Never had a pattern

When I made something like a handbag or a pair of pants for myself I never had a pattern to tell me how to do what I wanted.  The fun for me was not having a pattern!!  The fun for me was figuring it out and deciding how big or small I wanted it...  Deciding the fabrics to use and what design on the purse I wanted!!!  Then figuring out how to do what I wanted???? That was the fun!!!  I can still do stuff in the kitchen the way I use to.  I never follow recipes!!!

I am getting old now and I can't figure out things like I use to do!!!!!!  It is no fun to get old!!!  Nothing works for you the way it use to!!! 
I made this wall hanging years ago!!!  This all just came from my head.
The very first quilt I ever did!!
I made what I was wearing there too!!!
I made what I was wearing there except for my hat and shoes and socks!!  I even made the necklace I was wearing!!!!!

I use to make everything I wanted almost!!!  Not any more!!!!!!
 But I can tell you about them and show you some!!!
 Love coming your way,  Fern


  1. You can make such beautiful things without a pattern? WOW! That's brilliant! We are not able to make something even with a pattern or an instruction :o) Have a great weekend!

  2. You are so lucky to have that kind of talent. I can't sew even when I DO have a pattern...

    Have a nice weekend!

  3. You are such a talented woman. Love all your creations.

  4. You are a very talented lady, Auntie Fern!

    Love ya lots♥

  7. Oh my gosh Fern, you are one very talented lady. I used to like to so but don't have the time lately. I still don't use recipes when I cook except on rare occasions.
