I really dislike altering my clothing. But, I don't have much choice in the matter because even when I purchase clothes in petite sizes I still have to shorten the length of dresses and pants. There was a time in my life when I made all of my clothes. So, it isn't that I don't know how to do alterations. It is just that I don't want to do it anymore.
Since my personal life is changing dramatically, I have purchased a few new things. It never feels like I am getting something new when I have to sit down at the sewing machine and work on them first before I can wear them. I think their is a possibility that I will be looking for a seamstress in my area that can give me a little help.
I would much rather spend my time at the sewing machine making a quilt! Remember, I just purchased that beautiful Poppies Collection fabric for a wall hanging.
With such big changes in my life I am having a challenge in finding time to do the things that need to be done at home, especially in the garden at this time of year. I am having a fabulous time and would not change it for anything, but none the less, I feel like I am always behind with many of the things I did on a regular basis.
Believe me, life is wonderful.
