After tonight comes crunch time with Thanksgiving on its way and then Christmas/New Years. This year I'm going to do something a little different in a few sewing classes. I have some great gift ideas that can be made in a couple of hours. I'm going to be picking a few sewing classes and switching to gift sewing classes. Say tuned for the ideas and dates!
Now, Last week:
I just love when Christina comes to class. She knows how to make sewing fun and brings many smiles to people around her. She's been trying to get her daughter to sew with her for a long time. She came to class with mom last week and decided sewing was fun. So they hit the fabric store, bought some fabric which they had tons of fun doing and came to class together on Saturday. She's making a blanket for her first project. She will be back for a machine and cutting class with Christina attending too because she's never taken those classes. (and really there isn't much I teach Christina she knows so much about sewing already!)
I love love love the way Anna sews! She really takes her time and thinks about the process that shes doing. She sews in the moment and takes all that sewing has to teach her. She sews things beautifully! I can't find any flaws in her sewing. She came to class this week with a dress she made at home. She wanted to know how to do a blindhem and decided she would hand sew the hem. Yeah, sometimes its hard to get some machines to make a blind hem. But once you set it up right and you hold the fabric right you can do a pretty stitch.. but it takes time to learn and do. She started her next project, a skirt. She's working on the pleats in this picture. She is so precise on getting everything perfect while taking her time! I wanna sew like Anna LOL!
And me, I'm still working on the baby clothes collection for my niece. The only thing I have left to do is sew on all the snaps. I didn't have much time this week to do my own sewing and found myself making a stitch here and there in between students. I have to have these done the next couple of days because next weekend is her baby shower. She lives out of state so I have to mail them off.
I want to wish everyone a happy and safe Halloween. Make many smiles for yourself! I have no idea what were doing yet. I'm kind of done making plans for my kids on events like this. They can decide for themselves what they want to do. She has a costume already. He doesn't so if he wants to go out we're going to have to be creative and come up with something around the house.. just like the good old days when I was a kid. My parents never got me costumes. We always had to come up with something we had around the house. He say's he doesn't want to go trick or treating but I'm sure as soon as the day moves on he will want to go.
I have room in most classes next week. The only class that is full so far is Saturday 3-5pm.
Until next time, Enjoy your moments ~ make them "sew" much fun, Cindy
