back in the saddle....



It's pretty much written into Mixa girl DNA to love sewing and/or quilting. My mom has always been an excellent seamstress just as her mother was. I always joke with my sisters that I switched places with them because back when we were teenagers at home, I was usually the only one sewing besides mom, but now, they all sew like crazy and I have hardly gotten my machine out since I've been married. I did make Evie a quilt with lots of help from my mom, but that is it. I had been meaning to get back into it but never did. Then one day at church, they were passing around a sign-up for people to donate items for the Young Women's silent auction fundraiser for Girl's Camp. So, I signed up to donate a baby blanket, thereby forcing myself to complete a sewing project within a few weeks. This is the end result, thanks to Rose for the idea, and I'm looking forward to more projects.
