I used it a bit when I first got it. I took some classes with my Mom and learned how to make lingerie, bathing suits, and even a tailored suit. But, to be honest, I never really liked to sew until I got my first home and was having our first son. I designed and made all his baby bedding. It felt so good and I really enjoyed doing it.
Fast forward 22 years. My son is having a baby. I work full-time, work two outside the home businesses, and spend a lot of time with the Cowboy (who really likes me to be close to him as much as possible.) I cannot figure out why I blurted out that I would make the baby bedding for my first grandchild!
After a few weeks and stolen hours, I finally finished it today. I will never do it again unless I get a new machine. It was a challenge because my 'vintage' sewing machine was not very friendly to me and kept jamming up. But, all in all, I am happy with it.
I really wasn't planning on blogging about it and, since sewing is not really my thing, I didn't take any pictures of the actual process, but I thought I might as well share it with my 11 followers!
My son did a great job on painting the baby room. I don't have any before pictures, but their apartment was all white walls. He installed a chair rail and painted one wall with stripes and the other in a pale lime green. I couldn't set up an actual photo shoot, so please pardon the lack of nice pictures.
