Sheesh... its Christmas everywhere

Remember this little project I dragged out following the inspiration from I am … I blogged about it earlier this month… well don’t laugh … I learned whipped back stitch and I just love it…. Ta da

I didn’t get much sewing done but for the whipped back stitch…. as EVERYTHING is packed away as we are TRYING to sell this place…. BUT

I did manage to make this… and there is a story that goes with it and it is a bit long so please bear with me… when my girls first did sewing class at high school about 2002… I help out… as sewing was my profession BLAH BLAH BLAH oh and BLAH BLAH BLAH…

and when James took the same steps I also helped out about 2007…even though he was sort of annoyed about me attending his class… the first project was a simple bag but the next project was a pair of night shorts made with the student’s choice of fabric and the fabric below was the what James choose… yes, it is nearly 10 years ago but I really only just found the scraps and made this project to keep my sewing needles in…

I hope you like my version of a LONG story…. HA HA HA… would hate for me to digress and really tell a long story…
Oh... just a bit of background to the story I have two daughters Danielle and Suzanne and two sons James and Jacob all in that order…

And I made 1 star for a quilt in a box that is a group project… loving all the stars… its going to go together so very nicely…. I will make a few more...
and until next time…
Cheerers for now and thanks for stopping by… Robyn…
