Here is Krystin making her first sewing project. She needed little guidance. I told her what she needed to do, and she went to town. I was amazed. It was as if she has been sewing for awhile. We just finished cutting out the fabric pattern. Next on to the sewing machine.
She is a sewing prodigy. Her stitches were very straight for her first project. I was so very proud of my student. I didn't even have to do that much teaching. She just sewed away. I also made a pair of pj's. for my sister Cindy. The pj's were so comfy. I told Krystin I wanted pj's. When I came home from work the next day, She had pj's waiting for me. Awe. That was so sweet of her to do for me. I just love them. She made mine special. I have a pocket on the front, which by the way I didn't even tell her how to do. Cindy received her pants today. I wish she could be here so that we can wear them together, and get some popcorn and watch movies all night.

Thank you so much Krystin. I just love them. A couple of days before We made the pants I cut Krystin's hair. Did I mention I have a cosmetology license. I love the layers I cut into her hair.
This is the front:)

This is the back. Cutting these layers in her hair made me miss my long hair. So, I am growing it back out again.
I know I said I would post my knitting projects, But I haven't taken pictures of them yet. I am making one purse, one woven bag, and a baby sling. The baby sling is one that I've been wanting to design to for a while now, and I am doing so whenever I have a spare moment. Pictures soon to come I promise. I only had maybe two or three days off in July. I need a break!!!! I will be off work on Sunday, so I will take some nice pictures. Happy knitting everyone.

The pants came out great! Wish I could fly down to Florida and have you do something with my mess! That cut looks great on her!

The PJ's look great. Nice work for a first project. I'm back up and running--once I got over the kidney stone, we had internet problems and I felt really out of touch with the world. How wiring and a bad modem can mess everything up!

Don't you just love the fearlessness of kids?! I would sit and think about it for month before getting started. Sometimes, you have to just do it! And look how great they are....!
