I just saw this on the window of Halley's classroom.
It made me so happy.
When asked by her teacher to tell about her mom she said:

"My mom can sews.  She makes clothes."

Probably since just about every naptime, she sleeps to the
 sound of my very noisy, in need of a major tune up machine.

When she wakes up one of the first things she says is:

"What did you make me?"

So while I contemplate being separated from 
my beloved machine while it gets repaired,
I will leave you with some fun sewing machine eye candy.

If you have thought about taking up sewing, but are scared...
I have seen Singers on sale at Target for $69!
Try it.
With all of the fun and free online tutorials, 
I truly believe there has never, ever been a better time to start.
Don't even get me started on the fabric...

  2. How cute is Halley! And can you please take a quick trip here to St. Louis to teach me how to sew. I have an old Singer and I just go sit and stare at it. I don't know where to begin. It doesn't help I have 4-6 kids here per day.... but anyway, if you are ever in town let me know and I would be every so thankful for some lessons. I thought I could remember something from Home-Ec in 7th grade but it's not coming back to me as I was hoping.... anyway, you are so fun!

  3. So sweet! She's a doll. I love that she wants to know what you made her.

    I'm trying hard not to be too afraid of my machine. But I will admit it scares me a bit. I haven't asked much of it yet, because I'm afraid it won't cooperate. But I see inspiration all around - there is some fabric I'm simply drooling over!

  7. SO SWEET!!! My daughter gets up for "rest time" (aka, playing in her room because she refuses to sleeep at nap time) and tells me it isn't fair that I always sew stuff for strangers. :)

  11. That is so sweet!

    I have told my hubby (several times over the past few weeks) that since I have been visiting - make that lurking - on your site for the past few months that I really do want to try my hand at sewing. I make be a huge failure but at least I can try, right? For nothing else, I am a scrapper too and my pages are so in need of a good, messy stitch around the edges. :)
