I have finally got going on my first sewing project! I am making a remembrance blanket for my mother and hope to be done by Mothers day. After my dad passed away 5 years ago she gave me some of his favorite shirts to make her a blanket and I could just never bring myself to cut them up. Recently I saw a similar blanket for a friend and saw how much comfort and peace it give him and decided I was being selfish and my mom would really enjoy this - so cutting and sewing up a storm!

Well all my well laid plans didn't happen! No crafting or sewing done yet, still trying to get my room together and make a sewing table that folds up into the bureau...I have been buying materials and making a list of what I want to make this year, so once I get started there will be no stopping me :) Hope to have the room started/done by end of this weekend.
