"I welcome you to needle and thREAD. What have you been sewing lately? Or are you embroidering? Pulling a needle with thread through lovely fabric to make life more beautiful somehow? Would you share with us just a single photo (or more) and a description of what you're up to? Would you talk sewing and books with us? I'd love that so much."
This week I needed to finish up a little patriotic sewing.
Luke needed a new shirt for the 4th of July so I pulled out one of my favorite patterns.
The pattern is Simplicity 3852 and includes all sizes from baby to adult.
I do cut this shirt about 2 inches longer than the pattern. My boys never seem to keep a shirt tucked in, and the 2 inches help them try to stay tucked in.
I'm reading nothing but relaxing fiction right now on these hot summer days. Right now I'm in the middle of The Amish Midwife. This book is hard to put down. It has twist and turns, secrets and mystery. Perfect for a summer read.
Luke learned to ride a two wheeler this past week.
We also made these patriotic pins to wear on the 4th of July.
