This blog feels a bit quiet this week…I’ve been working on some other projects.
I do hope to post a few more book reviews in the next week or so.
Here are some of the books I will be reviewing in the next week or so…
The Innkeeper’s Daughter by Michelle Griep
The Tempering Agent by Victoria Pitts Caine
(this one is currently only 0.99 on Amazon for kindle!)
His Risk by Shelley Shepard Gray
Check back soon for reviews on these books! 🙂 I look forward to telling you about them!
About my other projects…
One of these is sewing. I think I’ve mentioned it before on here, we have four girls, and I sew most of our dresses. Right now, we are all in need of about two new ones, which means 10 more dresses I should sew in the very near future! 🙂 I have 3 of those cut out, I’m hoping to post a picture of my stack of fabric for sewing once I get them all cut out… 😉
About sewing…I really need to get a few of the girls started on sewing their own dresses…the three oldest all know how to run a sewing machine, but just need some practice, I have high hopes of them each sewing at least one dress this summer…we’ll see if we get anywhere near that goal.
My Mom has always enjoyed sewing. It’s what I remember her doing most, during my growing up years. I really don’t remember her sitting down with me and teaching me to sew, I think it was more the kind of thing where I had a sewing machine set up close to where she was sewing, and then when I’d need help, she’d be right there.
Now it’s time for me to teach it to the next generation. While I feel like I can do ok with sewing, it definitely is not my love. So to teach it my girls feels a bit overwhelming. I’d rather have them just know how to do it! Ideally, I want them to sit down and sew, or learn to sew, during a time when I am also sewing. What doesn’t work is for me to be working in the kitchen or doing other stuff and then trying to show them how to sew.
To those of you that sew, I’d love to hear advice from you on teaching daughters to sew…or any other helpful tips along those lines! 🙂
