Wadder Completed

I have finally completed the shell I talked about on July 13th. I finished it on July 18th. I have been trying to post the picture on the internet, but the cameras are having a bit of technical difficulty. What I may do is post the picture on my blog with my phone camera, just to give you an idea on how badly this simple shell was made. I am not sure of where I went wrong, but it was horrible(like Denise on the The Cosby show when she made Theo a Gordan Gartrell Shirt:)). Well, I am not going to throw in the towel just yet, more wadders to come and possible a great time to be had by me. I am starting to figure out that nothing is lost in making wadders as this is increasing my ability to do what I like to do and that is to sew:). I know that with more practice I will increase my skills and eventually(two or three years) I will be able to produce something that I can wear. I do not know where fear comes from, but I know that once you become afraid of things( such as messing up good fabric) you never take a chance any more. It over takes your life and you do not experience the good life that God has planned for you. I think I am working through my fears. Keep me straight!!!

Sewing Again

Well, I guess I need to say I have finally threaded one of my machines and began sewing a simple shell. I did not pin it needless to say and I had to rip the seams out, so now it has a hole in the knit. I was totally upset, because it is not perfect and my DH had to remind me that I have not really sewn much in the last 4 years.
I feel that I am going in the right direction, but I think that I am so scared of failing to be good at sewing that I am now wondering if I should stick with quilting only? I love fashion sewing, but with three children, I find that it is not relaxing to me because I want to hurry and get finished. I would like to know if anyone one else feels this way?
I need to relax and not worry about one more thing. I love to look at fashion sewing, but I do not want to take my time. I want everything done now. Quilting was much more relaxing because I could see subtle progress each time I worked on a project. Fashion sewing requires more fitting than I am accustomed to at this time. I would like to have as much feedback on this topic as possible. I feel like a new beginning home sewer I know that it will take time for me to get back on track, but if it is not relaxing now, do you think I should give it a rest or when do you think someone should throw in the towel?

Happy Birthday to My Oldest and Youngest

Today is my oldest princess's birthday. I want to wish her a Happy Sweet Sixteenth Birthday. I love her and wish her all of the joy and success that life can bring her. With GOD sweetheart all things are possible. I would also like to wish my little prince a Happy Belated Birthday(June 22). I wish him all of the joy and success that life can give him. I will be giving my youngest princess a shout out in August for her birthday. She is a sweetie. I really love all of my children and they are the reason that I get out of bed each day. I hope that they will always know that they mean the world to me.

Happy Belated 4th of July

Hi Everyone,
I have been away for a while, but have lurked on other people's sights. I hope that you all had a great holiday. My family came into town and we have had a great time. We ate some great food and talked about some old times. I have just been off of work for 1 week now and I have not really started any new projects, but I feel that mojo starting any moment with pictures to follow. Thanks to all of you that have sent me nice comments to get the mojo started. I think that my job was depressing me and that is the reason for the lack of work(ha, ha). I hope to update my blog this week with a project. Please pray for me:)
