How Could I Forget?

Last week I totally forgot Ruby Tuesday!  It sure doesn't take long to get out of a habit!  I remembered on Thursday, and of course, it was a little late to try to pretend I had not remembered on Tuesday...

So, without further ado, here is my contribution to Ruby Tuesday.


 I have always done a lot of sewing - and in the last few years, most of mine has been done to assist the charitable work my Mom does in Florida.  This organizer is for the craft show in November - we have several tables there every year, and the money from the sale of the items we make goes to purchase fabrics, notions, etc. for the many hand-tied lap quilts, walker bags, children's clothing items and hundreds of other things that are distributed throughout her county and beyond.  She is truly a remarkable lady - with an incredible amount of energy for someone who is 81 years young!

Wow, sounds like two incredible women to me. Love the choice of print, gives it a very country feel.

I could use an organizer like that, because a lot of my stuff litters the tabletop. (**sigh**)

I love this organizer. I have a store bought one that is similar but not near as durable.

I learned to sew when in 4-H as a teen. I made all my own maternity clothes, curtains etc for years but was not the best seamstress. Once two of my sisters got into sewing professionally I started to hire them and quit completely.

Hubby purchased me a new machine after we married five years ago and I hate to admit it but it has never been out of the box which has not made him happy. He is short and insist that every shirt and slacks he wears be tailored just perfectly. You can take the man out of the military but never take the military out of the man. He wants me to do that and save the tailoring bill. But, I know that my work would not be to his high standards and I'm afraid to try. Plus, I do not have the love of sewing that my sisters have.
