I have had so much fun sewing for my grand- babies. I recently made these adorable black velvet booties. They are very easy to make - really they are. It only takes about 15 mintues a shoe. I did my own cross-hatch quilting about 1/2" apart with the velvet fabric on top, a cotton polka dot on the back and a layer of warm and natural batting sandwiched in between.
Jayne was visiting one day and I had to stop at my local quilt shop for fabric. She was so excited to see the hundreds and hundreds of bolts of fabric. I told her she could pick her favorite and then I would make her a dress. She told me exactly what she wanted and picked the eyelet trim for the bottom. So of course when I finished her dress I had to make a second dress to match for the baby. And, of course a matching diaper cover from eyelet fabric to match. You can find the perfect pattern for the diaper covers here. I've got the cutest grand babies in the world.

No - I Don't Just Sew
I love to create. I usually come up with an idea of something I want to do and then after dreaming about it (literally) I'm ready to draw the plans, make the pattern or solve the problem. Whether I am designing a new home, remodeling a kitchen, creating real estate marketing, decorating a tablescape, or making a birthday cake - I always try to strive for "my" level of perfection by doing the very best I can. My reward is seeing others find joy in the things I create.
Years ago my grandma Dover, a successful business woman, gave me the best advice ever. She said, “if you really want to be good at something… just find someone else who is – and then learn from them.” Yes, it’s just that easy.
