I guess I’ll combine my sewing and quilting.
First: My Sewing
I used to make all of my daughters’ dresses. I used to make my own as well. One year I made Loser seventeen suits with the caveat that when he started making enough money, I would never make another one. I don’t have anything left that I made with the exception of my very first coat. I have never had the heart to get rid of it. It still fits, although it is severely “out of style.” I loved this coat.
Second: My Quilting
The only pictures of quilts I have are ones that I have already posted but I’ll post them again.
One is the quilt I made for Loser, using his daddys’ ties. The other one is his “me” quilt. I put things that represented his life. Everything on the quilt was drawn by me, cut out and individually sewn on.
I guess my quilting is the only thing I’ve ever done that has actually “helped” somebody. I gave several of them to homeless people when it was cold.
Today I tag:
