It’s a love hate relationship that I have with sewing. I love the product that results from a great sewing project, but the nitty gritty details involved in traditional patterns…well those tend to kill me.

Lately, I tend to make my own sewing patterns that are quick and simple…and I might not always follow all the sewing rules that we were taught in our life skills class. Yeah, I just referenced life skills…YIKES…I am getting old! I absolutely hate having to fold and press and fold and press a seam…so I kinda might avoid that at all costs. Yes, I have done it a few times, and I do it when needed, but my sewing style can be describes as quick and dirty. I aim to get the best looking product with the least amount of effort…I mean I am a busy mom, who has time for all that seam pressing anyways?

So, if you want to see what I am stitching up, this is the place to hang out. I will be posting all my sewing projects here. And some of them even will be more ‘by the rules’ for all those type A personalities out there! Happy sewing and enjoy!
