My newest form of therapy

I have enjoyed sewing for years, although I've tended to limit it to things like curtains, pillows, and costumes that are only going to be worn once so it doesn't matter how well they're contructed. Lately, however, I've become really adventurous and even tried making some clothing. There are so many great FREE tutorials (I heart free!) to help guide you step-by-step through your project, which is perfect because I don't really know how to read a pattern, and I learn better seeing than reading.

Oh, and turns out being totally thrifty and reconstructing things and doing then in a less than professional or correct way is a popular way of doing things now. Apparently I've been decades ahead of the curve! I'll post a slideshow of some of the things I've been making.


That's right...Worst Blogger Ever!

Okay, maybe not the worst...but right up there, I'm afraid. I get into moods where I like updating and adding pictures, and sharing with the two people who read this what all we're up to. But then I get in this mood where I hate fighting with my iPhoto program, which seems to take any pictures that I use for a post, and adds them to about 12 folders, which makes me crazy. I'm determined to not let this computer get all junked up like my last one. Oh, and speaking of my old computer....the one that Best Buy said would cost about $700 to fix....yeah, that one. Well, a friend from church fixed it....for freeeeEEEEEEE! (Said in my best Adam Sandler voice in the movie Bedtime Stories.)

So, I'm going to spend today and tomorrow trying to bring this blog as up-to-date as possible, because I have a feeling things are going to start getting really crazy around here!
