05:28 pm - Workin' on My Goals
One of my goals for 2010 was to learn to knit and crochet. I used to knit washcloths, and they were so fun that I made a pile of them. But, that was many years ago, and I've forgotten how. I plan to re-learn and make more washcloths in the near future. But, I'm not going to stop there this time. I want to make hats and other things, as well.
Yesterday I began working on another of my goals. I wanted to brush up on my sewing skills so I could make clothes. Steve just bought me a Janome sewing machine, (THANK YOU, MY LOVE!!!) and I am having a ball! I saw an adorable, very simple pattern for a little girl's sundress that I just had to try for a starter. Here is the result. I just love it! As it was coming together I said to myself, "Oh my gosh! This is so cute!" over and over. I kept smiling and smiling the whole time:
.... and check out the back.... and the matching "bloomers".
I've got some red polka-dot material to make a second one, and it's calling to me this very moment. I must go and sew while I'm on a roll!
