OBSESSIVE ~ With Every Bone In My Body!

I remember one time my friend Sharon said that about herself and I know it totally applies to me also. Not only am I obsessive with every bone in my body, I obsess on multiple things at one time. Kind of like multi-tasking but multi-obsessing!
So one of the new things I am currently obsessed with is sewing. I know, this really isn't something new for me, but I have not sewn anything in about ten years! I think the last time I sewed the tension was messed up on my sewing machine and I couldn't fix it so I put it in the hall closet and have not given it any more thought except when I have to move it for one reason or another. My sewing machine I got when I was thirteen years old and it was a school sewing machine, I think I paid $100.00 at the time. Over the years it got a lot of use. At one time I was pretty good. I remember making a pair of gauchos for my friend Jodi Dokken when we were in high school! How funny! Anyway, I really want to sew something. Now that I have a little girl to sew for I think it would be fun. One of the Mom's in my class is sewing for her kids. Her blog is www.tylerkateandaddison.blogspot.com. She is making some really cute dresses, and pants with ruffles. Check it out! I went to a fabric store in town that has some nicer fabric and it was that feeling of a kid in a candy store. www.strawberry-patches.com. The same feeling I would get every time I went into my favorite bead store. I could just stay there for hours. Looking, touching, planning, changing, then finally getting something going home making it and having to go back the next day to get more!!! I may have to start out on wal-mart fabric and work up to the more expensive fabric!!!
I will keep you posted and maybe even have something to show you soon.
Happy Cinco de Mayo!
I am grateful I get a day off tomorrow. David is having one of his friends over in the morning to play and then I have to take the baby for shots in the afternoon. I am sure the remainder of the day will be spent on laundry! I have fallen a little behind. :(
Oh well,
Happy Tuesday,

That is great that you are sewing! Boy I have the attention span of about one pillow when it comes to sewing or any crafts!! I'm the opposite of obsessive about those things!! Funny huh, but I obsess about other things don't you worry!! Love you all!!!
