Sew WhataboutCHOO?!


(shoes circa 1962 for baby Phyllis)
My bedroom has become a gathering spot for my sew and sew friends~
I've had fun tweaking the corners of my room so as not to 
sicken any visitors! 
Dust gathers you know...
Keeping just the items that make us the happiest in our surroundings isn't easy, is it?! 
I've decide rotating our memorable little keepsakes is a wonderful thing to do. 
Pull this out, put this away :) 
Planting hankies as I go...*sniff* *achoo*
Bless Me Bless YOU!

Sew what if I don't know what I'm doing at the machine...
My 82 year old mother will tell me :) 

What did we have for lunch you ask? 
(I love your questions!!) 
We had potato soup with bacon and cheddar on top and crusty bread with butter and cherry crisp with ice cream for dessert!
