Thanks for stopping by!
I live in Old Homosassa, part of the Nature Coast of Florida with my husband Terry.
This isn’t my only blog, I’ve been writing about our life on my other website, Just a Slice of Life in Perfect. Lots of oversharing there plus news about the community, travel, photos, and our adventures.
This site is dedicated to DIY–sewing, quilting, photography, gardening, and any other creative endeavor I take on. Some of the projects I write about are original and include tutorials. Others are my interpretation of something from Pinterest, other blogs, magazine articles, and occasionally from a boring old pattern.
I started sewing when I was in Junior High School. I’m tall and that’s about the time when I got fed up with being forced to wear “flood” pants. So I made all of my clothes and then went on to making my daughter’s outfits when she was born many many years later. That lasted until she was about five. She was quite the fashionista at that early age and one day refused to wear anything I made. She even took all those adorable high-waisted dresses to the neighbor girl.
I mostly make “things” now. Drapes, pillows, quilts, totes…things. There might be an occasional dress that shows up on my sewing machine. I try to sew everyday. Even if it’s only for an hour. Usually early in the morning. I use a Baby Lock Unity sewing machine. I never expected to have such a wonderful piece of equipment and I love, love, love it!
I also help out at the “Sew Cool! Workshop” at the Old Homosassa Learning Center. We have had many sewing machines, fabric, irons, and ironing boards donated to the center. And we have volunteers that are happy to assist any level of sewist with any project so we are able to offer FREE sewing to anyone in our community!
Along with all that, I’m on the Board of Commissioners for the Homosassa Special Water District. I was elected! People like me! Ha!
Hope you’ll join me!
