    Do you like to sew?

    Can you sew?

    What are you working on now?

    I love to sew! I made most of my clothes when I was in high school, but you can buy clothes as cheaply as you can make them now. So I don't sew clothing anymore. What I have made most recently is window treatments for my house.

    What kind of sewing machines do you have?

    I think I have an almost basic Singer.

    I keep it set up all the time.

    I would love to sew but I was never taught. I can knit and do cross stitch and I am currently learning to crochet :)

    I have a Sears Kenmore. It's quite old, but works great. It stays set up most of the time in the guest room/craft room that I am currently redecorating. The curtains were done today, and next I'll make the pillows and bedskirt. I'll post a pic when I'm finished. :)

    Whatsoever I rip, that shall I sew. But that's my limit.

    I love to sew. My next project is to make some Barbie doll clothes for my youngest. I plan to sew a whole wardrobe and give it to her for Christmas.

    As soon as I get time, I want to learn to quilt. Beware--sewing can become addicting! My fabric stash grows when no one is looking.:laugh:
