YIKES!!!!! Even MORE Sewing Patterns!

YIKES!!!!! Even MORE Sewing Patterns!

imageComing  soon to my ebluejay store this week beginning Friday, Dec. 28, 2018.

I’ve tossed a lot of really bad patterns that I sorted out from an estate haul.  The good ones will be posted up periodically over the next 7-10 days.

Just a tiny sample above.

I’ve been on Etsy, eBay, eBid, eCrater with vintage and antique items, and now I’ve started sewing as a business, along with my personal projects.

Hope you’ll contact me here with questions, and view what I will put up on my ebluejay store, too.

My goal is to post my personal sewing projects, sewing patterns and my projects to show and sell here as well.

Have a Blessed Christmas Season and a Happy New Year in 2019!

Happy Sewing & Crafting!

Don’t Quit Your “Day Job!”

Don’t Quit Your “Day Job!”

It happens: you open a business, you try to get it off the ground, and WHAM

Everybody needs something:

The Boss;

The Family;

The Dog;

You name it… sometimes in life, things just get to be overwhelming and all things creative come to a screeching (and I hope a temporary) halt.

It happens.

PLAN A: ‘Look for the silver lining.’

PLAN B: Buy more toothpicks for eyelids.

I’m working on it…. see you soon.

Mother of the Bride Pink Gown 1987

Mother of the Bride Pink Gown 1987

Seems just like yesterday.  Freddie and I were married in 1987.

We were both in our 30’s and now in our teens…. (immature…)…

I made the gowns for my Mother, my 2 Sisters-in-Law, and beaded my hat (which I regret wearing a hat to this day!). My Mom didn’t want me to sew, and we compromised: my gown was purchased and so were the two teen maids who were my nieces. My other Sisters-in-Law ‘insisted’ on sewing the little girls gowns. Whatever…

Yet, without further adieu, this is the gown I made for Mom:


My Father (who had big hands but a fine pianist and fiber artist) covered all of these buttons for me. Thanks, Dad!


You can see the slips peeking out at the bottom; thankfully, they did not show on The Wedding Day!irene5-e1321108421323

Presenting my beautiful Mother:


Thanks for everything, Mom.

Good Night, Irene. I love you and miss you.


A Blessed 2018!
