my crew 2012
in addition to being a newby sewer, i'm a mother of seven and wife of one. i've been dragging my kids right along side me in this sewing/crafting adventure begun late 2010.
on-line, we guard our children's identities and privacy closely, so although i feature their projects along with my own work, i will not show their sweet faces or use their darling names, as much as i love both. our last name is completely taboo.
also top-secret is our location. let's just say we're blessed to live in the good ole' USA, in one of the hotter regions. naturally, that could be one of several states, some of which i have also lived in during my lifetime.
if we are fortunate enough to know you, pretty please do not reveal or refer to any of this information on this blog.
still, all the paranoia aside, here's a look at the family.
daughter #1, fourteen years old
son #1, twelve
can work my machine, has crazy-big ideas (like the patchwork bags he made his littlest sisters last christmas), and tries a bit of everything. not a committed sewer, but very artistic and always has a creative project of one sort or another going on: baking, paper airplanes, mini weapons, holiday decorations, drawing.
daughter #2, eleven
son #2, nine
daughter #3, seven
daughter #4, five
daughter #5, one!
