Short and sweet and not full of artsy photos, but it’s here. In October I helped a friend from church fix her sewing machine, which was breaking thread and needles left and right. In order to be sure it really did work when it was used for more than a couple minutes, I decided to make her a little present using some already cut out strips of quilting cotton. After about an hour or two, I had a simple apron done for Timia.
Since I haven’t asked Timia’s mom if it is okay to post a photo of her, I’ve blurred her face. Timia really liked the apron and has asked for sewing lessons. I have to come up with some simple projects to start her out on. Any suggestions?
Also, in case you’re wondering, the writing is going well so far and I’ve got a couple blog posts (first this, then this) you can read in case you’re wondering what I’m up to this month. I do have a couple quick ideas for some of the Sew Weekly challenges this month, so I may be able to squeak them in there in time, though pics may just be of my dress form. We’ll see!
