Creating Home - Sunday Homemaker

True Roots

I started sewing as a young girl because my mom’s favorite hobby was sewing, and she taught me how to do it.  For the longest time, I sewed on my Mom’s sewing machine.  Later when I was sixteen years old, my parents gave me a sewing machine for Christmas that I still have and use today.  It’s a Kenmore-12 Stitch and still works like I champ!  Ever since we moved into our home two years ago, I’ve started getting back to my true roots and love of homemaking and sewing.

A Season For Everything

Have you ever noticed how life goes through cycles?  I go through phases where I will do something for months or even years.  Then I stop and won’t do it again for a long time.  That’s how sewing is with me.  I just started sewing again after a ten year break and am enjoying it so much again!  Many of you are familiar with why I started Creating Home.  I was a full-time homemaker for almost twenty years before my divorce.  My life completely changed after that when I moved in with my parents for four years while I could get a degree in interior design. After I graduated, started working, and moved into my home, my life has come full-circle again where I’m back to doing what I love again.


I’ve recently started making my own aprons because I love them so much.  Bib aprons are my favorite, and that’s what I’m making here.  If you don’t sew and are looking for cute aprons, my favorite place to shop for aprons is Anthropologie.  I’m sharing a few of my favorites below.

Do you have any hobbies that you start and stop but always return to?  I’d love to hear about them!

If you’re looking for a fun new way of assembling a sewing kit, I did an earlier blog post on mine here.  I also did a post on beginning cross-stitch that you can find here if you’re looking for Summer projects.

Do any of you sew?  It seems to be a dying art like homemaking.  I’d love to know what you think!

  1. Love your beautiful aprons! I’m saddened by the loss of homemakers & homemaking in our society. As a past Home Ec teacher it is hard to REALIZE@A time when we need homemaking skills so much there is very little formal education available. I fear sewing will soon be a lost art (as many hand sewing forms already ARe). Thanks for promoting this great SETof skills. I hope you are teaching your daughters too!I worked full time until a few years ago & didn’t have time for my many creative pursuits. I have loved the time I’ve had the past few years to return to past skills & talents & learn new ones too! A season for all things.?Love what you are doing! ?

    1. Brenda, Thank you so much for your sweet, kind, and thoughtful comment! You have no idea how much that means to me! Andy tells me I’m about 50 years too late in what I’m doing, but that’s why I feel so strongly about it. Now is the time when we need an emphasis on how important homemaking is. I truly believe it’s becoming a lost art, so I will continue to promote it and be an advocate it. Thank you for your support and wisdom!! Love you, my friend!!
