Wow, you have been busy! Everything looks wonderful. I'm sure the kiddos will love their new clothes. Are they Christmas gifts?


RE: Been busy lately- sewing

No not for xmas,they are the "just because",.None of the ggk's live close by so i'm always making or buying stuff I think they'll like,and I don't do any of that expensive junk either like x-boxes etc.For toys I send stuff they have to use their imaginations,hands and eyes.

They love to get my "care pkgs",and I love to sew and am trying to use up some of my stash.

Thanks Donna for the compliment.

I also keep trying to get this board active again,as I know we have a lot of sewers out there.

RE: Been busy lately- sewing

Your pictures remind me of sewing I once did to use up fabric I had accumulated. Every winter I made stacks of shorts and t-shirts in varying children's sizes. In the Spring I gave them to a nun who worked in a very poor section of Cincinnati. She would distribute them to families who needed them.

In later years I made all sorts of pajamas for the St. Vincent hotel which took in homeless people, especially families . I double stitched everything as I knew they would be washed every day.
Once in a while I used a pattern for a really pretty little girl's nightie and always hoped it gave a tot a happy night.
