I've been doing a lot of reading of refashioning blogs and it has inspired me to do a few of my own.

So far I have done a shirt that used to be my moms that had some ugly ruged sleeves and a weird collar. So I made a fee little changes to it and still need to do some more because I'm not happy with it.

Most recently I made my daughter a pullowcase dress. It was the first time I had really made something and I see a lot of problems with it but overall for an amateur feel it was pretty decent.

I can remember growing up watching my grandma make me lots of clothes and clothes for my barbies and dolls and helping her make quilts and all sorts of things. I really wish I would have spent more time learning from her. She has since passed and I would LOVE to find someone that would be able to teach  me the ins and outs of my sewing machine and actually using it correctly.

Pretty much everything I know has been self taught but I really would LOVE to be able to make something that would look presentable in public. I have made a few sets of curtains and patched up some jeans but honestly I really have no clue what I'm doing. I just kinda wing it. So if you see something that looks horrible I apologize in advance. ;-p

My baby is 4!! :'(

I can't believe how fast the time has flown. My precious little 6 lb 6 oz newborn has turned into a 4 year old that is getting ready to start school in a couple weeks.

She is smart, talented, entertaining, always has to be the center of attention, and is the most headstrong child I've ever met in my entire life. That doesn't always work out well for us now but I have no doubt in my mind this angel is going to do big things when she is older.

I love you my baby girl!!
