    Just home from my week with my sisters. Lots of fun! And of course we sewed and sewed and sewed.



    We did these little hangings for a sale at the hospital.

    How exciting spending time with your sisters doing what you love. I like your wall hanging.

    What fun. I have two brothers, no sisters. :( But I did teach my youngest brother how to knit when he was 7 and I was 13. :D

    My grandmother was a sewer by necessity, but she was good! My mom started out as a school teacher and then raised the three of us so she didn't sew much, then when I was 12 I wanted a sewing machine. I still remember going with my uncle in his yellow VW beetle to the train station to get the package from Simpsons-Sears! It was too heavy to come through the mail!

    Mom caught the sewing bug after that and she made lots of clothes. There wasn't a piece of polyester crepe knit that was safe in our little town!! And she joined the Women's Institute when we were in high school and then the quilting fun began!
