What is your history with sewing?

I sewed Barbie clothes when I was young. As a teen I used to "borrow" my mom's sewing machine. As a young adult sewing was sporadic. When I moved to WV for a year in '10 fell in love with it again. Since I had my daughter I've slowed a bit, but now that she's a bit older would like to get motivated to finish things quicker. (A pair of jammies have been on my machine over a month.)

Tell us about your sewing machine(s).

I just got a Brother HC1850 in December. Prior to that I had a Brother XL 2600i.

When you make a mistake while sewing, what do you do?

Depends on the mistake. Most times it's seam ripping. Sometimes it's a "creative choice". Sometimes it looks better with the mistake.

What's your favorite thing you've ever sewn? Can we see a picture?

Changes. Currently it's the Tinkerbell dress I made my daughter for Halloween/Mickey's Not So Scary Halloween party. (If a blog link isn't ok I can remove.) http://roseofalltrades.blogspot.com/2014/01/tinkerbell-and-great-not-really-fairy.html

If skill, time, and resources were no issue, what would you sew right now?

I bought some fabulous fabric for an Elsa from Frozen dress. I'd like to be a grown up and say I would make a dress for my daughter, but really I would like to make one for myself. Or even something Elsa-ish that I could wear on the street without getting funny looks.
