My first sewing project

We had a plan, my aunt and me, we were going to make some feeding placemats for my dogs. We began this process last week when we spent a couple of hours at the store just deciding what fabrics we would use. After that we just needed to pick a day we had time to … Continue reading My first sewing project

2017 World Baseball Classic

My grandma tried to teach my brother and me when we were little because she likes it but I was never good at it; maybe that's another reason I don't like it. I could never hit the … Continue reading 2017 World Baseball Classic
