Welcome to My Blog!

I am a mom to two wonderful kids, a 6 year old boy and a 2 year old girl. They are everything in the world to me. This blog is largely about them, and my recently acquired (or have I yet?) appetite for sewing clothes for them.

It all started when I came across this book, "My forever dress". I was looking for books for my 6 year old who started reading on his own at 3 years (touch wood!!) . Although this wasn't exactly a book for him, I absolutely loved the idea. Now I like to give my children ever lasting memories about their childhood and I thought I ought to try sewing. 

Having had no one (absolutely no one ) in my family with sewing skills, it was a challenge for me finding it in me. To my advantage, I could clearly remember that I was the only one in my family of 4 siblings, all girls, to have any crafty skills. Anyhow I asked my husband -who nods YES to whatever I ask because it's easier that way (Is it just him or do all husbands think that way?, let me know.)- if I could get a sewing machine. He said Yes!! (Well I expected that). OK, I ordered Brother CS6000i from I got the machine (and there's a little funny story about that, let me know if anybody likes to hear that, I will tell ya.) and some fabric from Joann and started making clothes. To every single piece of clothing I made in the past two month, give credit to the wonderful bloggers out there, who take the time and effort to put the tutorials out there for people like me. I have a whole lot of blogs on my Google Reader for a while now. My favorite bloggers are: 

This is only the top 3 of my favorites, there are a whole lot of others too. 

I will start posting on kids, my sewing success stories and failures, my husband's photography and my little adventures with cooking as well.

Stay Tuned, more to come soon.

  1. Very interesting. What's life without a little passion. You never know what your real passion in life is unless you try it. Thanks for the inspiration.
