I had some time for my hobby this weekend. :>} Thanks to Suzanne I have a new mantra. Sewing is my hobby, not my job. I replaced the last zipper I ever plan to replace for anyone outside the family. After that was finished, whoo-eee!One of my co-workers just graduated from nursing school. She had a really tough way to go, having to postpone her dreams for many years due to serious family illness.
Her name isn't really Clara Barton, I think she deserves her privacy. Look at the cute buttons my sister sent. So perfect for this project! When I finished this one Larry liked the color combination so well I made the one above for him, complete with a charming black cat.
My mother-in-law gave me this beautiful sweatshirt. I love the colors, which didn't come out as well on camera as it really is. I've always been fond of lighthouses, and cool summer evenings are more comfortable with a cozy sweatshirt. Of course I plan to wear it all fall and winter as well. :>}
