Years ago, there was this lady who would bring me her mending, everything from missing buttons to holey pants. There was this one pair of pants, her favorite, that I think I patched in about 15 places. I didn't really mind doing her mending it, in a way it was nice to save these clothes. When it comes to my own mending, I hate it. I've been cleaning out closets and changing out the clothes for the summer season and I've come across lots of mending that I have been neglecting. SO today the plan is to mend.
I've been a bit burnt out of sewing lately. I haven't worked on anything since I finished the quilts for my girls for their birthdays. I've also been a little down in the dumps and now I'm starting to wonder if I just need to sew something.
I went to the Machine Home Quilter show last week. It was amazing. I wish I had 15,000 extra dollars and a spare room to be able to buy a quilting machine. My honey took me for date night and I'm pretty sure he would have bought one if we had the means. I really love looking at all the quilts on display. I kept thinking that I wish I had the time to make some of those quilts. They really are works of art.

My sweet little cowgirl had a birthday this week. I made a quilt for her too.

The fabric is from a group called 'Wanna be a cowgirl" it's perfect for my little cowgirl.
