What To Say....

I have wavered between creating a blog and convincing myself that I have nothing relevant to post for some time now....Curiosity finally got the best of me and I decided to give it a whirl...

Some of my fondest memories are of summer days spent crafting with my Nanny (my gramma). We embroidered pillow cases, dresses, just whatever we could find. As a child I loved to create. Short stories, cross stitch, needlepoint, anything I could get my hands on. Slowly, the stress of being a "grown up", paying bills, and being responsible choked all the creative energy right out of me!

It was only after finding some long lost friends that grown up me started searching for that creative side again. Surprisingly, it has returned faster than I thought. My mother blessed me with a sewing machine and I have taken off. It started out as a venture to create cute outfits for my girls, but it is quickly overtaking my world!

My current projects are July 4th outfits (yes I am cutting it close) and a super duper, top secret custom gift for a friend who is getting married July 11. Please stay tuned for pictures and let me know what you think! As the crickets chirp, and the frogs croak outside my window tonight, I will be working away at my sewing table. My husband and boys are all gone this week, working a fireworks stand that we do every December and July. It is the perfect time to strow all my craft paraphanalia from here to yonder, and play, play, play. If anyone cares to join me, I've got sweet tea on ice, Ritz crackers and cheese, and plenty of tunes!
