Sewing Lesson

While CJ and I were visiting my parents in Missouri (I know, these MO posts are getting old...last one, I promise), my Mom gave me a sewing lesson. I had already made an apron with my new sewing machine because I just couldn't wait! Well, my Mom set me strait on a few things and I learned how to sew properly. I did know most of it, but there were a few important things that I definitely needed to know.

I didn't finish the project we started. We just ran out of time so I brought it home to finish on my own. And I did it! Okay, it was only part of the hat that I had to finish, but I'm proud of this little project!
And, of course, I had to have CJ show off her little bloomers.
I love having projects to do...even though I sometimes have a hard time finishing them. It is therapeutic to me to work with my hands and make beautiful things. I finished cutting out another pattern today and am planning on pinning the pattern onto the fabric tomorrow. I hope I can do as well when my Mom isn't looking over my shoulder!

Cute! And it helps that you have a beautiful model to show off your handy work!
