Happiness Is…



daughter and I sewing together

My husband snapped this photo of my daughter and I sewing together late the other night. It’s pretty real. As in: unglamorous and messy, but it makes me so happy to be able to spend time with her this way!

While I’m working on my Hummingbird No.2 hexie quilt, my daughter, is working on her first commission. It’s a cute little romper for a friend. She had made one for herself a few months ago, and someone else liked it so much, he is paying to have one made for his girlfriend. It’s her first commission, and I’m really happy for her!

She is quite talented… although I might be a little biased. She loves cosplay costumes, and has taught herself how to sew to create them. I can’t sew without a pattern, so her abilities already surpass mine in that regard! Here are photos of some of her cosplay costumes that she made herself – sure makes a mama proud! 😉

  1. Looks like the apple doesn’t fall far from the tree when it comes to crafty stuff, Gail! Your daughter’s costumes are fabulous but I’m not sure what “cosplay” means.

    1. Isn’t she cute? There is nothing that makes me happier than to see her be creative!
      Cosplay – noun 1. the practice of dressing up as a character from a movie, book, or video game, especially one from the Japanese genres of manga and anime. 😉
