Business Website

This last week I was able to spend some time updating my business website for Sew It Seams. I am still working on getting a full price list for sewing different things, especially clothing and alterations. Since I specialize in home decor sewing, I haven't really nailed prices down for clothing. When you find you have a chance to check it out, please take a look a look at my website and tell me what you think! I'd love to hear from you!

Everybody, in the pool!

Arthur began swim lessons yesterday morning. These will run for two weeks, thirty minutes each day.

The first lesson, Arthur was feeling quite timid in the water. Even with a life vest on, he didn't want to venture too far from the side of the pool. The instructor, however, was able to convince him to float around a bit while she pulled him.

This morning Arthur spent the first half of the lesson wanting to just float around. He does have a life vest on during the lesson, so there is no fear of going too far under the water. While the instructor worked with the other children, she and I noticed Arthur testing the water by putting his chin and then his mouth into the water. Soon, he was ready to do anything the instructor asked him to do.

The next hurdle will be to get him past the phobia of putting his ears in the water. I'm hoping it is just because his ears are slightly plugged from a recent illness and that he'll be like a fish in water in no time.

Second Quilt of 2009

I am well on my way of keeping my goal of finishing a quilt a month! I finished the binding on this quilt in the morning and it will be delivered either Sunday or Monday to a lady from our church.

This lady had open heart surgery just before Christmas. I asked the ladies from our church to make a nine patch block and an applique heart block. I then sewed all of them together into this lovely quilt. All the blocks look so great together! Everyone did a fantastic job!
