I guess we have more in common then just sewing my husband also had a stroke in 2007, he also had throat cancer and beat that too. What guild do you belong to. I have friends who belong to the quilting guilds in New Orleans. Hope all is well with your husband. Keep in touch
Hi Alexia, I live in Kentwood since the storm but I use to live in St Bernard Parish. I sew with a group of people from the Southshore. Do you work? I have a group of ladies who come up to sew with me in my sewing room twice a month and I also have an embroidery club once a month. We'll have to get together some time. Keep in touch.............Suzy
Hi Alexia. I was in LA when it snowed in Dec. I was at my sister-in-law's in Vinton down by hwy 10 just a stones throw from TX. We had gone down to spend the holidays in Katy, TX with our children and grandchildren. I bought my daughter a new cheap Singer machine a couple of years ago so i wouldn't have to lug my machine down there every time we went so I made pajama pants for all the grandkids for Christmas! They were all made from fleece so good timing since it has been so cold down there. I have not been able to sew at home for awhile. It is a very long story about hubby retireing and moving back to our old house in NV and old plugs. But soon hopefully!
Happy Sunday! Thought I would give the pattern info for the toille dress - it's Butterick 3772. My little toille dress is 12 months. The pattern comes in size 1,2,3 together and size 4,5,6 together. The pattern doesn't call for lining but I added that and the peek-a-boo hemming. Hope you enjoy!
i got your message about the quilting group you meet on the 4th tuesday. what is the name of the group and where is it?
i belong to one on the last thursday of the month, but always open to a new one.
thanks sew much!
I am so sorry didn't see your post. I am so excited about this community. I am not able to participate with any projects right now but please keep me in mind for the future. I have been ill....yuck! We live on the Westbank but during hurricane season we stay at our vacation place. I love home and can't wait to get back.
Thanks for the welcome. I recently had a bit of experience sewing for a preemie. My granddaughter was born at 29 weeks gestation weighting 2 lbs and 13 oz. on June 23rd. I searched the internet for micro preemie patterns to make her gowns. Yesterday she went home weighting almost 7 lbs wearing a dress that I made from a baby doll pattern.
The quilt guild sounds like lots of fun. Patti is always talking about it. I would love to join that also, but since I live in Mandeville and still have one child left at home - that makes it a little difficult.
