I consider myself an accomplished sewer. Not to boast, but I have sewed tailored jackets, dresses, clothes for myself, clothing for my children as they were growing, wedding dresses when that time came for more than my three girls.

Well, I am sure that the baby won't take notice.
And, I AM going to do this again and again until I conquer this,
or wish I had never started.
