    Hi Rosie & all my new sewing friends,
    I will be heading home to Canada and my sewing machine in a couple of weeks. While I have been away for the past 3 1/2 months I have been browsing for inspiration on the internet and have some possible new ideas. I will need to get home to try them out and see if they work. Then I will share. My biggest and so far most exciting find were the “belts” I found in the pet collar department of the dollar store. I was so pleased with them that I went out and bought an 18″ doll just to make sure they worked the way I had imagined. I am definitely pleased with them. I can’t wait to make up some great new outfits and accessorize them with the belts. I will be sure to send some photos when I have a few completed. I think a long tube (knee sock) dress accessorized with a jazzy belt might be a definite possibility. I am anxious to try it out.
    I did spend part of the winter trying to teach myself to crochet. Boy, do I have a lot to learn! I may take crochet and knitting lessons when I am home so I can be more productive next winter. However, I do have to focus on getting my granddaughters up to speed with their sewing skills. If I don’t get to my lessons when I am home I will look for someplace to learn next winter when I am back here in Florida.
    Happy sewing, everyone!
    Peggy
