I actually had another blog post in mind for today but I am just too excited not to blog about my foray into sewing clothes. I am a sewing beginner for sure, so it came to everyone’s surprise (especially me) how this turned out.

Anyway, I didn’t want to just donate it back to Goodwill thinking that I could reuse the dress somehow. Well, I recently saw THIS refashion and I was just smitten. The gears in my head started turning and I was inspired to take out that muumuu and start sewing.

I’m a happily married, retired mother of two adults & grandmother of four children. Adjusted at last to my move from WA state & all the green trees & abundant moisture to a different beauty of desert mountains in AZ. The winters in the Mojave Desert are bliss, the 127 degree summers are a test. It is a climate change for sure. I’ve learned to bloom where I’m planted. I must remember, plants have roots, people have legs & to use mine! I am an avid reader of almost all genres & usually have a baker’s dozen books being read at the same time. I craft greeting cards & enjoy sharing my creativity with family & friends. I also surf the internet looking for artists, photographs, quotes, etc. for my Joy is a Choice! Choose Joy Moment by Moment webpage. http://www.facebook.com/Joyisachoice I also make online jigsaw puzzles. http://www.facebook.com/Injoyspuzzlesforfun I'm a voracious reader & have started a book review page on facebook. I now have the freedom to read all night long, should I so choose & don't suffer the repercussions since I can nap the following day. It's the best time of my life.
