background

This is nothing special, well to you anyway. I'm not a scrapbook type, or a baby book writer, or even a picture printer. I'm terrible at recording memories. This blog is my attempt at holding on to some of my life as a Christian, a wife, and a homeschooling Mom of 5. I am a country girl that lived in a big city for 14 years, and moved to the Deep South for quiet, quaint, small town living.

Life skills

I was excited to teach Livia the basics of sewing.
There was a slight hiccup in that plan.
I didn't know how to sew!
SO..... Liv and I enrolled in Sewfabulous beginner sewing class this Fall.
We loved it so much we signed up again for the intermediate course, starting in Jan.
We both made pajama pants, and Liv made a matching shirt.
Our next class will introduce sewing on a zipper and pleats. 
Liv is making a hooded poncho, and I'm making a dress for me.
It has pushed me past my fear of sewing, and I even made my first quilt in my free time!

Here is to more creativity in 2012!
