Sewing Bloggers

I'm grateful for sewing bloggers.  I'm so glad especially for those who spend the time to post their projects, tips, and tutorials.  I know that the people in my life think that I'm a really good seamstress, but in reality I'm constantly improving and the rate of improvement has escalated so much since I have discovered the world of sewing bloggers.  I have learned new techniques for doing full bust adjustments (FBAs), shirring, collars, and a myriad of other things.  I get so much inspiration from seeing their projects.  I've also discovered that I'm more willing to accept and wear my garments (and dress my girls in them) that aren't perfect and this is an enormous boost to all our wardrobes.  I discovered sewing magazines from reading their blogs, which is huge.  I really think that if I lost access to the Internet, there would be two things I really missed, one is the community of parents of children with Down syndrome and the other would be sewing bloggers.

Also, a note on Ally.  She is doing much better.  She had some sort of stomach flu and the beginnings of heart issues.  She is now on an ace inhibitor and her appetite has gotten much better.  I really appreciate all the support my friends and family have given me.


  1. I have thought of getting into sewing as a hobby and a way to scape of all the craziness of therapies, nutrition intervention and the kids. I have even told my husband I want a sewing machine for Christmas. So I may be a sewing blogger friend, too.

    1. That would be cool. If you get one, let me know. I assume Tommy has the same issue that my bear cub has with shorter arms and legs and I have lots of things I do for custom making her clothing.
