It's hard to imagine it's almost time to pack up the tree. We had a great holiday with Kevin's folks and my mom coming in (separately) for a few days each.
I managed to get almost all the sewing done in time to get it under the tree-- and one of the girls (Kat) is enjoying her own sewing machine this year, thanks to Santa.
She got a little Janome Mini, and she has been sewing up a storm. This machine has mixed reviews. There's some great reviews of it on patternreview.com. Kat is only 6, turning 7- and it's a super machine for her. It really sews, winds bobbins and has some adjustments in stitch length.
One of her first projects was a drawstring bag- an easy beginning project if you are a new sewer yourself. I'll try to get the tutorial up later today.
Time to start gearing up for Valentine's Day :) I have some new designs up, in case you have the sewing bug. I'm also going to try my hand at pettiskirts again, after receiving two GLORIOUS fluffy ones for the girls at Christmas.
MaryKay is slowly trying to dig herself out from under a mountain if fabric, one tutorial at a time.
