Hello from Hawaii!

Hello from a newbie!

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!
