Sometimes the questions are complicated and the answers are simple

Another week gone by.This one was a bit different because my mom taught me how to sew :) She is very good at it and she is sewing almost all her life (even though that's not her job). When me and my sister were younger mom made us a lot of clothes, but later she was always tired after work and rarely found time for sewing. I loved to make dresses for my Barbie but I guess I never had a wish to learn sewing for real. But these last days made me realize that it's better to have a lot of skills even if you'll never use them again than not having them at all. So here it very first product :) Mom said I should sew something simplier than a blouse for the begging but I proved her wrong. I think I made very nice blouse (of course under my mom's supervision and with her advices) from mom's old skirt she never wore. I'm happy I can use a lot of pieces of fabric mom bought and never used, because nowadays sewing something is more expensive than actually buying similar cloth in a store.
I think it's nice my mom is passing her knowledge down to me just like my gradma did to her. After first two days sitting at the sewing machine, btw it's 37 years old electric machine, I can't wait another free weekend to sew something else...I think I'm gonna make a blouse again :)

Miss you

Hey everyone! I know I haven't posted anything for quite some time now but I was studying for exam and I had no free time.
A lot of things happend in this past weeks. It's like hundred degrees outside and everyone's already in shorts and it's only May. I love sunny days but it a bit too hot even for me. I guess I'm not ready for summer  yet :) I also don't like this time of the year because I miss someone to spent time with. We all have family and friends we spent time with or go places, but people are like birds with one wing...we need another wing to fly... and I miss mine.
