This was a spur of the moment outing. We had not seen Jennifer and the kids for over a year. We made up for lost times quickly. We surprised the kids and met them at the Hands On Children’s Museum. They didn’t recognize us at first, but soon it was Papa come on, and look at this Papa. Blessed beyond words remembering the good time we had. Thank you so much Jennifer.
Still sewing Lanyards from my Applegreen Cottage pattern that I am enjoying very much.
Tea Wallets are getting a face lift with whimsycle nature friends print.
Garden is almost done the canning and eating of God’s abundance was a total blessing all summer long. With cantaloupe and sweet potatoes still growing nicely.
Praying for our country takes place moment by moment as we seek earnestly for His protection and guidance during these times of uncertainty, that’s not really true. Our Father never vacates His Throne. He is always in control.
Denim is a favorite of ours. Living on our farm and even now on our one acre homesite in town. I can’t begin to tell you how many denim jumpers, overalls, and bags I have enjoyed making. Writing about this new project is very exciting to me as I made both of my items from some green chambray yardage I picked up at my very favorite small town, Mission Possible Thrift Store. They are so good to me always practically giving me the fabric and this time was no different . Two 3 yard pieces, I was beyond excited at my find. I had my heart set on a big pocketed jumper.
This was the only money I spent on top of the 2.00 fabric purchase which included the pattern I used for the toddler romper.
I was reminded of the importance of proper needles very soon into the large pocketed jumper as the many layers were demanding.
My Bernadette 38 was a gift from my Mother. Her name is Bunny and we get along swell. She did a great job with all the thicknesses but again I feel its always wise to use proper needles when using denim.
Now for the sweet little jumpsuit for my grand daughter Iyanah. I happened upon this pattern and remembered using it with my 9 girls and was thrilled to see it again. We have 11 children only 2 are boys. Working on 26 grandchildren and recently 2 great grand boys. Maybe things are changing.
Her are a few pictures of the toddler jumpsuit.
Thank you all at Sewcialists for the opportunity to share in this months February theme Denim.
Made these coordinating dresses for these sweet girls. I had fun sewing them and thought they had turned out very nice. However seeing the girls in them, I can see where they could make any dress beautiful.
