...and I'm starting this blog to share creative ideas with friends, old and new. I love reading other people's blogs about sewing, homemaking, and life; maybe I'll be able to inspire you! For my first post, I am going to share a few of my favorite things. Most of all, I love spending time with my family. I have one terrific hubby and 5 adorable children: Petey (14), Katie (12), Rosie (10), Davy (5), and Andy (8 weeks)!
When I have free time, I like sewing and crafting of all kinds: smocking, machine or hand embroidery, quilting, crocheting and knitting.
I also love to read, have tea parties, sit on my porch, or visit with friends.
My favorite TV show is the Waltons. I am a fan of Harry Potter and Anne of Green Gables; the books and the movies. I also love the Elm Creek Quilt and Outlander series of books.
Other things I'm interested in are: antiques, going to the ocean, photography and dolls. I love the Edwardian and 1930's periods in history-and the clothing styles of those times.

I hope to share many pictures of my projects with you. Coming up this week: my first machine smocking and I will participate in the Old Fashioned Baby Daygown Sew Along!
