Sewing

Last weekend, I finished the white princess seamed dress. I just love this pattern.

I'm making a different off white dress this weekend (I hope). But before then, I'm taking my little boys to a library used book sale. I love that they have such a great love of books. Of course, not having TV as any of the kids grew up really helped that situation a lot. Video games? Forget it. One of my sons brought a playstation or some such crap home from college at the end of his first year, and when it came into the house, I told him to take it back outside and put it in the trunk of his car, because it had no place in my house. He protested that it would be in his room, and I reminded him of whose names are on the deed - and his is not one of them. I won the battle, of course. I'm pretty sure I was a mean mom on that day (what else is new?).

No TV or video games here either. Too much to do without it. You look fantastic in your purdy new dress.

Hi Marjie, Hope the boys had fun at the book sale. I wish our library would do something like that. You look good in white! I love how you so casually say you sewed this and now this weekend you're making another dress! Here I sit dreading having to sew on some buttons that have come off the kids clothes!

You look so cute - love the dress!

I think it's great that you don't have tv or allow video games in your home.
