New Hobby

I have not posted for almost two months! I have been very busy with school matters. Students have survived another round of SAT and FCAT testing and the count down to the end of the school year has begun! I haven't been cross stitching a lot but I have a little progress to show. I, also, have been trying to learn to sew! I have taken
two beginning sewing classes at Joann's Fabrics. I can actually use a sewing machine now, which is something I didn't know how to do before. I enjoyed the classes so much that I bought a sewing machine and created a little pillow cover. I also made Aiden a dinosaur pillow case. My stitching looks like a beginners. I didn't press the pillow cover like I should have and not all stitching is straight but I am getting better at it. I plan on taking their sewing 201 class this summer. In that class you learn to make a skirt. It should be fun. I also would like to learn to quilt. My mom made the most beautiful quilts until her eyesight became so bad that she couldn't make them anymore. I would like to continue the tradition of quiltmaking for our family. Mr. Aiden got a new haircut on Saturday and looks quite handsome. He hammed it up for the camera! Tim and I are looking forward to our honeymoon vacation this summer. We are going to Lake Michigan and Lake Huron, areas that neither one of us have been to before. Thank you all for taking the time to read this post and for your wonderful comments. Until next time, Happy Stitching!
