embroidery, knitting, quilting, sewing

This last two weeks I have been making Easter dresses for grands. Next week I will be making pillowcases and gowns for hospital. I also need to make Christmas socks for military. Hopefully, I will sew for me.
I need all the help I can get. I finish seams, but I know there are so much more you can do on a serger. I will be getting a new one within the year, since the light is out and costs too much to repair.
I thought there would be a place for questions. I need to make the neck lots smaller on a blouse. The collar sticks out about 2 inches. Shoulders look right. The neck is a 14, smallest part of me! Where can I look for help?
Whenever I finish a quilt I am so glad. I love to see the smile on the receiver's face. My granddaughter, 3 years, just told me today that I (Nana) made this one.
I think the winning one is ugh! The shoes are hideous! I like Christopher's and Elena's. The short and tight looks like they are squeezed into the sack!
You should be able to design for whatever body you have been given. Yes, it is probably harder than designing for not shape!
I guess I sew for a reason.

I will check our library to see if they have. They look great. I listen to books all the time. Great while sewing. 'Read' a lot of books this way.
I love Louise Cutting. She has such good ideas. Occasionally she is on a TV show. She hasn't been in my area of IN lately.
Love to have the bundle.
I need lots of help in garment sewing. The garment is suppose to fit!! I have lots of problems fitting me. I do fine with grands. This book sounds super.
Thanks for the opportunity to win it.
I have three young grands who love Nana creations--I'm pushing it a bit to say creations. I'd love to own this book.
I have a sewing kit made from a hard-case eyeglass case. It contains needles, pins, small scissors, a bobbin of thread, needle pull, safety pin, needle threader, unstitcher, and soap sliver for marking fabric and sharpening needles and pins.
The pins and needles are stuck in small pin cushions glued to top of case and the rest are in the bottom.

Wow this was hard to find--leaving a comment. I added a picture with an old quilt made by a friend of my MIL and it was made in 1923. It is really nice.
I love to serge but don't much except seams or rolled edge. Need to learn more. I have a Viking 910. I wouldn't want to do without my serger and a book giving me more ideas would be great.
