Sewing is a great “levelter” for me. It can either challenge me adding several wrinkles to my brain as I solve problems I encounter or try to make the next “my Mom can make that” opportunity; or, it can soothe me into a zone of mindless productiveness as an oft repeated task puts me in a comfortable, almost meditative, “zone” .while my mind wanders.

My favorite thing about sewing is the order it bring to my otherwise chaotic life. Each step is thought out and planned then followed through. In the end I have something I am proud of creating. Seeing is a stress relief in a stressful place, it is a calm in a troublesome storm, it is peace. Simply sewing is happiness.

My favorite thing about sewing is that it takes me away from the daily routine. I can lose myself in my project whether it is making doll clothes, quilting, sewing for my granddaughters or just creating. I’ve been sewing for a lot of years and it’s always been my “go to” for relaxation and creativity.

Sewing is my favorite hobby. I enjoy it very much. I love creating clothing, especially historical and ethnic clothing for people and mostly for dolls. I have made several period pieces, including all the undergarments, for my dolls, by hand sewing only. I enjoy working and playing with different materials and have so much fun adding embellishments. I have soooo many projects in my mind to make, I need to live at least 3 life times.

My favorite thing about sewing is that I can make personalized gifts for people. I don’t have a much money to spend on supplies; but I have 60 years of experience and a large supply of fabric on hand to work with. It brings me unmeasurable joy to create unique doll clothes and miniature quilts to give to people who may never have received something made with heart and love, specifically with them in mind. So many people just need to know someone cares about them.
