Picked up this pretty blue light weight jersey, too. It looked like something Julie would choose for herself.
Time to put together a care package for Julie and the babies....
A few weeks ago, I also ordered some gauze fabric for swaddling for her new baby. So fast and easy to whip these into a few blankets for the little guy. Some of the fabric was really nice, but others were a real disappointment with the pattern being askew from the grain lines. Not what I was expecting, but I think Julie will find them useful. Into the care package, too.
While at the serger I whipped up a little fleece blanket for Wrenn who is a big fan of the Bears along with her daddy. Into the package. Done. Off to the post office.
I gotta say, it's so good to be able to sew again. Gosh, I've been away from my machines for so long, I had to get out the instructions to refresh on how to use them again. I still have some residual shakiness from my illness, but it seems to only affect threading the machine needles, and there are helps out there for that....so not a biggie. I'm sure it'll get better with a little more time. Anyway, its great to get creative again, shakiness or none.
Until the next time........
