The Beginning

All good ideas have to start somewhere. That is where I am, somewhere in the beginning of something new. My hands can't be idle long.

So, I sewed. My sweet mother guided me through the process, as I sewed my first project. She is the best seamstress I know. I have always hoped somehow her talents were genetically passed on to me. Maybe, just maybe, they were!

     She gave me the tips, taught me some tricks, but left me to my own devices with the machine. She wanted to be sure I could take full credit for my work. I was thrilled with the outcome, and can't wait to tackle more today!

     I call my little apron, Strawberry Pancakes.  I think it is perfect for spring time treat making in the kitchen, like a Saturday breakfast on the porch of strawberry pancakes and snowy powdered sugar...which by the way.... we got to enjoy at Mom's this weekend. 

I love how the ruffle came out.  It was much easier to "ruffle" than I expected.  There is something so nice about making a machine follow your directions, and it coming out so lovely!

So, maybe I'll go to our little Saturday town market with some little treasures to sale.  It's a start, right? 

Who knew...the B Charmer sews!

  1. Leah, I love the apron. And I'm so sorry to hear about the job - I know you know the platitudes of how when doors close, windows open. I pray the window that opens lets you try out your wings and fly in exactly the way you wish!
