I took this -and made it this -So fun! I love Dresden plate ruler/template thingy! Takes all the mystery out of them :) If you look back at this post I have more information about it, and the pattern I used for the pincushion.
ETA: the link to the pattern is here! I didn’t realize it was hiding :)
My Wonderland fabric just keeps on giving! I promise I didn’t buy that much – just love using up all the little bits :)
This is what Emmalie was working on while I sewed – “I’m organizing for you!” she tells me. I understand where the anal/perfectionist comes from, aahhmm, I just hope she outgrows some of it before it keeps her from enjoying anything less than perfect. Such a sweetie, and all the while … Read More »
That’s me getting stuff done! I opted to do the sewing and then focus on the nitty gritty :)
For my Ella girl:Tutorial found here. I’m sure I didn’t do it just like the tute, I printed the pdf and went for it – next time I may go have it blown up a bit :)
A Bible cover for my mom : If anyone’s interested in a tutorial, I could be persuaded, well maybe next week. . . Funny thing, I purchased this fabric and have had the measurements since Fall! I guess I wanted to be able to give it to her in person :)

This is what I came up with while stitching down my binding yesterday! I love that I have grown as a seamstress, to the point where I can envision a bag, and have the experience to accomplish it! I had a few scraps the same size and that started the thought process, I always want to use up those extra bits somehow :)
There’s not really a front or back . . .
I added pockets to my lining, to fit a phone, pens and miscellaneous bits that always land at the bottom. I added stuff for the picture, but I’m not sure I’m going to keep it . . . have to think it out – it may end up in my etsy shop.
I did a bit of random quilting within the panels.
My only change in … Read More »
Once the kids were tucked into bed, I ran to the grocery store. . . I was in need of chocolate :) It has been one of those days – and I don’t keep it on hand as much as possible. With my fix taken care of – I got to work on these Christmas cards. In less than an hour I had my little forest complete, now I need to sit down and write. . . thankfully I have everything on hand! Hope you’ve had a good night! I love sewing in a quiet house :) Joe is here, his little brother (17) hangs out over here on the weekends, they tend to watch Discovery Channel and the like, while it is entertaining – I’d rather sew! Big surprise :)
I hope that you had a great weekend! Mine was busy as usual, and good family time too.
We set up our tree during the week, my skirt looks just right under it! Yes, we have a fake tree. . . while living in Southern California, we were in campus housing (Joe was working on his MA), and for insurance purposes no real trees were allowed – so we went to the local walmart/kmart (I don’t remember which) and got a little tree, for our little apartment, and still use it every year! I’ve been batting the kids away from the tree since Wednesday – Owen just had to press his luck, and see if he would get into trouble for touching. It’s made for a little extra activity on my part, just keeping track of … Read More »
