Sewing Machine Cover

Well... It's been such a long time since I was able to sew anything. My older sewing machines did not work properly all these years. So, for Christmas I received a brand new one. 

Boy was I happy and scared at the same time. Happy because I have a new sewing machine and that I can make the outfits I've been wanting to make my daughters for so long. Scared because I am so rusty at sewing.

So I decided instead of going right into making the outfits, I would try some smaller projects. Pinterest had many options and wonderful ideas. Took me a long time to decide what I wanted to try first. 

When I came across the blog, Nap Time Journal, I knew what it would be.... 


I chose from my old fabrics that have been packed away and got to work. It was not easy. So many mistakes were made, but I was able to quickly fix them without any problems. Now I know what adjustments need to be made on the next cover I make. 

A fun learning project.




Thanks for stopping by!

Round Robin #25 ~ Send Home

This Round Robin we sent the samplers to the original owners for a fresh start. I sent one home to a woman in Israel. I stitched this one before and it was so much fun to stitch. Beautiful on how it turned out with all the stitchers additions.
