her method working is not as pr…
