Howdy!  I am a 50-something wife and mother with two daughters and two sons-in-law.  And I love, love, love to sew.  I quilt and especially like to hand piece.  I prefer to hand quilt, too.  Mr. Clark and I are Civil War reenactors, so I make all my own clothes, even my corset and hoops!  We live in a small town in northern Arizona with our dog, two cats and eight chickens.  I’m a little ADD with a touch of OCD and a rather addictive streak.  Which means I start a project, but then I get distracted and start another project, and then get bored and start another project….  One day I realized that most of the blogs I read are by women who finish everything they start.  But I suspect there are lots of women just like me. This is my journey.

    I enjoyed reading your blog and love your Pinterest collections of the Civil War. I also can relate to the unfinished symphonies and the starting and stopping various projects. Lately, it seems that I have to move from one thing to another. I am a California transplant to Franklin, Tennessee, right in the center of one of the Civil War’s bloodiest battles 11/30/1864. I don’t understand my intense fascination with studying the Civil War but have joined our local Roundtable. Have a blessed Merry Christmas and New Year. Barbara Halbig

    Would you consider sewing me a civil war era reenactment dress? I am also on facebook Teresa Silvers Benton,TN

    • Teresa, I have sewed CW dresses for others in the past, but am not able right now to take on such a project. Perhaps there is a reenactor in your area who would be willing to help. If you are new to reenacting and can sew, I recommend starting with a simple work dress. There are several patterns out with fairly decent instructions. I suggest also checking out Elizabeth Stewart Clark’s website: http://www.thesewingacademy.org. Hope this helps!
