A lacy tunic and skinny pants

Tunic 01After way too much lapsed time, I recently indulged myself and did some more sewing.  I could easily sew instead of doing just about anything else, especially hard stuff like construction or boring stuff like fall cleaning my house. 

While I have a whole stack of projects I'm just dying to dig into, I did a spur of the moment something else!  As it was kind of a fun adventure, I thought I'd share some of the highlights for you other seamstresses out there.

40 years of adventure

Diana 01Today is the 221st anniversary of the death of the Queen of France Marie Antoinette.  Forty years ago, not only was that not foremost in my mind, I wasn't even aware of such a historical date.  As you can see, I was on my way to the hospital to give birth to my second daughter.

Yes, today another one of my kids turns 40.  While that was one of my own most exciting birthdays, as I was starting my new life in France, my kids don't seem to understand they are not allowed to do that.

It makes me feel old, and I don't like that!

CCC - Sandra makes three

CCC - Sandra 01

The Calvary Chapel Couturières now has another success story.  From a group of absolute beginners who for the most part had never touched a sewing machine before, we had a number of young women create their own little drawstring bag to hold their sewing supplies during the first class.

Then Janka was the first to finish an actual wearable garment, a T-shirt, with Lindsey coming in second, as part of the second class project.  And now we have Sandra, who ended up doing a different garment.

Sewing with cats award

Sewing With Cats 01I am a cat person.  It's genetic.  My grandma was a cat person, I grew up with cats, Doc Leo is a cat person, so it's only natural that our children are also cat people.  I am also a seamstress.  I've been sewing my whole life.  Which means I've been sewing with cats. 

Thus, it was very exciting to be given a new badge that I have truly earned over the years!
