Grandma Bev visited in July and brought her sewing machine with her! She helped me make these pants for Lauren. I love them, but Lauren hates them with a burning passion. She treats them as if I lined them with live scorpions. I had to bribe her to get her to even try them on (see pictures) but that is the closest they have come to her since then! I just bought a sewing machine yesterday so maybe if I enlist Lauren's help in picking out fabrics and patterns, she will like what I make her. Maybe.
