magic sizing

I used to sell candles.
I don't know that I've ever mentioned it on the blog, have I?
it was a long time ago, and I was actually quite good at it.
When I was pregnant with Brandon
I stressed for months over how was I going to sell PartyLite and properly take care of a baby.
My babies pretty much consume my life for a year or more.
As soon as I realized that deciding to no longer sell candles
didn't mean I was a quitter,
I quit.
I had my last show in August of '98, about 5 or 6 weeks before Brandon was born.

Terry, the friend who came to Brandon's birth, was a PartyLite consultant too.
She just loved doing the paperwork.
Now, I didn't hate the paperwork, but it sure wasn't my favorite part.
Terry though?
I can still see her -
she'd scrunch up her shoulders and rub her hands together with glee 
when it was time to get the orders all ready to turn in.

That's how I feel about my magic sizing.
I love the stuff!
I got the star blocks sewn together, and when I pressed the seams,
I discovered that my can was 'bout  empty.
Which means,
I get to open a new can next time I sew!
It's enough to make a girl giddy.


  1. that must be some great stuff! you aren't sniffing it, are you?
    just wanted to make sure.

  2. haha ~ only after it's on the fabric, Mom :-)
    Love you

  3. the things that make us giddy!! I might find a use for that and I dont even sew!! LOL
