Hi blog friends. We had a cold morning but it has warmed up very well. I think it is about 65 degrees out there.
Sunday is for family. The pic is of my Mother at age 82. She is wearing clothes that I made for her. Everything you can see I made her. The outfit was a Christmas present. I think she looked real good!!! I was proud of my gift to her. I ever made the necklace she is wearing.
I had made her a black purse the year before but she was not carrying it. Probably b/c
she was showing off her that year gifts. I use to sew for everybody that was in my life all the time. Not anymore. I wish I felt more like sewing now but I just don't.
You all mean so much to me . I love when you come and talk to me!!!
Come back soon.
Love you lots, Bambi, Happy & Fern


  1. You are a really good seamstress Fren. My Mom used to make all my clothes and I made a lot of my kids clothes when they were young but I seem to only make quilts now. Maybe some day I'll have a grandaughter to sew some dresses for. Enjoy your warmth. It is beautiful up in NH here today-in the 50's which is warm for us.

  2. Your mom looks beautiful in the outfit that you made her, Fern. She's a very pretty lady!

    Love ya lots

  3. Hi Fern, wow!! That outfit is stunning as is your mother and she looks almost ageless for 82. You clever lady you are.

  4. Fern -- you are a VERY talented lady! WOW! You made all of that! Amazing! I have never been able to sew clothes. I knit sweaters and that but I do believe that I am allergic to a sewing machine. I have never been able to do a good job with anything on it!
    Hope your Sunday is going well. The weather here is nice. Actually melting some! I still want to live where you live!
    Take care and keep smiling!

  5. Oh yeah -- I forgot to mention -- your mother was a very classy lady! Very pretty. That must be where you get your looks!

  6. Hi Fern, so cool that you can make clothes for your mom!

  16. Fern, the clothing you stitched for your lovely mother is beautiful. No wonder she was glowing in the pictures. She must've been so proud ... and you well should have felt, too. You are a wonderful seamstress! We can see the love that went into what you made, as well as the talent. We are happy that you have photos (that you share!) so you can always be reminded of those wonderful gifts and accomplishments!

    With love
    Jake and Fergi xxoo

  17. WOW, You are very talented. I have not sewn anything since I had home economics about 30 years ago!!!
    Have a good day!
