"Stash Sewing"

Well today I finished up two A-line dresses, a halter dress and a simple peasant dress.  These took a yard each, which means four yards down 296+ to go!  I got these boxed up and shipped out.  Can't wait to get modeling shots.  I am currently working on t-shirt for littlest dear son and my USMC Birthday Ball gown.  It's almost done; need to hem it and put the binding in the sleeves and tada!  Will post a pick when I'm done.

How Roszberries Got It's Name

Hello, Roszberries is a company that was started by my sister over 10 years ago.  She and I decided to go into business together back in 2000.  In March 2001, I had gotten a store owner to rent us some shelf space to showcase our items.  We had dolls, clothes, gift baskets, lots of handmade crafts.  We use to do a lot of craft shows as well.

In May 2001, Rosz lost her battle with LUPUS.  She is now whole and living with the Father.  I was very distraught and didn't want to continue with the business.  She was the only sibling I had.  I took a break for several years.  I got a phone call from a previous customer wanting a few Easter baskets.  I did them for her, and started to get my mojo back.  My husband bought me a new machine and I started sewing one thing at a time.  With much encouragement, I started back sewing and crafting and have been ever since.  I love doing all kinds of crafts!  My daughter is 9 and she loves crafting and sewing too.  She even has her own sewing machine!!!

"I Love Fabric"

It is a chilly day here in sunny California.  No one told me it got this cold here.  I finished DD's jacket and it came out so cute.  She LOVES it!  Finished littlest DS's lounge pants and needless to say he LOVES them too!  I have about 300+ yards of fabric that I need to sew up!  My plan is to sew something everyday until my stash decreases. I will post a pic of the jacket soon, got to get the pics off the camera.  Well I'm going now to do some laundry now and perhaps sew something too.
