A little sewing and a Birthday

Wow! Someone donated this little beauty to sewing club, and since I did not have a serger the gals let me bring it home to use. For as long as I want. It was recently serviced and runs beautiful. I just need to learn how to use it.

Sewing is going to be a lot more fun.

A Halloween pillow case made with the serger. I have a few more cut out for gifts.

A cute summer top for the BH. It is cooling down here so I will have to move on to more fall/winter items to sew. Pants will be so much easier on the serger. After this week I will only be gone on Tuesday nights for Cub/Boy Scouts, so looking forward to that.
More sewing time for the kids at the BH.

This guy turned 11 earlier this week. He made his own cake this year. Can't believe how fast he is growing. Soon, very soon he will be in middle school.

Not looking forward to that.

If anyone reads this blog, you will be seeing some changes, till I find something I like.

Happy Fall and take care,

The weather is cooling down here and I had NO where to be this Saturday, so, I finally made Matt some pajama pants ( I had been trying all summer to get these done). Yes, they are a little big, but this kid likes to move a lot and keeps growing. The fabric comes from my late mother-in-laws stash. It is a hockey print. They do have a navy blue cuff on the bottom, but my camera was in one of its moods and only let me take 2 pictures.

Hope they keep him warm on these cool nights. Next time I will go a little smaller on the legs and cuffs, but keep the length. He does want me to make him some more. Yea!

I also worked on my blue work snowman quilt, but could not get a picture. Also, putting together a blanket quilt that my mom hand made. Hope to finish that today. I also have three pair of jeans to alter plus one top. Then I need to work on some more doll cloths. I found another doll, so I better get to work making fall and winter clothes for her and Dolly.

Take care,
