Sew Much Fun

******UPDATED******

I just added the heart I wanted to the apron:

Did I tell you how much I love to sew?

Well, I do.

Kate's birthday is next week (wow) and I made this for her:

Oh, the FUN I'm having! I just made this pattern up and am surprised that it works! I tried it on Keagan for size, and it's cute! :) Can't wait to give it to her!

I've busied myself with creating other Christmas gifts and it's killing me that I can't show them yet, since they're for people who have Internet access! :D I'll show pics of those after Christmas, though. I'm falling even more in love with my Singer each day. I had no idea this could be "sew" much fun!
Peace of Christ to you,

The Singer's Song

This is my "new" Singer.

And this is not just any sewing machine; it was my grandma's machine as I grew up. She made countless party dresses and jumpers for me on this thing. When I stop and just sit in front of it, I can remember coming down her hallway, hearing the steady hum and wondering what she was working on.

It was usually something for me. :)

Now it's my turn to pull up a chair and craft little things for my special girl.

This Singer has a few songs under her belt; I hope I'll learn to sing on key, too.

Bippity Boppity Boo

I got an early Christmas present today! Mom bought me 6 of these chairs (bargain!), and I bought this huge picture for only $5.

Before you suppose I think they are darling the way they are, stay tuned to see their magical transformations! This week I'm Fairy Godmother and Mom is Fairy Grandmother!

Bippity Boppity Boo!

And Now I Know

I wanted to compare some pictures of Keagan and Caleb to see why everyone says Caleb looks like a Keagan repeat.
