About Me

Hello!  I am a stay-at-home mom to 3 children...twin girls and one boy.  I have been sewing since I was 13, making outfits for myself by 16.  One of the first outfits I ever made was a button-up blouse with a zip-up A-line skirt--it was all purple!  I'm guessing it was either my favorite color or the fabric was on sale for a really good price!  I actually made this outfit in Home Ec.  I continued to learn alot about sewing from my mother.  I felt so privileged to be able to sew on her sewing machine; I imagine in much the same way my girls are in awe over mine. 



I have always said sewing is "good therapy."  It has a way of soothing the soul.  I find that if I'm not sewing, I'm online looking at fabric, shopping for patterns, reading other sewing blogs or organizing something in my sewing room.

I am also a breast cancer survivor.  Please see my tab on my journey if you or someone you know has or is going through this.  It transforms your life; I'm so thankful to be alive.

I sew with my Pfaff Performance 5.0, Janome Memory Craft 6500, Janome MyLock, and my Brother CV3550. One of my girls sews with my older machine, a Pfaff Tiptronic 2040.

Above all, God and family first.  I'm thankful for so much in my life.  I don't take anything for granted.  I feel truly blessed.

I hope you enjoy looking at my blog.  I would love for you to follow me and share your blog with me too!




Sincerely,
Shirley
