So Much to Sew

Lately, I have been sewing a lot. A dress for myself, a couple of dresses for friends...and before that, I can't even remember at the moment. Yes, life is that much of a blur! Sometimes it's hard to find time to fit everything in, and these last few weeks, I've been grateful to finally have a more steady routine.

I'm not the only one in my house who has been sewing, either. Both of my sisters and I are making dresses for an upcoming dance, so last week, we had two sewing machines going at the same time. One is our old Kenmore, that is alerting us to its need for oil with high pitched squeaks. The other is a much newer machine that a dear lady from church lent us. But we don't have two of everything. The ironing board, the scissors, and the seam ripper just have to be shared.

The dance I mentioned above is a 19th century historic ball, and costumes will range from the Regency era up through the Civil War. I can't wait to show you the things my sisters and I are making, and I'm sure I will feature some of my friends' costumes here, as well. I have so many talented seamstress friends!

As I am sort of iced in today (this winter keeps throwing things at us!), I will be sewing again. And probably listening to a sermon, watching a movie with the family, and eating good food.

Have a blessed Sunday!
