Follow along as I sew what I wear, cook and garden.

Happy Fourth of July!
So, it's Sunday; it's the Fourth and what did we do? Ran errands and I sewed. Yep, there is real sewing going on here even in the heat! We are going away for a few days on Thursday; it's my mil's 90th birthday and we are traveling down to Asheville by way of Roanoke, where our gorgeous grandson lives. His parents are there too of course, so we'll spend the night and all leave the following morning. From there Asheville is only 4 hours. Why am I mentioning this? New wardrobe of course. How can I go away without new clothes? I have two pairs of pants, a dress and a tunic to show you all. But, not today they need to be photographed. In the meantime you can look at Jakob the wonder boy as his Dad refers to him. He got the tiger suit at the Detroit Zoo during his trip to meet his great grandfather, my Dad. It even has a tail.
I have been sewing since I was a teenager, mostly self taught. I sew for myself, with some some occasional sewing for my daughter. I love garment sewing and will only sew home dec if desperate. I love to cook and read and try to avoid cleaning as much as possible.
