~This is what Kimberly chose!~
~This is what Sarah chose!~ =)
Then the next day we started making their skirts...WITH NO PATTERN...and God helped us.
~Kimberly cutting out her skirt!~
~Kimberly sewed a lot on her skirt. It was the first time that she had sewed on a machine, and she did a great job.~
~If you can see him...Noah is sitting on my lap...SMILING at you...through the hole on the sewing machine!~
~Since Sarah wanted to help sew her skirts...but was too short to push the pedal and the material through at the same time, she just ran the pedal...and I pushed the material through. =)
I was helping Kimberly cut out her skirt when I got to thinking that a friend had just given me a hot pink suit coat...and that the hot pink dots in Kimberly's material...just might match...so I checked and it did match...so I made me a skirt too. =)
~Us and our new skirts!~
The next day I surprised the girls while they were gone...and made them some bloomers out of the left-overs of Sarah's material. For those of you who may not know what bloomers are, here's a pic.
~The girl's bloomers.~
~The girls showing the tip of their bloomers. =)~
Our girls wear these, so that they can be girls...climb trees, and do flips in the park...and still be ladylike! =)
We had A LOT of fun using my new machine...it works wonders and works wonderfully too!! We sewed some designs on some of the kids jean skirts and Noah's jeans too. That was FUN!
~We embroidered a string of these "candies" on the bottom of one of Sarah's jean skirts that I had made (for Kimberly) while still in AZ.~
~We did a train on Noah's jeans!~
~We sewed hearts on the bottom of one of Kimberly's skirts.~
In the midst of sewing...I have been struggling with an infection, so have not been well. We also had several visitors come to our house, (2 who stayed until 12:30 AM...and one who stayed for 5 hours!!=) and we also ran and had a picnic with my friend Diana...the one that lost her baby. BUT...all of the visitors and pictures will have to wait until next week! =) We had a lot of fun sewing and using my machine! Thank God for that nice sewing machine, and for His help to us as we sewed (without patterns! =)
