My rantings about my busy life as a mom, full-time biologist and my love of all things sewing and crafty.

2 Birds - 1 Stone
Or, how to accomplish two challenges with one project.
Week 1s challenge we were supposed to be sewing Lil Blue Boo's Sienna Dress. I never was able to actually get off my bum and do any sewing.
Week 2s challenge - Sewing with fleece and using a decorative stitch. Heather is making fleece hats for her munchkin. My son however has hats galore - probably enough to wear a different one every day for a month.
Hmmm, now how do I combine my first two challenges into one?
AHHH!! Make a fleece Sienna Dress!
Now for the decorative stitching. My wonderful machine, circa 1984, is a Bernina Record 930 Electronic that I inherited from my dear grandmother Gizella Nagelvoort. It has 26 different stitches to choose from.
