Today I finally got started again, I go in spurts. I hemmed 4 pair of pants, mended a shirt pocket, reattached a belt loop and sewed a button. Tomorrow I will alter 2 dresses and add straps to a prom dress. Then I need to get creative, after I finish two pettiskirts for clients and then I need to work on my most special client's (my lil diva) Easter dress. Not sure what I will do. I hope to do something with lots of lace or something fun a Springy- I might have to ask princess's opinion.

I finally got to spend time with my sewing machine, it been awhile. I finished custom curtains for a friend, breaking away to fit in laundry. Tomorrow I plan on hemming pants and mending garments for clients. I hope this week to get to sew dresses, I was so inspired from this weeks Project Runway. Diva beckoning for bedtime stories so I will return later.

Well, things haven't exactly gone as I had planned. I have been sick, so sewing has been at a stand still. Please cont. to visit I will get my blog going more and get my Esty store open. I have so many ideas. Even though I haven't created items for my store yet, please feel free to contact me with any sewing needs you might need.
Here is one of the Christening gowns I made, including bonnet and booties.

I had this idea of wanting to sew a frilling skirt, after searching the web I discovered the latest trend is pettiskirts.
I fell in love so I had to have one for my diva, but wow the price of some of them so that became another search. This is the 1st of many now that I have sewn. I created quite a few for people for Christmas and for my craft show. They are fun and can be done in so many different colors. I think the next one I will create for lil miss will be bright springy colors, maybe something for Easter. Let me know if you would like one for a certain diva you may know.
As you can see I have a quite the model. This dress was fun I just kind of put it together and I think it turned out pretty cute.

Well it is Friday. I have big plans for the weekend - I want to finish the lace I started at the class I took last Sat. Then I have a pair of overalls to mend and then curtains to sew for a friend. Not to mention I need to start thinking Spring and sew cute springy outfits for my Etsy store and the Spring craft show, especially in this wintry weather a little "sunshine" will be nice.

I am gearing up to find my creative side, I feel my machine beckoning me, but I also have started new activities. So now I have to find that balance. I added a new Bible study and Zumba. Enjoy both, but there is also my families activities as well. I will keep praying and try to stay flexible.
