Sew Sew Sew!

I spent the day at my cousin Gretchen‘s house today.  My aunt T (Gretchen’s step-mom) was kind enough to watch our kids so we could spend the day together sewing.

We had a blast and I really don’t know how I would get any gifts made this year without Gretchen.  She helped me so much today.  And every day, really because I’m constantly emailing her with questions about how to do stuff.  (Sorry Gret)  We laughed and talked and ate and sewed.  It was great.

Even though I did grab the hot part of the iron, burning my fingerprints off and stabbed myself precisely 96,000 times with pins!  😀

I’m really excited about all the things I’m making and wish I could show you now!

    Doncha just love it when there is someone to show you how to do something you never thought you could!
    Wish I had more people like that in my life.
    Seems I’m the one doing the teaching nowadays. I’m not complaining, only wishing to be the one to learn a bit.
    I can’t wait to see what you’ve made!!!

      Yes, in fact Becky, you are a great teacher! You’ve taught me a lot this year about gardening, with my tomatoes…and now irises! 🙂

    I did tell Ryan about how you burned yourself and kept stabbing yourself. I think you are more like T than I ever knew. I had so much fun.

      If only I could be like T in all the other ways! Like having a perfect house and knowing how to do all things domestic! Ha ha!
