I Miss You!

Oh, dear friends!  I feel remiss not Chipper Snippering lately.  I miss this place and you!  I have so much to tell you and no time to tell it!

I promise to come back very soon with plenty of sewing to share.

In the meantime, God bless!

needle and thREAD

needle and thREAD
Practical sewing in my house today.  We like pirates around here and my daughter got a pirate costume for her birthday, but she can't stand the elastic in it.  Her words this morning (after sleeping in it), "Get rid of the ruffle, Mom.  It drives me crazy."

This is what I did:






Same look, less crazy. More comfortable for 24 hour wear?

As for books, I picked up my sister-in-law's new book Berry Creek Secrets.  She's in the midst of creating and illustrating a series of books for Catholic girls and publishing it herself through Amazon and Barnsandnoble.com.  When I started the book, I could barely take it in I was so nervous.  I mean, I know the author and I am anxious for her success.


Now that I've loosened up a bit, I'm enjoying the banter of the characters and seeing my sister-in-law's personality come out through her writing.  Way to go Sascha!
