I have this friend and her name is Jenn and she and her family are on their way here to Colorado RIGHT NOW!! I know I've mentioned Jenn before, but I'll recap: we met in Georgia when I was a 19 year old new bride, just before both our husbands deployed to Iraq. We spent that summer sewing together--her learning to sew and me recovering her couches, haha! Oh, and watching Disney Channel movies :)
Fast forward 12 years and six kids later and we try to see each other every year of two. I got to fly out for her birthday in January as a surprise, thanks to her husband, and now her family is coming to visit for the week, yay!!!
So Jenn and I are still sewing buddies. We have been working on a quilt together for over a year. We finished making and exchanging all the blocks and I actually have my top put together! It just needs batting and backing and I can finish it!
We also constantly text photos of things we are working on. Okay, maybe I text more photos than she does, but it's so much fun to have someone who shares your love for sewing to show things to! My mom is my other sewing buddy, we are often showing-and-telling sewing related things.
When I plugged my iPhone in to update this morning, there were so many of these types of pics on there that I had texted to show Jenn. So I thought it would be fun to share here too :)
So this is the past few months of my friendship with Jenn in iPhone photos:
bodice. It was pretty.
That's it (ha!). I am super excited she is visiting with her lovely family. We don't have a lot of plans outside of Denver Fabrics, the big JoAnn's sale and learning to make a full bust adjustment so she can have greater garment sewing success. Exciting stuff for us!! :)
I'm off to wash sheets and clean bathrooms!
