I am having fun sewing so I have been too busy to blog. Sorry:( Thanks for all the kind comments about my sewing. I am glad that you are tolerating the pictures of all Sydney Katya's spring wardrobe. I have finished several more since my last blog but haven't taken the time to post. In the last two weeks, I have been sewing and we also went to Atlanta for the MLK weekend. It was fun but very cold. I enjoyed sewing with my sister while I was there. Anyways, the kids are doing well and are always active doing something. We had two birthday parties today so Ryan went to one and I went to the other. Not much exciting in our life other than school (which for the boys isn't that exciting either most of the time). Just wanted to write a little so you would know that I was okay (in case anyone was wondering).

Ryan and the Jacksons got me a sewing machine for Christmas. I have never sewed before but have always wanted to learn. I went and bought some material and patterns and this is what I have made so far. I love it! It is so much fun to create something with your own two hands. The pink and purple dresses will have bows at the top once I figure how to make them. I just love the purple material. The apron will have a orange flounce at the bottom and looks better in person than in the picture. The capri pants have taken me almost a week to make. They were horrible. Thanks to Mrs. Jackson for all the help putting together the patterns that I couldn't figure out. I had the pants sewn all the way together where she couldn't even get her legs in. I sewed them 2 times and tore out the stitches and started over. That is my hardest part. The tutu idea was from my cousin. It turned out cute! Easy to make but a little time consuming and tedious. I am sure I will have many more to come.
