What are you most proud of? I dropped the feed dogs on my sewing machine, and chnaged out my standard pressure foot for an open toe darning/quilting foot. I used a multi-color serger thread of bright pink, lime green, and cobalt blue for top thread and in the bobbin. After taking Carol Ann Waugh's Stupendous Stitching class, I had complete confidence to sew lines, circles, diamond shapes to quilt and decorate the exterior fabric for this winter white purse.

By the way, do you ever sleep?!

Yes I sleep and I sew lots. BUT I also do audio and genealogy work at least 4 hours each weekday. My husband and I are about 80% complete (5 year project to restore an 1890's victorian). This fall I'll finish wall crack repairs and skim coat plaster of foyer and stairwell. Room No. 10 is finished out f 13. I'm retired, but love to work. I have two blackboards, and keep a dozen projects going at all times. My husband likes to work too--we are a matched set of book ends. I'd be honored if you take a look at our whole-house restoration website. If you google 1893victorianfarmhouse you'll see it.
