Jeffrey bean’s 1st go on a sewing machine

Chloe let Jeffrey bean have a go on her new sewing machine, and not surprisingly, he was a natural too.  He caught on so quickly!  I was his age when I got my first sewing machine, a hand-me-down from my grandma’s tailor shop in Fallbrook.  Sewing is in our blood.  I can’t wait to see how the kids progress, and what beautiful creations they’ll be sewing in the near future. My heart is happy.

Day after Christmas 2016

I hope everyone enjoyed a relaxing day post Christmas.  Jeffrey and Chloe spent a good chunk of their morning and day out in our front yard with their new Stomp Rocket.  They had an absolute blast.  (See what I did there?) 🙂

I went to Crunch fitness to have a free training session with a personal trainer because one of my goals in 2017 is to fit into some of the clothes in my closet that I really love.  I did a bit too much baking in 2016.  Anyway, the trainer pretty much kicked my butt and I’m so going to feel it tomorrow.

In other news, Chloe got to use her brand new New Home Janome sewing machine for her first time ever, and she completed her very first machine sewn project!  She made a cloth napkin out of leftover floral fabric from a dress I made her a couple years ago.  She did really well for her first time!  She caught on pretty quick and she is SO proud of her first project.

I’m so proud of my little Chloe Michelle belle.  She sure is growing up fast. 🙂

Today I organized my sewing and craft room, squeee!

Today I tidied up my sewing and craft room aka my woman cave aka our garage.  Squeeee!  I am so excited you guys.  This was a long, long, LONG time coming.  Now I can sew in a pretty space.  🙂  Let’s see how long I can keep it like this, ha!  Neatness does not come naturally to me, unfortunately.  That is all.  Have a fun day, friends!
