Hello everyone! I'm a mama from the Midwest US of 2 Wee Monsters and wife to one large one ;) I've been sewing since I was a little girl when I learned from my mother. I guess I consider myself an intermediate to advanced seamstress though there's much to learn yet! I've been refashioning and reconstructing for years but just discovered this blog a few months ago. This is my first stint at WR and I'm very excited! I've made a 6 month commitment here, but since I don't buy new clothing very often don't think that will be too much of a challenge. In the next two weeks I will be going through my closets and getting rid of (or refashioning) everything that does not fit or I just plain don't like. After 2 kids, my closet is full of "I wish" & "I used to" clothes. It can be depressing. I'm very much looking forward to a wardrobe overhaul and actually doing some sewing for myself!
