“I pray because I can't help myself. I pray because I'm helpless. I pray because the need flows out of me all the time- waking and sleeping. It doesn't change God- it changes me.”

I believe in the sun even when it's not shining. I believe in love even when I don't feel it. And I believe in God even when He is silent. (quote found on the wall of a concentration camp)

HAPPY MONDAY! TIME FOR SOME SPRING CHANGES!
What is WRONG with me? I have never mastered sewing, because of being "Domestically Challenged!" There is a love hate relationship with my sewing machine and it was turned over to the girls a couple of years ago, then Alli came home and it needed to be put away for a while.
We have now gotten it back out. AND.... the fabric store was having a huge pattern sale. We found patterns for a dollar! GOOD ONES!
When we got home, Mike said, "Why don't you make your own patterns?" He forgot.... I have not learned how. BUT.... there is always YOU TUBE, and this very nice lady at the fabric store who knew that I obviously had NO CLUE what I was doing. She gave me her phone number. LOL
We HAVE GOT TO DO SOMETHING regarding clothing for the girls. I am frustrated with what is available in the stores, the expensive prices and then the "picky factor".
Between all of us, I bet we can come up with a few cute outfits for summer. Simple shorts and tops. Of course I still remember the last one hour pattern I tried to sew took me FOUR hours and then I collapsed in a pile of (amusing to other's) tears.
So I'm ready to try again. Between Erika and You tube.... I might learn a new trick. :)
