Sorry that I've been gone, I guess I had a writing block. I keep thinking about this blog and how to make it revelant for what is going on in the world. In the winter I have a hard time because to me it's boring without the garden and the great outdoors but now I believe I can find something to write about with everything that is going on. I'll tell you how I'm keeping busy and how I save money all in one post. I'm still doing book and movie reviews but I'll write a weekly post on Friday.
My granddaughter's leggings developed a hole in knee so I cut them off and hemmed them for shorts to use this summer. I found the patch in my sewing supplies and sewed it on too. Grand daughter hand sewed one side. She is learning to sew and I told her what a great job she was doing. She is very interested in crafting.
We cut off our jeans often growing up and I believe that's why we used lace a lot to cover up our sewing when we were young. We also fringed the bottom of jean's we cut off. Did you or do you do that too?
This week I also finished emboirdering another unicorn pillowcase (I already made one for granddaughter). I plan on putting this one in the Fair this summer and then gifting it to another young girl.
