About

Sewing has been part of my life since I was a little girl. At about 8, I had my own mini machine and was making my own doll clothes patterns. As a teenager, I was sewing tartan onto my tennis shoes (remember the Bay City Rollers?) As I got older, I gained experience; I guess because I wasn't afraid to try different things. I've jumped into many projects from reupholstering a sofa, quilting, bridesmaid dresses, and home decor. When I finally had my daughter, my love of sewing revolved around my love for her. I focused on a Christening gown, outfits, blankets, bibs, and baby hair bows. She grew up in my sewing room, making flower gardens with my straight pins. Then I had my sweet little son and altered my thinking once again, adding duck towels, hats, rag quilts, and Marine costumes to my list of projects.

My children are quite a bit older now so I'm not sewing quite as much for them these…

My children are quite a bit older now so I'm not sewing quite as much for them these days. Of course, there's always Halloween costumes, room decor, a jacket or a fancy dress occasionally and I do sew for myself; but I needed to share with others the things I like to sew most. I do some contract work with the school my husband works at sewing name tapes to AFJROTC uniforms. We are a military family but sewing patches is just not very exciting! LOL! I love to imagine something and then put it all together. And doing it for little ones makes it more fun. I hope other little chicklets, big chicks, (and moms) will love my creations as much as mine did and still do!
